A market for winning…
    Most people love travelling – age
    and disability generally don’t
    change that. What does change
    is the need for careful planning.
    Visitors with access requirements
    need to know that certain facilities
    are available – accessible parking;
    a grab rail by the toilet. They can’t
    afford to leave anything to chance.
    When you invest in general visitor
    facilities such as flat screen TVs you
    mention it – on your website, in your
    leaflet, maybe even on your Twitter
    feed. So if you have a vibrating

Visitors with access requirements need to know that certain facilities are available – accessible parking; a grab rail by the toilet. They can’t afford to leave anything to chance. When you invest in general visitor facilities such as flat screen TVs you mention it – on your website, in your leaflet, maybe even on your Twitter feed. So if you have a vibrating pillow alarm clock or a hearing loop system, it makes sense to promote Bottom Line them too.
