NEW DELHI: In a first, one of India's largest travel companies has launched tour packages for the physically challenged. Cox & Kings has come out with "Enable India" to make tourism "more inclusive and accessible" for people with disabilities across mobility (wheelchairs), hearing, speech and vision impairment.

Debolin Sen, the head of Enable Travel, an "accessible holiday initiative", said: "Enable Travel is a long-term commitment to make travel easy and hassle free in India and to empower each and every individual to celebrate their love for travel. Through this initiative, we are trying to address various barriers like inaccessible travel information, lack of transportation and disabled-friendly hotel rooms that prevent people from travelling. Each of the itineraries catering to inbound and domestic tourists has been thoughtfully curated, ensuring the long-held dream of a seamless travel experience isn't hampered."
