We Make YOUR Travel Plans EASY
Swimming pool under water background
Still Sheltering....

As we approach the end of July we are faced with serious choices regarding school for our kids and grandkids, staying home, the possibility of traveling, dining out and much, much more. It is not an easy time for any of us and the current world situation has impacted the travel industry very hard. I am determined to use the extra time I have to improve myself both physically and intellectually. I found a nearby gym that is open and has a pool lift so I can get back to swimming every morning. It's a great way to start my day! I've also returned to being an avid reader and have not been without a book since the pandemic began. I love getting lost in the pages and replacing reality with fiction for a short time each day. I even started a neighborhood Book Club via Zoom which has been a great success. Learning how to host Zoom Meetings has been lots of fun as well.
Please stay safe, stay healthy and always wear a MASK when you leave your home. It's the right thing to do...
Time to Book 2021 & Beyond Travel
This is the time to make your vacation plans as cruises and tours for 2021 and later are selling out quickly. Don't be left with nowhere to go. All travel vendors have excellent policies in place to protect your investment such as allowing last minute cancellations and rebooking options. U.S. Riverboats (American Queen Steamboat Company) are an excellent choice for persons with disabilities as they have accessible staterooms and motor coaches with lifts. They are planning to resume service in mid to late August, 2020. Accessible cabins are very limited so don't be disappointed. Another option is motor coach tours in different regions of the United States. Motor Coach Companies are required to provide lift equipped vehicles with proper notice and can accommodate two wheelchairs per bus. They will also work with us on choosing the best itinerary and reserving accessible hotel accommodations. Alaska cruises & cruise tours are selling out rapidly for next summer. Rest assured that all cruise and tour vendors are putting strict guidelines and protocols in place including reduced capacity and enhanced ventilation systems. I'm happy to discuss these with you so you can reserve your trip and travel with confidence.

Did you know that our National Parks offers free admission to persons with disabilities? It's called the National Parks Access Pass and is valid for the lifetime of the pass holder. It used to be called the Golden Access Passport but the name was changed in 2007. Seniors also qualify for free admission.
Click on the link below for invaluable information on taking advantage of these great programs.

Ice Cream has been my pandemic weakness. We have a great ice cream shop (several of them) called Braums and Steve and I are frequent visitors. Two scoops for only $1.99. You just cannot go wrong with ice cream on a hot summer day. My favorite flavors are Cherry Pecan and Rocky Road.
Let me know if you're in the area and we will treat you to some yummy ice cream.

Are You Interested In Attending
Virtual Events???

Please let me know if you would like to attend a virtual event focusing on destinations and/or how to travel with a disability. I am happy to host these via Zoom so they can be interactive. Apparently, it's a sign of the times and I think they would be beneficial to all. Let me know your thoughts and we can get something going in the month of August.
Let me help you plan your next vacation!!!
We Do Individual & Group Travel

Do you know that we actually plan more trips for individuals than we do for our groups? We love when you participate in our groups but please remember to call us when you want to plan a vacation for the two of you or with a group of friends or family members. We can most likely plan any type of vacation you want and we will be sure to address all your accessibility requirements and needs. We so enjoy doing the research for you and look forward to planning that next trip just for you! Also, if you see one of our groups that you would like to do but perhaps the dates don't work, give us a call. We can usually duplicate the same trip just for you and your travel companions.
Need a Scooter?
We can help!
SNG has an online store where you can purchase masks, gloves, thermometers and other medical supplies.

Do you need to rent a scooter or other mobility equipment for your next cruise or land trip?
Be sure and let us know and we can make arrangements for you through Special Needs Group.

Standard and heavy duty scooters, wheelchairs, hospital beds, hoyer lifts, lift chairs, oxygen and more are all possibilities for you when you travel.
For the time being, Abilities Expos are rescheduled until 2021. I will keep you informed regarding dates and future updates. We miss you and hope to see you soon....
Please reach out with a phone call or email anytime if you have travel related questions. We are always here to help and look forward to speaking with you.
