Due to AITCAPs sponsors they have very kindly made a limited number of subsidised free places available to travellers with disabilities and their travelling companions and / or their carers.

So whilst international travel (indeed any travel) can be very challenging and at times impossible with ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, MCS etc if you are able to consider travel to the Asia Pacific, live in the Asia Pacific or if keeping the essence of international travel dreams alive is not too painful, then please apply here.

With family and friends in Singapore, Australia and South Korea I’ve yet to visit, I’m looking forward to listening in. It is a conference that is most definitely needed in our travel world both pre and post pandemic!
