Congratulations to Richard Fanselow and team on the launch of the New Zealand-wide accommodation and activity guide especially designed for anyone who has mild to major mobility difficulties. Access4all (www.access4all.co.nz) uses specially positioned photos so people can check out bathrooms, entrance areas, bedrooms and living areas and find places to stay that are suitable. All accommodation listed has a combination of at least one access unit and other easily accessible standard units. It also uses photos so people can choose suitable attractions and activities at their destination.
The ACCESS4ALL Accommodation Guide has been developed by Fanselow, Websight Architects, Profitsense, and Gorilla Business Advisors, with assistance from the Ministry of Social Development. Fanselow has been in a wheelchair for 14 years and travelled extensively during this time in New Zealand and overseas. His personal travel experiences are the inspiration behind this guide.
The guide is a major advance in its use of photographs as well as reviews of places visited. The website encourages any kind of feedback on the guide itself and their approach to providing information. It is fully functional, meaning people can book directly from it in the same way as other guides like the AA, Booking.com and Expedia. Using the website will help it to increase listings and further expand throughout New Zealand next year. More northern destinations will be added in the coming weeks before Christmas.
