Accessible Travel Vacations

You don't believe physical ability should stop you from travelling, and neither do we.

As an accessible travel agency, Flight Centre's mission is to open up the world to those who want to see. With the best selection of accessible vacations for people with disabilities, deciding where to go will be the only thing getting in your way.

Our accessible travel specialists are with you every step of the way to ensure your vacation is comfortable, safe and most of all, rewarding. Tell us where you’d like to go, and we’ll help you get there. We can plan just about anything:

• Wheelchair accessible air travel
• Accessible river cruises
• Accessible hotels and vacation planning
• Accessible group tours
• Accessible ocean cruises

When it comes to accessible travel, the sky's the limit with Flight Centre.

Accessible Travel - Group tours

Accessible Travel Group Tours

Guided tours are one of the most convenient ways to travel new destinations. Tours are lead by local experts, include activities and excursions, and have a healthy balance of group time and you-time. Many of our clients who require accessible travel planning prefer guided tours for comfort, ease, and an authentic real life experience. Our friendly Flight Centre Accessible Travel Specialists are experts in accessible travel. We’ll find the right trip for you with a guided tour company that fits your physical needs and abilities so you can enjoy the next trip of a lifetime.

David Lyons Black

Accessible Travel - David Lyons-Black  - Disability travel agent

David Lyons-Black is a veteran in the travel industry. He has a flair for connecting people with the right destinations and fulfilling lifelong dreams along the way. He’s no stranger to barriers. His clients value his experience and feel confident entrusting him with their travel plans.

In 2006, David was an active traveller, working to build his own travel agency when complications of encephalitis - an acute inflammation of the brain and spine - left him with extreme muscle weakness in his legs. Faced with the new reality of the limitations of life in a wheelchair, David briefly feared his days of flying off to exotic destinations had been permanently grounded.

Shortly after though, overcoming his fears just long enough to visit friends in Chicago, David was back in motion. Since then, he’s travelled to over 25 different destinations around the globe, including Australia, Austria, Switzerland, France, Germany, Mexico, Montreal, San Francisco, and many more that he didn't think were possible when he first started using a chair.

Today, as a Flight Centre Independent Agent, David is a self-described “inclusivity advocate.” However, instead of just talking about changing the world, David wants to show you how to experience all it has to offer – without barriers. Clients are amazed at the attention to detail David’s trip planning includes and often comment feeling reassured by his personal experience with wheelchair accessible vacations and his knowledge of accessibility issues.

David has “the best job on the planet,” working from his home in beautiful Vancouver, BC, where he lives with his husband Dale and their magnificent cat, Spencer.
