Good question! The laws are definitely on our side in the United States, and most areas have fairly good accessibility standards, with a few east and west coast cities that are really world class in this regard. Europe, on the other hand, is a conundrum. Even post-EU, the laws aren’t quite standardized, so it really depends on exactly where you’re staying.

That said, I’ve been to many places throughout Europe, both on the continent and within the UK, where conditions were extremely good and people have gone out of their way to be helpful. Major cities and many smaller towns in Germany and Sweden were impressive in this regard, while Poland and France seemed to lack a little something. The UK was a mixed bag (heck, even London itself is a mixed bag.)

So, while it’s probably easier to get around in a random locale in the U.S. than a random locale in Europe, it’s definitely an area-by-area issue. Cities and the surroundings of major tourist attractions do tend to be better equipped for accessibility than other regions. Part of the reason for Disabled Travelers is because things are so variable from one place to another, and in a lot of countries, positive change is happening fast.

Have you found it easier to travel in Europe or the United States? Are attitudes much different on either continent? Do you find more wheelchair lifts, wheelchair accessible vehicles and the like in some cities more than others?

With Best Regards,
