Tourism & handicap
A Quality label for people with disabilities
As part of its policy for making holidays and leisure activities more accessible for people with disabilities, the Secretary of State for Tourism has implemented a “quality” label for the accommodation of disabled people, in partnership with tourist professionals and associations working on behalf of the disabled.
The objective of this tourist label is
* to provide reliable, descriptive and objective information on the accessibility to its tourist sites and facilities, taking all varieties of handicap into account.
* to develop a suitable tourist offer that forms part of the more general purpose offer.
* to provide a competitive advantage to those tourist professionals who subscribe to the approach.
This label is designed for customers with special needs so that they can receive reliable information on the accessibility of leisure and holiday venues, for all 4 types of disabilities.
The label may be granted for one, two, three or four disabilities (motor, mental, visual, auditory). Each disability is represented by a particular pictogram:
The label is granted for a period of five years, renewable by a contract rider after the reception criteria and accessibility have been verified.
