Global Access Hotel Accreditation
The Global Access Award Scheme accreditation is designed to advise customers who may have extra accessible requirements in hotels, such as the disabled or elderly, to help them choose a hotel suitable for their needs.
The scheme has evolved to be much more simple and easier to understand than the previous 5 tier system, with more basic but effective and clear access information.
GAAS Accreditation is achieved by business' that have provided GAAS with a certain level of access information. Each business' featured must have some accessible facilities and therefore cannot become GAAS Accredited unless there are certain features to help disabled and impaired guests. i.e. It is very simple for hotels and they must also provide some access photographs to corroborate the information they have supplied, which also gives the consumer piece of mind.
