Airbnb releases 21 new accessibility filters for disabled travelers

In order to make travelling more accessible and comfortable for people with disabilities, Airbnb has released new accessibility filters.

Airbnb is a global travel community that offers short time lodging to people who do not wish to stay in hotels when they travel.

The company has released 21 new accessibility filters across its search platform.

The new filters will allow the people with disabilities to find accommodations that are accessible. The filters will be compatible for the worldwide travel features of Airbnb.

People with disabilities can now use the filters to look for specific features in an accommodation as per their accessibility needs.

Rooms without stairs, wide doorways or entry gates for wheelchair users, lifts, accessible toilets, and bathrooms are some of the new filters. These can provide more information to disabled people about a particular listing on the Airbnb platform.

The company is hoping to make travelling easier for people with disabilities all across the world.
