An online booking system for accessible accommodation
Disabilities affect approximately 1 billion individuals worldwide, with their families or caregivers sharing the responsibility of ensuring their safety and comfort in various situations. When people with disabilities are travelling, they need to access places with specific equipment (devices for wheelchairs, material in Braille, etc.). However, the information about suitable facilities for disabled people is neither easily accessible nor reliable. The EU-funded Handiscover project aims to provide a booking system that helps people with disabilities to easily identify accessible accommodation that suits their specific needs and allows them to travel independently. It will also develop an Accessibility Management system for the industry to use to manage their accessibility data. Thanks to this project, it is expected that Europe will become a leading player in accessibility data.
