The supply of accessible rooms
Keith Richards (no, not that Keith Richards), spokesman for the Association of British Travel Agents (Abta), says this in a recently posted article on telegraph.co.uk: "Tour operators have to realize that asking for a wheelchair-accessible room is not like asking for a room with a balcony or sea view." The article contains examples where people were not able to lock down an accessible room until eight days before their arrival and other such experiences. Myself, I'm knocked out at how difficult it can often be to get an accessible room reserved, even well in advance. This says to me that there just aren't enough accessible rooms out there. I suggest the demand is outstripping the supply, as the economists would say.
