With the summer fast approaching, travel expert Harri, from Harri Loves Travel, has kindly written a blog for us about travelling with autistic adults and children…
Everyone deserves a break, whether you have a long term condition or care for someone who does. Here are my top travel tips for holiday planning:
- Wear a sunflower lanyard as it helps airline crew to be aware of those who may require further assistance
- Check out the facilities offered airports – the majority of airports in the UK will offer assistance with some having autism friendly quiet areas – just ask for them
- Look out for autism friendly hotels and resorts which offer specialised services and activities
- Consider a cruise as an alternative holiday experience, autism friendly cruises offer priority boarding and dietary accommodations
- Book airport parking or transfers to/from the airport in advance to save your time and hassle on day of departure
As an independent travel agent, my aim is to take the hassle and stress out of planning travel, leaving you and your family to enjoy a memorable holiday and most importantly to have fun! When you use my services, I will:
- Take the time to understand your exact travel requirements
- Use my destination expertise to create a tailor made travel plan for you
- Make arrangements at the airport (including adapted transfers) in the accommodation or resort and anything else in between – think of me as your own travel concierge!
- Be available by phone including evenings and weekends so that you have someone to help you if you need any travel assistance
Using a network of trusted travel partners, I help customers find and create the holiday of their dreams. This can be anything from a UK break, an all-inclusive beach resort, luxury villas, cruises and even a Disney holidays. If you have an idea please do get in touch and lets chat.
