After the great success of the London 2012 Olympics, the Paralympic Games are just about to start (29 Aug - 9 Sept), with tickets already almost sold out for most events.
Many Home Base Holidays members arranged home exchanges during the Olympics and no doubt a number are already on home swaps in London, ready to attend the Paralympics. The organisers have done an admirable job in making venues accessible to all, and detailed information is available on accessible public transport in London.
To find the most suitable homes:
When browsing exchange offers, choose 'Show more options'; tick the box beside 'Disabled Access/Facilities'. Make any other choices you want to limit your search results. All the home exchange listing summaries will show the small wheelchair symbol.
The actual facilities in each home will vary but, at a minimum, any home displaying the wheelchair symbol should be wheelchair accessible. Check for further information on facilities available in members' detailed descriptions. Then, once you join Home Base Holidays, you will be able to contact members whose homes look most suitable. Provide information in your own home exchange offer, and in the messages you send, about any particular needs you have.
Members whose homes have been specially adapted for particular disabilities will indicate this in their exchange offers. Members will also share information on past exchanges with those who had special needs. In one listing (home in photo):
