Tips for Traveling With Wheelchair Accessible Vans

Traveling with a wheelchair accessible van can be stressful if you don’t plan ahead. Ensure your trip is as stress-free as possible by taking these tips into consideration before you hit the road:

1. Consider Renting a Wheelchair Accessible Van

If you don’t own a wheelchair accessible van or you are flying to your final destination, renting a wheelchair accessible van is a cost-effective solution.

2. Research Your Destination’s Accessibility Before You Go

One of the most important things you can do before heading off on your travels is knowing the accessibility of the places you plan on visiting. Researching the best accessible parking spots, knowing if your hotel has parking facilities, and knowing the best ways to drive from point A to point B can make your trip much more enjoyable!

3. Evaluate Your Current Adaptive Driving Aids

If you own a wheelchair accessible van, take stock of what adaptive driving aids you already have and evaluate what other adaptive driving aids may be helpful for a longer trip. For example, if you’ve just been driving your wheelchair accessible van around town, you may not have seen a need for advanced electrical equipment, like an auxiliary battery. However, with longer trips, tools like this may become more useful.
