Joy of Making Travel More Accessible


1
The journey of Planet Abled, a company that provides travel solutions to the disabled, began when its founder Neha Arora was a little girl. Trained to be an engineer, 33-year old Arora spent nine years in the corporate sector, but she always knew what she wanted to do in life.
With disabled parents—her mother is wheelchair-bound and her father is blind —Arora believes there is a sense of discrimination when it comes to access to public spaces. Arora explains: “As kids, my sister and I wanted to travel with our parents. All of us shared our love for travel, despite many complications along the way. We have always been there to take care of our parents, but I realised there was more that I could do. Everyone loves to travel, including people with disabilities, that is where the idea of Planet Abled germinated.’’
