Of 1000 autism parents surveyed by IBCCES, 87% said they do not currently take vacations as a family. 93% said they would if autism-friendly options were available. Travelling with autism and other special needs provides a set of challenges that are not widely catered for by larger travel agents. We are the only IBCCES certified Autism Travel Professionals in the UK and as a family-run travel agent with personal experience of facing the challenges of autism, we have a unique approach. Our belief is that everyone deserves to enjoy their dream holiday without boundaries, and we are very proud to be able to offer this service at very competitive rates.
Our sensitive approach to travel will make the experience relaxed, informed and all measures will be taken to work around individual needs. We have global access to unique services that accommodate autistic travellers, which would be difficult for an individual to arrange themselves.
Your personalised travel schedule will be created in an autism-friendly visual format, including photos of your drivers, cars, hotel and activities (please click here to see an example). This schedule will help manage expectations in a way that words alone would not be able to. We will also provide a walking plan including your itinerary and details of all the contacts you will need during your trip. You will be greeted at your destination airport to make sure your holiday gets off to a fantastic start. Read our blog post to discover more about some of the activities we can incorporate into your trip.
