The idea for tripility arose around five years ago when looking at holidays abroad, the issue being that my girlfriend has to use a wheelchair for most journeys other than for short walks of 50 metres or less. We wanted to book accommodation via the normal online routes and travel agents but there was limited information on what was suitable for my girlfriend’s needs. There are always speciality lodgings available but why should we be restricted to those? That’s when the idea of tripility came about; we decided that there should be a user focused site that offers reviews of holiday accommodation and destinations in the UK and abroad. Whilst the site originally centred solely on access for those with disabilities, we decided it could also benefit people who have specific dietary requirements or families with young children who require access information too. The site has been in development for the last year and will soon be launching so we thought it was about time to generate some interest and start building a community with people who have the same interests as us. We also want feedback on the site when it is launched as we know it will not be perfect from the start, so please get in touch via our site or on this blog and other social media sites if you have any helpful suggestions to give us a push in the right direction. We will be looking for bloggers who would like to a guest post on the site, so if you have useful insights into holidaying in the UK or abroad then please get in touch!
