Book 1. Accessible Tourism. Concepts and Issues
Edited by Dimitrios Buhalis and Simon Darcy (published 2010)
Inclusion, disability, ageing population and tourism are increasingly important areas of study due to their implications for both tourism demand and supply. This book therefore sets out to explore and document the current theoretical approaches, foundations and issues in the study of accessible tourism.
“Harnessing the best conceptual developments on the topic, Accessible Tourism: Concepts and Issues is a scholarly yet hugely readable collection and readily communicates the various contributors’ passion for and command of their subject. I cannot speak highly enough of this endeavour and I’m sure it will take accessible tourism and universal design debates into the mainstream of academic enquiry
and industry practice.“
- Professor Nigel Morgan, The Welsh Centre for Tourism Research

Book 2. Best Practice in Accessible Tourism
Edited by Dimitrios Buhalis, Simon Darcy and Ivor Ambrose (forthcoming, early 2012)
This volume focuses on policy and best practice in accessible tourism, reflecting the ”state-of -the-art” as expressed in a selection of international chapters. It brings together global expertise in planning, design and management to inform and stimulate providers of travel, transport, accommodation, leisure and tourism services to serve guests with disabilities, seniors and the wider markets that require good accessibility. Accessible tourism is not only about providing access to people with disabilities but also it addresses the creation of universally designed environments that can support people that may have temporary disabilities, families with young children, the ever increasing ageing population as well as creating a safer environment for employees to work. The book gives ample evidence that accessible tourism organisations and destinations can expand their target markets as well as improve the quality of their service offering, leading to greater customer satisfaction, loyalty and expansion of business.
"In 25 chapters, Best Practice in Accessible Tourism provides a ‘state-of-the-art” assessment of both theory and practice. This book establishes a new field of study and provides the benchmark against which other contributions will be judged. It integrates the work of all the key players and should be read by academics,managers and government policy makers.”
