Advocates for Inclusive Tourism
Making the World Accessible for All
Travability was formed in 2007.
Initially Travability was set up as a vehicle to publish accessible travel information via its web site travability.travel. Today, Travability is a part of a worldwide group who’s mission is to create equality in accessibility in the hospitality and travel industries.
Our mission is to be agents of change; to inspire people who have never traveled before to do so, and to inspire others to do more. To encourage all cultures of the world to see disability as an integral part of life, and to provide the motivation and tools to the tourism industry to allow them to create accessible environments that enable inclusion in an economically sustainable way.

From The Blog
Recently we have seen some new entrants into the market and some major government departments produce recent advertising and brochures containing "fake" stock imagery. Unfortunately, the stock image world is full of imagery that uses able bodied models placed in wheelchairs for the purpose of a photoshoot.
In the first piece of new research into the Australian domestic Accessible Tourism market in nearly 10 years, My Travel Research were commissioned to do both a qualitative and qualitative study with the aim of determining the current value of the market, the latent demand and the key barriers preventing travel for people with a disability.
Parks Victoria are embarking on developing a trail grading system to guide potential handcycle riders on the suitability of selected trails in a number of National Parks. The system will grade trails in a similar manner to walking and ski trails based on length, gradient and sustained climbing/descent.
PhotoAbility is an exciting niche stock image library which embraces people with disabilities and showcases them as active and involved members of the community. PhotoAbility only uses models with genuine disabilities in real life situations. This gives advertisers, agencies and the media access to an inspiring range of images which were previously unavailable. It also gives the assurance that all of the imagery is authentic.
