WTW is selling experiences to Chileans and Californians with disabilities, and their companions. They are mainly families or friends who one of them has a physical or cognitive disability. We are starting our traction in Chile and North California, but the goal is then expand to all North America and Europe.

  • ¿Por qué estamos haciendo esto?

    Historically, tourism industry haven’t considered travelers with disabilities in the design of their products and services. In the past 10 years, this has been changing as people with disabilities have been traveling more and more and having more active lives. Thus, the global travel market for disabled people is growing at a fast pace (annual growth of 17%). Still, no tourism company has the credibility to offer recreational and tourist activities that are accessible for the disabled.
