Airbnb buys Accomable to support travellers with disabilities
Airbnb, an online marketplace and hospitality service company has bought a business called Accomable.
Accomable is a startup company that helps to find disabled accessible hotels, vacation rentals and apartments.
Accomable was started in 2015 by two friends with spinal muscular atrophy.
The idea is to make travel and adventure easier for travellers with disabilities.
Along with buying Accomable, Airbnb has also added new accessible features to its website.
Like a checklist for owners to give information and detailed photos if they have step-free entry to rooms and doorways wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs.
