    Enable Holidays, the tour operator for holidaymakers with limited mobility, has launched its biggest-ever accessible holidays brochure today the 7th January.
    At long last, the travel industry is beginning to take the needs of disabled holidaymakers seriously. It’s a market that cannot be ignored, but it does require high levels of expertise.

    Looking ahead to 2017, Enable will be offering new accessible holidays and adapted tours in South Africa, Antigua, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, Argentina, and Peru; as well as the ever-popular beach destinations and city breaks that continue to be hot sellers.
