Did you know that in the world, 1 in every 3 of us has accessibility needs?
In Europe alone there are approximately 138.6 million people with accessibility needs, and that equates to 1 in every 5 Europeans. Of these, 36 % are aged between 5 and 64 and 64% are 65+.
Of the countries that make up the European Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain are those with the highest number of inhabitants with accessibility needs.
Being accessible allows you to reach out to a larger number of clients and sets you in line with market trends whereby elderly visitors (65+) will soon represent one third of all EU tourists.
Furthermore, accessibility is not only advantageous for people with disabilities. An accessible environment, product or service is more convenient, easier to understand and use by everyone. Accessibility is synonymous with good quality, and so is being in compliance with the different national and regional regulations that govern accessibility in the tourism sector.
In short, if you take into consideration the needs and requirements of people with disabilities or with accessibility needs in your business, then you are being socially responsible.
