Davis, who was in a car accident at 18 that caused C6 and C7 spinal cord injuries that resulted in quadriplegia, is committed to creating opportunities for people with mobility disabilities to travel worry-free. “Traveling while in a wheelchair requires a tremendous amount of logistical planning, and unforeseen barriers can easily ruin a trip,” she said. “By leveraging our knowledge of accessibility needs, we can vet tour operators, arrange for appropriate lodging and transportation, and deliver necessary equipment that enables wheelchair travelers to explore the world with ease and confidence.”
PUSHLiving’s lifestyle brand has a solid track record of wheelchair accessibility education and advocacy that informs its travel division. “We’re keenly anticipating May’s four-star, fully escorted Portugal tour, and are looking forward to welcoming singles, couples, and families to Lisbon,” Davis said. “Travelers will enjoy two weeks of four-star accommodations, personalized tours, and pampering.” The Portugal tour can accommodate up to 12 total travelers (up to 6 wheelchairs and their companions and families), and will provide durable medical equipment – such as shower chairs or benches, ramps, and lifts – tailored to the needs of each guest.
