The Visual Impaired Tourist: Facilitators and Inhibitors in Choosing Tourist Destinations

This paper aims to understand what factors influence leisure travel destination choice for the visually impaired. A qualitative approach using in-depth interviews with three different groups preliminarily found that acquired blinds have more constraints than congenital or low vision. The origin of blindness affects their well-being and how they travel.
