At Intrepid, we believe travel is for everyone. While there are some destinations or itineraries that are more suitable for accessible travel than others, we’re always open to ways we can do better and learning how we can make our tours more inclusive. We want to help more travellers explore different cultures, meet new people and support the local communities they visit.
What Intrepid Travel are doing
We’re committed to making travel accessible for everyone, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. We’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
How does Intrepid assess my ability?
Everyone’s level of ability is unique, which is why we take the time to assess whether you will be able to complete an existing itinerary, or whether we will be able to make reasonable adjustments to meet your needs before you book.
Completing an existing itinerary generally includes such things as being able to carry your own bags, using our existing transport and accommodation (such as local buses and home stays), and being able to look after yourself independently without your leader's supervision or other assistance, both in scheduled free time and during included activities and meals.
The more we know about your abilities, the better we will be able to assess what we may be able to do to accommodate you and enable you to complete the itinerary, either with or without reasonable adjustments in place.
Do you have trips designed specifically for travellers with disabilities?
Our existing itineraries are not specifically designed for travellers with disabilities, but that doesn’t mean you will not be able to enjoy one of our small group tours – it’s largely dependent on your specific needs and the destination you wish to visit.
Some destinations are better suited for travellers with disabilities than others. Many destinations we visit lack accessible public infrastructure or facilities designed to accommodate travellers with disabilities, but we will do our best to arrange suitable alternatives where possible.
You may also prefer to speak to our Tailor-Made Experiences team and arrange a customised itinerary to suit your needs.
Can Intrepid create a customised trip to suit my needs?
Our Tailor-Made Experiences team develop customised itineraries and special departures for a wide variety of travellers, including travellers with disabilities.
