Tourism services including services across many sectors. This proposed standard proposes to define requirements for those service providers in relation to all aspects of communication including written, verbal, digital and web-based . This standard can be used by travel agents, accommodation, restaurants, tour operators etc to ensure a more accessible and usable service by the widest range of users . It also benefits the service providers with the potential to increase sales and improve service. Older persons and people with disabilities are important user and consumer groups. Currently, their needs are not being adequately addressed when standards are made or revised. Standards that take into account the needs of these users will have much greater market relevance and help to make products and services more accessible and usable for ALL.
