Travel Companions

Flying Wheels Travel is committed to our mission of opening the world of travel to people with a disability, chronic illness or the mature traveler. As part of our effort to fulfill this mission, we understand that not everyone has someone to travel with him or her or your care partner may want an opportunity to relax as well. We are able to recommend experienced travel companions who are able to assist you while traveling, provide a break to the person that cares for you or provide additional support to your care partner. We can arrange travel companions for individual travel, part of a group travel opportunity or to assist a single traveler. Please contact us to arrange for a travel companion.
