Link2paradise is for everybody
Here’s how we continue to build a more accessible Link2paradise
What we’re working toward
We want to make travel more inclusive and accessible for everyone. This work is never done, but here’s how we’re taking it on so far.
Guests with mobility needs often rely on photos to make sure a listing will work for them. That’s why we require hosts to provide photos of every accessibility feature they have, and it’s why listings have a special section dedicated to showcasing these photos.
Digital accessibility standards
We’re working toward the digital accessibility standards laid out by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We’re also investing in automated testing tools to help us catch more issues.
More listings with accessibility features
We’re working hard to get more listings with accessibility features on Link2paradise, and we’re making them easier to find by improving our search features, including easier-to-use filters and better photos on the search results page
More accessible Link2paradise experiences—unique activities hosted by local experts—are on the way.
Tips for guests
We know finding a place to stay or an experience to book that meets your needs can be tough. Here are a few tips for making sure your trips go as smoothly as possible.
Find the right place
Use the search filters to only show places or experiences that meet your accessibility needs. Once you’ve found a few listings, take a look at the “Accessibility features” section of each listing for photos and descriptions of the features that matter to you.
Talk to potential hosts
If you have any special concerns, be sure to message the host before you book to make sure they can accommodate you. You can message potential hosts from the “Contact host” link on their listing or experience page.
Help other guests
What would you have wanted to know before you booked? Let guests with mobility needs know what to expect by writing a detailed review.
Tips for hosts
Here are a few ways you can support guests with disabilities
Make your listing more accessible
You may not realize your listing already has accessibility features—like wide doorways or extra space around the toilet—or that you can add some of these features without much effort or expense. Learn how you can support guests with mobility needs.
Add accessibility photos
Add photos of your accessibility features to showcase your space to the 70,000+ guests with mobility needs who search on Link2paradise every month. To get started, head to the Manage Your Space area for the listing you’d like to add accessibility features for. Be sure to write captions for each photo and check out our photo tips.
Learn about assistance animals
Assistance animals help people with different types of disabilities, and Link2paradise has policies that allow them in most circumstances. Learn how to support guests with assistance animals.
