28/06/2015 - The European Accessible Tourism Directory

Pantou is the Greek word for Everywhere. This web service presents the Directory of suppliers of accessible tourism services in all European Union and Accession countries. It also includes suppliers such as travel agents and tour operators who provide accessible services for Europe-inbound customers. The Pantou Directory: makes it easier for tourists with any kind of access needs to find what they are looking for when planning a visit; promotes European accessible tourism suppliers, showing places to go and things to do – in safety and with convenience and comfort. Until now it has been difficult for a visitor with access needs to find out about the availability of suitable suppliers across Europe. Pantou has been developed by ENAT, EWORX S.A. and VVA to meet the need for a reliable and comprehensive pan-European guide to all kinds of tourism services that are currently offered for this market segment. Suppliers who are listed on Pantou provide a wide variety of tourism services, including accommodation, facilities, transport, tours, venues and attractions that are designed to be inclusive and accessible for people who have a disability, long-term health condition or other specific accessibility requirements. To be listed with Pantou, tourism suppliers must indicate the type of service(s) offered and the particular target groups they can serve. The Pantou Directory is supported by the European Commission, Directorate GROW (Tourism Unit).
