Georgie used to feel stressed about travel but now has her preparations sorted and is ready to go!

LEGS Participants' experiences of travel
Different airlines treat wheelchair storage differently.

Take 1 big suitcase for 2 so you can also push the wheelchair.
Gatwick and Heathrow have simulators. Try them and see if you can get in and out of seats.
Rail travel can be better than flying. One participant went from New York to Niagara by train!
By law, airports must be accessible.
