Benefits of inclusive tourism
· People with health conditions and impairments tend to take longer holiday breaks than average and therefore tend to spend more money per trip.
· Disabled travellers and senior travellers spend significantly more when they go on holiday than other market groups.
· Inclusive businesses have higher occupancy rates and a more loyal customer base who is keen to recommend them to their family and friends.
· Becoming more inclusive can make life easier for a wide range of customers. Think of people with hearing loss, mental or visual impairments, wheelchair users, senior travellers, or families with young children.
· The market is set to increase as the UK’s population ages and the benefits for businesses and destinations catering for inclusive tourism are growing.
· 86% of senior travellers make a return visit if their needs are met.
· It's a human right!
