Abstract


  • Peer-to-peer accommodation networks have been accused of not offering accommodation suitable for people with disabilities, both by commercial competitors who are obliged to comply with regulations regarding this, and by groups protecting the interests of people with disabilities. This chapter investigates the regulations commercial providers are required to comply with, and the efforts made by peer-to-peer networks to accommodate these groups. It also explores needs of travelers with disabilities and ask which tourism accommodation model might be best placed to cater to this market in the long term.
