This volume presents an international selection of invited contributions on policy and best practice in accessible tourism, reflecting current practices across a range of destinations and business settings. It brings together global expertise in planning, design and management to inform and stimulate providers of travel, transport, accommodation, leisure and tourism services to serve guests with disabilities, seniors and the wider markets that require good accessibility. Accessible tourism is not only about providing access to people with disabilities but also addresses the creation of universally designed environments, services and information that can support people who may have temporary disabilities, families with young children, the ever-increasing ageing population, as well as creating safer work places for employees. The book gives ample evidence that accessible tourism organisations and destinations can expand their target markets as well as improve the quality of their service offering, leading to greater customer satisfaction, loyalty and expansion of business.

Follow the story of one man has he takes his first steps into the online world back in 1997. In a world before YouTube, Twitter and Google, a narrative is woven from the stories of a number of disparate souls cast adrift on the information superhighway with no compass, no map, no chart or hope in their heart. The internet is more than just online shopping and cute cat videos. Sit down and read some of the stories influenced by it.
