research on the country where you want to travel, the service they
offer for disabled persons and the airport’s services for your special
needs. Inform the travel service provider about your disability so they

As a traveler with disability, keep in mind some useful tips. Through
this, you will be prepared in any way possible. First, prepare an extra
medication in case of emergency. Also carry with you your doctor’s
advice so you can present it if needed. Consider having a travel adviser
or agent, this is a great way to lessen your burden because some of
them are well-trained in working with differently abled persons. Avoid
connecting flights if possible. You can save more time when you fly
directly. However, connecting flights can also be made possible in line
with your comfort if you have plenty of time between flights. Having

flight and it can save your energy.

everyone. Every person has the right to be treated fairly with or
without special needs. Thus, you need to be aware of the rules for
travelers with disabilities when you go through an airport security. Any
problem you encounter during your travel in connection to violating
your rights should be taken with immediate action. You can complain
directly to resolve the issue. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) can also
help you sort out the problem if nothing happens after your direct
complaint.
