PPL presents program on traveling with assistance

PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will hold a program on travel planning and accessible travel at 6:30 p.m. July 23. Barb Lavelle and Roger and Linda Gustafson will lead the presentation designed to help those with concern about accessible travel, whether due to age or disability.

Lavelle will discuss working with a travel agent, the important questions to ask and how to shape a travel itinerary that is right for you. The Gustafsons will discuss what they have learned about accessible travel over the past 13 years on their trips to Australia, New Zealand, the Baltics, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Germany, Untied Kingdom, France, Austria, Belgium, Spain and throughout the United States.

They will highlight many aspects of accessible travel, including planning, accessible air travel, available travel equipment, accessible van rentals, taxis, hotel rooms, and cruises as well as Internet travel sites and publications that make accessible travel so much easier. In addition, they will address the ADA rights of travelers with special needs and how to ensure that those rights are honored.
