About the project

Handiplanet is a collaborative travel guide that allows disabled persons to organize, plan and prepare their travel thanks to accessibility feedback, insider tips from people in the same situation. This travel guide was imagined my Melina and Emmanuel as a result of a trip to Greece for which we could not find reliable accessibility information. 



Within this platform, you will find information about the accessibility of places (bars, restaurants, museums ...) according to your own mobility but also photos, feedback. The tool, in addition to offering reliable and complete information, give "Globerollers" the opportunity to get in touch with those who have already traveled, thus enabling them to better project themselves on their journey

 

In 2016 Mélina and Emmanuel wanted to go in Greece for holidays. They almost give up traveling because they couldn’t found reliable informations about accessibility according to Melina's access needs. She is moving in a wheelchair with a removable battery motor.

There is more than 36 Millions persons with a reduced mobility in Europe. These persons are physically and financially able to travel  but their access needs are different from one to another. However 80 % of them don't travel because theay don't find a reliable information they trust.

That's why information about accessibility must be directed correlated to the access needs of everyone:

The problem with existing solutions?

Informations are not updated, most of the time incomplete, scattered , partially incorrect because provided by professionals.

 

Impossible for disabled persons to picture themself traveling safely.

 

ENGLISH SUBTITLED  are available on this following Video:

 

 

What are the funds for?

We already launched a test version but not quite complete. Therefore, hundreds of disabled travelers already created an acount and shared their experience about acessibility on more than 12 countries, which is very encouraging.
