Publication date: July / August 2009.
Comment: “An excellent guidebook offering practical and comprehensive advice to the less mobile traveller. It is not uncommon to find journals offering this level of detail and advice to able bodied travellers, but regrettably, it is a rarity to find such wide ranging, first-hand knowledge and experience, offered in a well-respected publication, for the disabled traveller. Let's hope that there are more to come!”
- Andy Wright, MD of Accessible Travel
