Travel

  • Traveleyes, is a leading organisation offering worldwide adventures for blind and sighted travellers. Each blind or visually impaired traveller is paired with a sighted traveller, for each day of the vacation. In return for being the eyes for blind travellers, the sighted travellers receive a discount of their trips, subsidised entirely by Traveleyes. This means that blind travellers don’t pay any more for accessible travel, and benefit from one on one guiding for the whole trip as well as live audio description.
