Wheel the World is an accessibility travel platform from Chile for people with special needs. Lack of accurate information about accessibility holds back more than 500 million potential travellers with disabilities. Users detail their needs in profiles, then search for destinations and travel products with specific accessibility information. Using automated emails and system integration, the Wheel the World service provides users, as well as hotel and tour operators, with all the information required to satisfy traveller needs.
