First, you need to decide what type of a vacation you want. Do you want to travel far? Go to a resort? Take a cruise? Enjoy nature? See an exotic part of the world? These are all possibilities. It may take a bit of extra planning, but you may be pleasantly surprised at the options that are available. Airlines make special efforts to accommodate people with disabilities. You just need to let them know ahead of time what kind of accommodation you need. If your destination is a particular resort or resort area, inquire whether the hotels have special facilities or can make accommodations to fit your requirements. Many cruise lines design cruises for people with disabilities and have medical staff on board to deal with any problems that might arise. Some travel agents specialize in arranging trips and vacations for people with special requirements. A helpful travel agent can find group tours planned especially for people with physical problems or pave the way for independent travel by helping you to connect with the services that you need to succeed. A travel agent can also find the right transportation, shuttles, and services to get you safely to the airport and assist you to get around in unfamiliar airports or make smooth transitions from one means of travel to another; a good agent will find the way to ensure safe arrival at your hotel or arrange appropriate transportation for sightseeing at your destination. The agent can even arrange to rent special equipment when you reach your destination or make the arrangements to transport your equipment with you. If you want to get away and see the world, don't let PD stop you!
