Welcome to the Wheelchair Travel Newsletter.

I’m John Morris, a triple amputee, power wheelchair user and founder of WheelchairTravel.org, the accessible travel website created to Open Your World.

Since a 2012 car accident that left me a wheelchair user, I’ve embraced traveling with a disability and have reached many milestones:

  • Visited more than 50 countries on 6 continents

  • Flown more than 1,000,000 miles to 125+ different airports

  • Stayed in 500+ hotels

Through my extensive experience traveling with a disability, I’ve built the world’s largest accessible travel website and am committed to breaking down the barriers to disability inclusion within the travel industry. With your support, I’m confident that we can build a reimagined world that is accessible to everyone.
