Tips for Exceptionally Inclusive Travel and Tourism

Consider these tips to ensure accessible and inclusive travel experiences:
    • Early Scheduling: Request accessibility services well in advance of your tour, event, or excursion to secure the most qualified interpreters and translators.
    • Accommodation Considerations: Ensure accessibility professionals have the necessary accommodations, including lodging and meals, or arrange per diem compensation to cover these expenses.
    • Travel Itinerary: Share travel itineraries and agendas, including names, topics, and locations, with your accessibility professionals well in advance to ensure optimal clarity and accuracy of services.
    • Strategic Interpreter Placement: Position interpreters near primary speakers and ensure clear visibility for all participants. Avoid backlighting with windows or lamps for sign language interpreters.
    • Clear Communication: Encourage one-at-a-time conversations and ask participants to speak clearly. If someone speaks out of view of Deaf, hard-of-hearing, or non-English speaking travelers, relay their comment and identify the speaker.
    • Direct Interactions: Engage directly with travelers, looking at them rather than the interpreter or accessibility professional during interactions.

    Following these guidelines will help to create an inclusive experience for all travelers, explorers, and guests!
