Disability Discounts

Disability discounts seems to be one of our society's best kept secrets. Yet there are companies offer discounts for a variety of things. If you have a family with disabilities , this can make a real difference!

Share a discount tip ~ Disability Discounts summary

Most commonly, if you are travelling with someone in a wheelchair, places will not charge admission for one adult that is accompanying the person in the wheelchair. However, the person in the wheelchair usually pays full price

Many organizations don't advertise their discounts, so you'll have to ask, or hope that someone brings it to your attention. Don't be shy! Ask any organization that provides services to the public whether they offer a discount for people with disabilities or their escorts. As more and more companies realize how many people have special needs, discounts and other special services are being introduced regularly. You may be surprised at how many there are.

Free Movie Theatre Admissions

Check your local movie theatre for discounts.  Quite often, the theatre will provide a free admission for a caregiver if they are with a person in a wheelchair.  

In Canada, there is even an official program called Access to Entertainment to provide this benefit to people with disabilities.  Click here to read more...

The movie theatres in Canada recognize the benefit of offering a discount and see it as a smart marketing plan that brings in theatre goers.  For a slowly dying industry, that's a good thing, right?

In the US however, it is more of a hit and miss affair.

If you are in the US, I encourage you to ask your local theatre to follow Canada's example...
