  • Description: Summary: This document is the final report of the study regarding “Mapping and Performance Check of Accessible Tourism Services in Europe”. The first objective of the study was to identify and count, as accurately as possible, those tourism services that can cater for the accessible tourism market, which includes seniors, people with disabilities, families with small children and people with various specific access requirements. Source data for the identification and calculation of accessible services was derived partly from the suppliers listed in so-called Accessibility Information Schemes (AIS), which are published databases of facts and measurements related to the accessibility of tourist venues and services in regions and countries of Europe. The AIS data set was supplemented by newly identified accessible services collected by Pantou, the European Accessible Tourism Directory, a tool which was created for this study at In total, the study has identified 313,286 accessible tourism suppliers in EU Member States. Of these, 224,036 suppliers were found in the published data from 79 Accessibility Information Schemes in 24 EU Member States. The Pantou data collection tool contributed 94,551 accessible tourism suppliers, of which 5,301 were already present in national or regional Accessibility Information Schemes. After subtracting the 5,301 “doubles”, the net total of Pantou registered suppliers is 89,250. Adding the number of AIS suppliers and Pantou suppliers together gives the total figure of: 224,036 (AIS) + 89,250 (Pantou) = 313,286 suppliers.
