Tourism and handicap

tourisme et handicap

The Tourism and Handicap label is a trademark owned by the state, filed with the INPI (National Institute of Industrial Property). It was created in 2001 by the Ministry of Tourism as part of the policy for access to holidays and integration of people with disabilities. It identifies facilities and tourist sites accessible to people with disabilities, whether visual , hearing or mental.

 

The label essentially addresses two objectives:

  • - Develop tourism adapted to disabilities
  • - Anticipate the legal requirements for accessibility

 

It gives people with disabilities or with special requirements  a reliable, objective and uniform assessment of premises, equipment and travel services.
