France Disabled Guide
France Disabled Guide - Car Hire France
Disabled people will not find France a very friendly country. Actually the country is not well furnished with disabled equipments. Lack of lifts in the public places and budget hotels often leave the disabled people in the lurch. The streets of Cobblestone are terrible to steer in a wheelchair. The metro of Paris , most of which was built decades ago, is hopeless for the disabled people. But disabled people wanting to go on a trip to France can defeat these troubles.
The government at present has taken some primary steps to encourage tourism for the disabled. They have enhanced the circumstances for disabled people by making the national Tourism ET Handicap rating. This categorization is handed to sites, hotels and restaurants which meet strict prerequisites and measures. The SNCF Accessibility can be contacted for information (French only) for travelers who have sight and hearing impairments.
Many museums and art centre can be accessed by disabled people with the help of ramps and other wide-ranging access schemes. The Ministry of Culture has issued a guidebook for cultural institutions to notify them on queries of accessibility.
Rail is perhaps the most suitable type of travel for disabled travelers in France . SNCF provides with wheelchair compartments on all (TGV) fast trains. A disabled person can also find a Metro guide here.
In Paris and in many other cities, public conveyance has seats which are reserved for disabled passengers. Taxi drivers are compelled to take passengers with wheelchairs and to assist them to get in and out of the fomites.
Regrettably, budget hotels and restaurants of France are by and large ill-equipped for disabled visitants. Very few reachable bathrooms can be seen in the one-to two-star range.
Attempts are taken up in France to receive disabled persons. Disabled visitants will find amenities in new and repaired accommodation, public transportation, restrooms and restaurants.
The catalog 'Paris-Ile-de-France for Everyone' which is available in French and English for a mere payment of €9, and accessible at most Parisian tourist offices provides a list of accessible hotels, sites, and restaurants, and also gives valuable tips. As soon as a disabled person lands in the airport of France cars from cheap car rental in France will take them to the country and also to their accommodation. Disabled people can now have fun and can also visit places of beauty in France by hiring a car from car hire in France.
