The Accessibility and Attitudinal Barriers Model (AABM), originally developed by Takeda & Card (2002, Journal of Travel & Tourism Marketing, 12(1), 47–61), illustrated four travel sectors (transportation, accommodation, eating and drinking establishments, and attractions), and to what extent travel providers encountered accessibility and attitudinal barriers when providing package tours for individuals with physical disabilities who used mobility devices.
