    This article is a travel topic

For persons with disabilities, travel can be more complicated for those who are not disabled. More challenges are posed, and facilities that exist for travelers do not always make special accommodations for the disabled. Before embarking on any journey, it is important for the disabled person to determine how the issues s/he faces with that disability may impact him/her and how to address them.


General[edit]

Blind[edit]

Dog Guides[edit]

Special testing and paperwork is required in Hawaii, the UK and Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. In general, travel to island countries should be planned for well in advance when traveling with a dog guide. Most developing countries don't have laws permitting dog guides in public places.
