The company’s new product range offers specially designed and exclusive tours that are tailored for elderly and disabled travellers.
The new product aims to help those with disabilities overcome barriers when travelling, and forms a part of Tripseed’s mission to grow travel back better and make the industry a much more equitable, diverse and inclusive environment.
Extensive accessibility audits have been conducted across properties, tour locations and transportation to evaluate everything from ramp inclinations, availability of grab bars, manoeuvrability clearance and many other important aspects. This will help to advise agents and partners on the most suitable travel options based on the level of assistance required.
Going beyond physical disabilities, Tripseed is also offering specialised guides that are trained in American Sign Language (ASL), British Sign Language (BSL) and Thai Sign Language (TSL & MSTSL), as well as guides trained to assist with any other audio-visual impairments.
Tripseed had also launched a selection of experiences designed to deliver accessible variations of top-selling tours, such as a city tour of Bangkok or evening street food experience in a fully electric Tuk-Tuk, specially outfitted with a built-in wheelchair ramp and wheelchair restraint system.
Travellers may also choose to experience a snorkelling or diving experience alongside a Dive Master fully certified by Disabled Divers International, or a private tour through 200 acres of botanical gardens in a vehicle fully equipped for accessibility.
“We are committed to growing travel in a direction that is open and welcoming for everyone,” says Ewan Cluckie, Tripseed Founder. “Tripseed has always been about breaking down barriers and creating new opportunities.”
“It’s important for us to give Tripseed’s partners a first-mover advantage to repay the trust and support they have given to us so far, and so we’ll be making all of our accessibility information, training and consultation available to them privately during our initial launch period, before making more details publicly available at a later date” says Cluckie.
