In the Travel Series, we have looked at how airlines and airports are making travel more accessible for individuals with disabilities, but transportation once one has reached their destination is just as important. Getting around on vacation when a wheelchair is required for mobility can be an arduous task; however, there are solutions. Many companies offer vehicles available for rent that are wheelchair compatible. One such company is Wheelchair Getaways.
With its headquarters in Mukilteo, Washington, Wheelchair Getaways has locations across the country and provides a number of wheelchair accessible vans for rent. The company is dedicated to providing quality and reliable transportation for individuals with physical disabilities. Wheelchair Getaways continues to respond with undivided commitment to the needs of persons in wheelchairs and scooters. Wheelchair Getaways is a proven leader in accessible van rental and will lead the industry for many years to come.
Though rates vary across the country, they can be estimated at $80-110 per day. The vans can be delivered to you and are available for cross country trips. For more information and to find a location near you, visit the Wheelchair Getaways website.
