Accomable has launched a new partnership with UK-based Fish Insurance which could see people with disabilities knock as much as 15% off their travel insurance.
The firms say customers who book through Accomable – dubbed the ‘Airbnb for disabled people’ – will be able to access specialist travel insurance because of the partnership.
The move is part of Accomable’s long-term aim to become a one-stop shop for all aspects of accessible travel.
Accomable chief executive and co-founder Srin Madipalli, said: “In our experience, finding the right travel insurance is one of the biggest sources of worry for our customers, particularly if they are travelling abroad with expensive and specialist mobility equipment.
“That’s why we’re thrilled to be partnering with Fish Insurance. We only ever recommend providers we can trust, and many of our team already use Fish Insurance for their own travel insurance and additional equipment cover.”
Fish Insurance offers cover to people with pre-existing medical conditions, mobility difficulties and disabilities.
According to disability charity Scope, 26% of disable adults feel they have been charged more for insurance or denied cover completely because of their disability.
Fish Insurance Managing Director John Garrard said: “Our company was built to ensure those with disabilities could access the insurance they need at a fair price.
“We look forward to helping Accomable customers travel more and worry less.”
