Michelle Malliet, travel agent with Malliet Travel, recently received certification from Special Needs Group, Inc. (, a global provider of special needs equipment for the travel industry, to specialize in special needs / accessible travel. To earn the distinction, Michelle participated in Special Needs Group's in-depth online 3 module certification program.


Through the program, agents gain an understanding of the special needs / accessible travel market. They learn about the best equipment to rent for special needs travel, ways to market special needs / accessible travel, and more.


Nationwide, one in seven persons has some form of disability, and one in five families is touched. By specializing in special needs / accessible travel, Michelle has the ability to help this large percentage of the population travel in an enjoyable, safe and efficient manner.  Michelle opened Malliet Travel in downtown New London in November.


"Through Special Needs' courses, I not only learned how to assist individuals with special needs to enjoy travel, but I found some very valuable new ways to serve the needs of all of my clients," said Michelle. "The population, as well as the travel industry itself, has undergone major changes in the past few years. By completing this program, I have the ability to stay on the cutting edge of these changes and create opportunities for my clients."
