    I once went on holiday with my girlfriend who had MS and was a manual wheelchair user. But we took her carer on holiday too. I paid for the carers room including single supplement plus flight!

    It worked out very well as we went with a company called Accessible Travel to Tenerife. They picked us up and returned us to the airport in a wheelchair accessible vehicle. The same vehicle took us on day trips too.

    If you don't want the expense of taking a carer but want support try Limitless travel as carers are included on the trip. http://www.limitlesstravel.org/tours...and-sun#carers

    Interesting, although the tours sound a bit too long for me. EIGHT hours and two toilet breaks? In a hot climate where you are chugging back the water. You have got to be kidding me? In which case we'de be paying for 2 tours we couldn't possibly manage. I'll bookmark them anyway. Cheers LT

    I solved the problem by going to stay in Turkey in a hotel owned by people I know after years of visiting. The wife is a trained nurse so she helps me. I get assistance at the airports and am met at the other end by the people I am staying with. Solves many problems and allows me to spend time in a warm enviroment

    This is an OLD thread from last year. The advice still stands. Altogether travel are the best I found and no, there is no discount. you are in effect paying for the care AND the carers, flight, hotel. It WAS expensive, but we needed the assistance.
