    Well done Debbie for being so brave and a big thumbs up to Jet2.
    Never imagined you would be able to take all that gear with you.
    You've encouraged me to look again at going away .
    Looking forward to hearing where you are.
    Hope you're having a great holiday and wishing you a safe and uneventful journey home!

    Hi Debbie,

    Thanks for posting this as it will give confidence to others wishing to go further afield. I know you said the package was booked through Jet2 holidays and I would hope they offer a similar experience if just booking flights.

    Sounds ideal Debbie and lovely to get away at this time of the year.

    All credit to Jet2 for making journey as stress-free as possible and big brownie points for not whacking on a levy for the WAV!

    If you want to name the hotel (maybe when you're at home for security reasons), feel free as it's not often a hotel is genuinely wheelchair friendly, not to mention having a pool hoist

    Enjoy the rest of your hols and hope your return journey goes smoothly.

    I'm glad you went along with your hubby's suggestion - win win situation !!

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Everyone,
    I thought long and hard about posting this as I know many of us are unable to travel or get out and about. However,I thought it might help someone.

    We are currently abroad and I was very anxious about the journey as it is the first time I have flown since I became unable to walk or transfer without assistance. My hubby persuaded me to go for it and I thought he needed a holiday ! We had several conversations with Jet 2 holidays who assured us everything was in place. They allowed me to bring my scooter, wheelchair and walker, which I need to help me transfer at no cost. I was taken to my seat on the plane in a wheelchair where I was able to shuffle across. I had the same level of care in the resort and we had a WAV transfer provided , at no extra cost .

    We had booked a wheelchair friendly hotel and it certainly is. The rooms have enough space for my wheelchair and the wetroom has lots of rails and raised seats. There is a hoist to the pool ,ramps and raised sunloungers and tables.

    I felt very vulnerable travelling as , obviously you are reliant on other people. I am not home yet so the return journey easily could go pear shaped! I have been impressed with the level of care and thoughtfulness.

    Again I apologise for the thread but if anyone wants anymore details please PM me.
    Love Debbie x
