Mark Harper, minister for disabled people, said British tourism businesses are ‘missing a trick’
Disabled people often find it easier to organise an overseas holiday than one in Britain, according to the head of the country’s largest disabled holiday company. Paul Nadin, managing director of Disabled Holiday Directory, cannot accommodate 20% of his clients.
He said: “The situation is quite bad at the moment. It’s often easier to arrange a holiday for someone abroad than it is here in Britain. Many will want to go abroad, but for those with more serious disabilities or who prefer to enjoy what Britain has to offer, it’s become more and more difficult.”
