Travelers Needing Special Assistance

Such participants, however, should be aware that the Americans with Disabilities Act is inapplicable outside of the United States and facilities outside the United States for disabled individuals are limited. It is strongly recommended that persons requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of and totally responsible for providing the assistance. Neither Jeanie’s Journeys nor its personnel, nor its suppliers, may physically lift or assist clients into transportation vehicles. If a traveler thinks he or she might need assistance during a trip, he or she should call Jeanie’s Journeys to determine what assistance might reasonably be given. Jeanie’s Journeys cannot provide special individual assistance to tour members with special needs for walking, dining, airport assistance or other routine activities.
