The Quingo team recently read that some large UK firms have undertaken urgent measures to improve their services for people with disabilities. The news follows a BBC London investigation that exposed several failures in this area.
Taking measures to improve accessibility
As part of the investigation, a blind person and a wheelchair user wore secret cameras to document cafes without ramps, minicab drivers that refused to accept guide dogs and train station staff not present when assistance was required. More than 100 restaurants are now being audited for their accessibility.
As the closing date approaches, the Quingo team want to remind you to vote for the “Best Limited Mobility/Accessible Travel Provider” award at the forthcoming Silver Travel awards, sponsored by Quingo.
Silver Travel Awards
The Silver Travel Awards, in conjunction with Silver Travel Advisor, celebrate businesses and attractions that go the extra mile to meet the needs of the mature travel market.
The awards ceremony will take place on the 4th June 2015 at the Natural History Museum in London and the awards will be announced and presented by former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond.
The Quingo team want to make sure you know how to get the most out of your scooter’s battery and make it last as long as possible when you are out and about.
What is the maximum range of my Quingo?
Quingo scooters are designed to meet the needs of our users, so our scooters last as long as possible when on the go. The size of your model will affect the maximum range. This is because bigger models such as the Toura and the Vitess have a larger batteries.
