label tourisme et handicap

The Tourist Office of Nyons has been “Tourism and Disabilities” approved in June 2015 (for the Nyons tourist board).

It has validated the four deficiencies demanded by the label: motor, visual, cerebral and auditive disabilities.

The Tourist Office commits to implement the “Approved site engagement chart” by guaranteeing the reception and permanent preservation of the disabled access standards of the site.

The Tourist Office proposes guided tours, accommodations or practical information adapted to the handicapped that could be useful to you to organize your future vacation in the Nyons area. 

What does the “Tourism and Disabilities” label mean?

This label is a solution for the handicapped who wants to choose in total freedom the perfect destination and activities for their future vacation.  It ensures an effective reception adapted to the essential needs of the handicapped. 

This label, what for?

For the disabled tourists, the label is the proof of the tangible engagement of the infrastructure manager in favor of the disabled access standards along with the guarantee of an effective reception adapted to the handicapped. 

How does the label work?

The label can be granted for two, three or four deficiency groups: motor, visual, auditive and cerebral. The pictogram that corresponds to the disability in question is affixed next to the “Tourism and Disabilities” logo. The label is granted for 5 years maximum. It can be renewed by additional clause only after verifying that the disabled access standards and reception criteria are maintained.
