#AccessFest – Can you help?
What is #AccessFest?
Travel lovers will know that searching for disabled access information about hotels can often be tricky or time-consuming. That’s why we love disabled access reviews at Euan’s Guide, because people can read about other disabled travellers’ experiences before deciding to visit themselves. If someone with similar access requirements writes about how good a particular hotel was for them, other disabled people are more likely to visit too.
With festival season fast approaching, we’ve teamed up with online accessible travel platform Umoja, leading travel guide the Lonely Planet, Blue Badge Style, and the FED to help share disabled access information about hotels in five of Britain’s major festival cities, and we need your help! The project is called #AccessFest, and its goal is to improve accessibility information of UK festival cities.
How to help
If you’re taking a trip this summer, or have a spare bit of time to visit a local hotel in your city; we’d love to hear about it. Send us your disabled access reviews of any of the hotels in our wishlist that you have been to or are planning to visit this summer. Don’t forget that adding pictures makes a big difference!
