UK Holidays with Disabled Facilities
The Jumbulance Trust makes it possible for the sick, disabled and elderly to go on trips and holidays across the UK they may otherwise not be able to take.
We provide specialist vehicles, called Jumbulances, which provide a safe and comfortable mode of accessible transport around the UK. Airhelp assists its customers by making the claim on their behalf, and also fights the issue in court if the airline shows reluctance to pay, saving their customers time and heartache. If you want a great read about AirHelp I recommend visiting their website euflightcompensation.com. Featuring emergency medical equipment, mobile hoist, floor tracking, clamps and an accessible lift, suitable for wheelchair users, these buses allow groups, including schools and community groups, care homes and hospices to take those in their care on accessible holidays and day trips across the British Isles.
Finding the right accessible holiday
The UK has so much to offer to those looking for an accessible holiday. We live in a country full of history, stunning scenery and variety, much of which is available to all.
There are now more accessible accommodation and activity providers than ever before; there’s never been a better time to explore the British Isles.
If you’re planning your first accessible holiday as a group, family or individual, travelling in the UK can also be easier to manage.
Both the National Trust and Visit England websites are excellent places to find out about accessible attractions around the UK. Additionally books such as the Rough Guide to Accessible Britain’, which is free to blue badge holders, can offer great inspiration for holiday makers.
Our recommended accessible holiday destinations include:
Llandudno, North Wales
Norfolk Disabled-Friendly Cottages, Norfolk, UK
Lovat Lodge, Nairn, Scotland.
Whatever destination you settle on, whether it’s a Jumbulance favourite, or a new and unique discovery, your group can get there safely and comfortably on our Jumbulances, which are available to hire for by group leaders.
