Authored by the editor of the leading travel magazine for people with disabilities, Emerging Horizons, this second edition of Barrier Free Travel continues to be the definitive guide to accessible travel for those who use a wheelchair, walker, or cane or have any physical ailment that may slow down their gait. It is a well-researched resource that contains detailed information about the logistics of planning accessible travel by plane, train, bus, and ship. It contains resources, travel tips, and updated information about accessible travel options.

Chapters include information on how to find and book an accessible room, cruises, ground transportation, overseas travel, advocacy, disability law and rights, air travel, protecting your wheelchair when you travel, how to find and work with a travel agent, and resources from around the world. This new edition includes a chapter on children’s travel issues and – due to popular demand - a much expanded section on cruises. Expanded airport security procedures have changed the way we travel and thus the book offers new information about these security procedures and how they apply to wheelchair-users and slow walkers.

Barrier-Free Travel contains essential information - not just common-sense tips. Because of the chaos and uncertainty involved in travel, people who need access accommodations need thoughtful, reliable information. This book gives readers the tools and resources to prepare for their journeys and is essential reading for every traveler with mobility limitations.
