National standards for disabled access and facilities in hotels and other holiday accommodation have been drawn up, with input from the Tourist Board and disability organisations. Travel agents and tour operators can give you details about the accommodation they deal with. When making your holiday arrangements you should also ask how easy it is to get to the amenities you wish to visit, perhaps the beach, tourist attractions, local shops or the town centre, from where you will be staying.
