Ben Corp is managing director of Able2Go and an accessible travel consultant and travel enabler that can help you book your next accessible holiday with ease.
Ben has personal care sector experience working in his family’s care home and experience booking accessible travel holidays all over the world with his sister – who unfortunately suffered a brain injury and was left using a wheelchair. Ben has a real passion to make travel easier for you and personally believe that there is no need to book a “disabled holiday” because with Able2Go you can just book a holiday, safe in the knowledge that all of your needs will be catered for.
When Ben was fourteen his sister suffered a severe brain injury in a car accident and as a result was in a wheel chair for sometime. Although she made huge progress in the 10 years since the accident she still suffers from the brain injury every day. So from the age of seventeen onwards he took his sister on a yearly holiday and experienced first hand the key issues when booking an accessible holiday.
During these trips Ben began to realise how much hard work it was to plan the travel and even harder to bring those plans to fruition when travelling on a accessible holiday. Ben and his sister were faced with problems such as being told on our arrival that the accessible room, which had previously been confirmed, had not in fact ever been booked. He had to change their room multiple times, which was unsettling for his sister.
Ben made it his mission to deliver stress free travel for those looking to book accessible holidays and travel the world with ease and this is why Able2Go exists.
