‘Travel for All’ accessible travel database launched by The German National Tourist Board

Published on : Thursday, April 11, 2019

The German National Tourist Board has launched a new and comprehensive online database for BarrierFree (accessible) travel. ‘Travel for All’ accessible travel database enables the user to search for a wide range of accessible holiday facilities throughout Germany. These include accommodation, restaurants, activities, shopping centres and essential services such as accessible transport and local tourism offices.

 

 

 

 

The ‘Travel for All’ project has been funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. It was developed by the German Seminar for Tourism (DSFT), in co-operation with the Tourism for All Germany (NatKo) organisation, co-ordinated with a wide variety of tourism partners.

 

 

 

 

Each company included in the database is evaluated using clear quality control criteria by trained researchers. Detailed information about each listed entry can be viewed by the guests – providing more transparency and reliability – and which bear the “Accessibility Checked” seal.

 

 

 

 

Petra Hedorfer, Chief Executive Officer of GNTB’s board of directors, said: “BarrierFree tourism services are indispensable for about ten percent of visitors to Germany. We are launching our new database with over 1,500 fully certified BarrierFree service providers currently included and this information will be expanded on an ongoing basis”.

 

 

 

 

According to him the accessible travel database is highly useful for both consumers and tour operators.  It is an aid not only to the actual travel planning but also researching e.g. activities or accommodation, from a trusted source that provides up to date information from certified partners in BarrierFree travel.
