Jersey Disabled Needs

There are no worries for disabled people going on holiday to Jersey. Most of the visitor attractions, hotels and guesthouses are wheel chair friendly with facilities for the hard of hearing and visually impaired. With the exception of some older buildings, most buildings are equipped with automatic entrances, wide aisle, ramps and disabled toilets. Every effort is made to ensure that holidays for disabled people in Jersey are safe and enjoyable.

There is a Shopmobility scheme where self propelled scooters or wheel chairs can be hired to make getting around like St Helier, Durrell Wildlife and Jersey War Tunnels easier. For those who drive, there is also ample disability parking spaces allocated. Jersey is a safe and disable friendly place for visitors. Please note, UK and European Blue Badges entitle disabled drivers to park in designated areas, such as on-street parking zones and in multi-storey car parks however, they do not permit disabled drivers to park on yellow lines. Parking in public car parks is free for badge holders. Jersey as a holiday for disabled people is a safe and disable friendly place.
