Charitable Travel are committed at every opportunity to offer holidays that are accessible to all. We hand-pick our partners and we’re delighted to be working with Ocean Florida to offer holidays to the Sunshine State for all, and now with accessibility front of mind. Ocean Florida has become the UK’s number 1 independent Florida specialist, and that’s why we’ve picked Ocean to be a key partner of Charitable Travel. Remember that with every Ocean Florida holiday booked through Charitable Travel 5% of the price can go to your choice of charity at no extra cost.
Like Charitable Travel, Ocean Florida believes in creating the holiday of a lifetime for everyone. Together we’re experts in responsible travel and travelling to Florida, but you are the expert when it comes to your needs. That’s why Ocean Florida has created a special assistance holiday programme that puts you in charge. From concierge assistance in UK airports to adapted accommodation or car hire in the US – Ocean Florida and Charitable Travel can book it.
Whether you’re dreaming of a villa, hotel, or a cruise holiday, Ocean Florida and Charitable Travel can find the accessible accommodation to match. For mobility needs, we have widened doorways, walk-in showers, and hoist-entry pools. For visual impairments, audio alarms, accessible paths and always ADA-approved rooms are available. For hearing impairments, sound amplifiers, visual alarms, and closed caption services can be booked. And that’s without even mentioning accommodations for those with cognitive differences, including autism-certified hotels with low-sensory areas and specially trained staff!
No matter what you’re looking for in terms of the accessibility of your accommodation, we can work with Ocean Florida to find the property that works for you (and your personal style).
As Florida specialists, Ocean Florida knows where to find the best accessible thrills in the Sunshine State, whether that’s sailing in the beautiful Biscayne Bay or wheelchair-firendly ziplining above the alligators in Gatorland!
If you’d prefer something a little calmer, how about the wonder of a Disney stage show with assisted listening systems, a warm summer’s day spent on a wheelchair-accessible beach, or letting a child with autism explore in the safety of a low-sensory attraction?
What ever you want to do on your holiday, we can build you the perfect itinerary.
When planning a holiday that requires special assistance, we know its about more than where you stay and what you do, you also need to consider how you’ll get there.
With Ocean Florida, Charitable Travel can offer a complimentary meet and greet service at UK airports to help you in any way you need as you start your holiday.
We can also help with airline assistance, local transfers, and car rentals to ensure the beginning of your holiday goes as smoothly as possible.
We understand that not all disabilities are visible and there are many factors that can significantly impact day-to-day life, at home and on holiday.
When you speak to our team of expert travel agents, let them know about any medical conditions that you feel may impact your holiday. Using this information and their wealth of expertise and knowledge, we can help you plan your perfect holiday with any assistance you may need.
Want to unpack once but see loads of places and do loads of things on holiday? A cruise is the perfect way to do it. With Ocean Florida and Charitable Travel, you can book staterooms equipped with ramped bathroom thresholds, assisted listening devices or performances with sign language interpreters, and a partnership with Autism on the Seas allows us to book autism-friendly cruise holidays, with priority check-in, special menu options, sensory-friendly films and toys for families, and more!
