Experience fun, hassle-free accessible holidays and trips

Are you planning an accessible holiday or day trip but aren’t sure how to travel to your destination?

Hiring one of our medically adapted Jumbulances makes accessible travel possible for people with disabilities and other serious illnesses. It’s a perfect option for groups with special travel requirements.

Our Jumbulances are in excellent condition and well maintained by our skilled drivers. Wheelchair friendly and fully equipped with essential features such as trolleybeds, defibrillators and oxygen means disabled and severely ill passengers can travel comfortably and safely across the UK and Europe.
 
Travelling can be difficult if you have a disability or require additional support, or you care for someone who does. As a charity, our aim is to ensure that travel is available for everyone, because we all deserve a break from time to time.
Hiring a Jumbulance means you can travel comfortably as a group without the stress of public transport like aeroplanes or trains. Jumbulances are perfect for groups with varied requirements because our accessible coaches have been equipped for a wide range of scenarios. They can accommodate wheelchair users, elderly passengers and those who are severely ill.

UK DESTINATIONS

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:

FRANCE

Lourdes is a town in southwestern France, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. It’s known for the Sanctuaires Notre-Dame de Lourdes, or the Domain, a major Catholic pilgrimage site. Each year, millions visit the Grotto of Massabielle (Grotto of the Apparitions) where, in 1858, the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to a local woman. In the grotto, pilgrims can drink or bathe in water flowing from a spring.
