Holiday Travel Tips

Traveling for the holidays? Going to your son’s house to see his family? Ditching to cold to relax in Hawaii on Christmas morning?

Well, we here at AMS Vans, Inc. know how finding good wheelchair transportation can make the holidays harder than they need to be.

In the midst of booking flights or hotel accommodations, it’s important to check on a few things!
– Book your transportation from and to the airport ahead of time! Wheelchair accessible vehicles like taxis and buses are usually not just something you can flag down last minute. You can even go through your hotel for recommendations of transportation companies they partner with!
– When purchasing flights, inquire about wheelchair accessible seating! It’s best to know what you’ll be getting before you book your ticket instead of making it to the gate only to discover that it isn’t a wheelchair accessible flight.

When it comes to living arrangements while you are out of town, it’s impordec-calendartant to:
1) Make sure that the hotel you wish to stay at is wheelchair accessible or that you can at least get a wheelchair accessible room!
2) If you are staying with family, they have either already made their home wheelchair accessible for your visits or you can easily send over a roll-a-ramp to make it up any front steps! (Most interiors of homes are generally wheelchair accessible).

It also might be a good idea to book accommodations through a travel agency! There are plenty of wheelchair travel traveling agencies that are knowledgeable and happy to help you book your trip for the holidays!

BE PREPARED so that you don’t have to worry about your holiday travel experience! Make sure that your wheelchair is in good working condition before you head out of town for the holidays!
