Travel Without Limits, Australia’s first disability specific travel magazine, launches

Australia’s first disability specific print travel magazine has launched, targeting the 4.2m Australians living with a disability.

Travel Without Limits is aimed at the accessible tourism industry which represents $10.8bn to the Australian economy, surpassing the Chinese-inbound market of $10.4bn.

The title will be published by Bound Round, the team behind Travel With Special Needs, and has launched with partners such as Destination NSW and Blue Badge Insurance Australia.

Julie Jones, creator of website Have Wheelchair Will Travel, is the co-founder and executive editor of the title, alongside Janeece Keller.

Travel Without Limits will provide valuable advice, tips and reviews on all aspects of travel, the company said.

A recent study by travel booking platform Amadeus revealed 46% of travellers with a disability identify their greatest challenge as being a lack of essential destination information. Travel Without Limits aims to address this by informing and inspiring travellers despite any challenges they or their families may have.

“Often, the information needed to travel with confidence when you have additional needs requires specific and detailed stories,” said Jones.

“We believe these should be written by people with lived experience. So we’ve brought together contributors and partners to share stories and experiences to help you plan, prepare and feel like our readers can travel without limits.”

Travel Without Limits will be released for the first time at the Source Kids Disability Expo in Melbourne on March 29 and will also be available to read on the Travel With Special Needs website.

“We strongly believe in the need to promote accessible and inclusive travel in the mainstream media,” said Keller.

“We want to give accessible tourism the space it deserves, not merely through inclusion in mainstream media, but through its own custom publication. Travel Without Limits gives us that opportunity and we’re excited to share these stories and relevant information with our readers.”
