These mobileWOMEN understand firsthand, the challenges of traveling with a disability and have the knowledge, experience and passion to create a memorable vacation, custom designed to your specific wants, needs and budget.
Travel for All will also be organizing accessible trips that we will feature on our site and will be listed in our "Travel Opportunities" . They can also handle any of your traveling needs and have generously offered to donate a portion of the profits of each trip booked through our site, to mobileWOMEN.org. Although all of us including our contributors volunteer, we still have operating expenses such as annual website and domain fees, to cover. These funds will be used towards these expenses and improving the site.
