#AccessibleFife Top Tips

Mon 7 Mar 16

Following our Accessible Tourism Workshop held back in January, we aim to establish Fife as an Accessible Tourism Destination.

The accessible tourism market has grown significantly over the last few years, with many businesses who cater for this market seeing higher occupancy rates and development of a loyal customer base who keep returning.

Below we have written up some top tips to help your business cater for the accessible tourism market.
