Abstract [Abstrakt]:
Tourism for the disabled is starting to develop rapidly and currently it does not only constitute an attractive form of spending free time, however, it is mainly a form of rehabilitation or social activation. Disabled people have the right and they are willing to undertake the act of travelling like the rest of society. This particular group of people may be more prone to social exclusion and inequality and their rights and voices are often less heard in the mainstream of tourism industry. The aim of this paper is to present the situation of people with disabilities, who are often socially disadvantaged and discriminated. The article presents the results obtained from the survey and a review of statistical data and literature.
