“Accessibility Communi­kation”

Strategies for Online and Print Media, PoS

Communikation Strategies
Why do “disabled-friendly” offers usually lead a shadowy existence in tourism marketing?

Holidaymakers with mobility impairments want to be able to book accommodations and travels via the mainstream channels. However, visiting online platforms or local travel agencies seldom leads to the desired result, because concept developers and consultants/service staff are not really familiar with the customers’ requirements.
Only by target group-oriented marketing in all media and channels you can profit from the increasing demand for accessible offers. Give the prospective customer the feeling of appreciation and understanding of his wishes.
A key success factor here is the conception and implementation of specific content.

act provides the necessary know-how. Together with your specialist departments, we develop a tailor-made strategy to make your offer attractive to everyone. In this way, you can convince the fastest-growing group of guests of the future today.
Special Knowledge PTD
Pre-contractual information requirements for travellers with mobility impairments

Many package travel providers use auxiliary constructions to evade the legal requirements. Problem:
These are apparent solutions that can become a legal boomerang.

Instead of trust and appreciation, companies are thus sending an extremely negative message.

Do it better - choose the transparent way. Offer facts instead of fake.
act explains to you what is important. We also support you in the developing of new info functions to extend your IT solutions.
