Tripseed, an innovative travel operator, is breaking new ground in the Land of Smiles. They’ve launched a range of accessible travel programs and experiences to make visiting Thailand more inclusive than ever.

Tripseed offers specially designed and exclusive tours that are tailored for elderly and disabled travellers. They’re revolutionising everyone’s options for exploring Thailand.

“We are committed to growing travel in a direction that is open and welcoming for everyone,” says Tripseed founder, Ewan Cluckie.

Tripseed’s offerings for accessible travel in Thailand go beyond the basics of labelling wheelchair-friendly accommodation. Accessibility audits have been conducted across properties, tour locations, and transportation. They’ve evaluated everything from ramp inclinations, availability of grab bars, manoeuvrability clearance, and other important aspects of accessibility.

This level of attention allows Tripseed to advise clients of the most suitable travel options for them, based on their specific needs.

Going beyond mobility considerations, Tripseed is also offering specialised guides that are trained in American Sign Language (ASL), British Sign Language (BSL), and Thai Sign Language (TSL & MSTSL), as well as guides trained to support visitors who are blind or have low vision, and are d/Deaf or hard of hearing.

Tripseed is ensuring that travellers with specific needs don’t miss out on anything when visiting Thailand. They’ve announced a brand-new selection of experiences designed to deliver accessible versions of their top-selling tours. Travellers with disabilities can now take a thrilling city tour of Bangkok or an evening street food tour in a fully electric tuk-tuk, specially outfitted with a built-in wheelchair ramp and restraint system – a first in the industry. The routes on these tours are specifically chosen to ensure travellers won’t have to navigate difficult sidewalks.

Other options include a snorkelling or diving experience alongside a Divemaster fully certified by Disabled Divers International, or a private tour through 200 acres of botanical gardens in a vehicle fully equipped for accessibility. Experiences like these are available now, exclusively through Tripseed.
