With an aim to make Goa a fully accessible destination and address different mobility issues of tourists, Enable Travel, has partnered with Ezy Mov, India’s first wheelchair taxi service, to provide accessible guided tours in the state. Debolin Sen, Head, Enable Travel, Shama Noorani, Enable Travel expert, along with Bennet D’cunha, Co-Founder & CEO of Ezy Mov announced their partnership in their first joint effort to make travel barrier-free in Goa.
Speaking about the partnership, Debolin Sen, Head, Enable Travel said, “Goa serves as one of the most popular and preferred travel destinations in India for both domestic and international tourists. However, due to lack of transport facilities available, people with mobility issues including elderly travellers are unable to experience a destination in its broadest sense. To ensure barrier-free travel and enhance transportation within a destination, we have partnered with Ezy Mov who are experienced to address this need. We are very proud to be continuing our commitment to make travel easy and hassle-free in India and working with like-minded partners to create an inclusive and accessible travel environment.”
Speaking on the partnership, Bennet D’cunha – CEO, Ezy Mov said “Our mission is to position India as the leading country with regards to accessible tourism. What better place to start the journey than Goa – the premier holiday destination of our country. Moreover, the public infrastructure in Goa currently is more accessible than compared to other states. Ezy Mov and Enable Travel are the first movers in the accessible transportation and travel space in our country. Hence, we share the common vision of providing world-class end to end accessible assistance to our esteemed customers travelling from all over the world into India and Goa in particular. The coming together of both these companies will give the much-needed fillip & boost to the accessible tourism market in India. This service will also be available for the local population to meet their healthcare & social needs.”

Enable Travel’s award-winning campaign #CanDo has successfully inspired many disabled and able-bodied to change their mindsets and bring about a positive impact on disability. It has been carrying out various activations across cities with ‘Travel Tales’ and ‘Enable Experiences’, events which have been organised to encourage the disabled to come out of their homes and bring alive the community that doesn’t get the chance to meet so often to converge and share their travel stories and life experiences with the world. The travel brand has been working with various travel providers, hotels, transport companies and disabled experts to create a seamless travel experience for people with disabilities as well as for senior citizens.
