Title: Tap into a potential market of $3.5 trillion & make travel easier for people with disabilities?
There are over 1billion people with disabilities Worldwide.
Surprisingly, many Travel industries digital products such as websites, payment portals etc are inaccessible.
Start to become an accessible company, understand the international digital traveller, identify your own organisation barriers, and can create your digital action plan. In short, you will improve travel for all, including those with disabilities.
In 2016 Destek worked with a major international airline to improve the accessibility of its website so that its online services are inclusive to disabled customers and meet the US Department of Transportation standards
The airline objectives were to ensure that disabled customers could search and book flights, purchase and proceed to manage their booking to include making complaints.
The outcomes were to not only to meet compliance but also to reach a wider audience, and to ensure everyone could take up any online offers and increase turnover.
Of course, having an accessible website should not be limited to just Airlines, Travel Agencies, Hotels, Train and Ferries for example would also benefit from making services inclusive to all and tap in to the potential spending power!
If you are there we hope you will pop along to say hello or if you are already registered, book a meeting via the portal today!
