Airbnb has released 21 new accessibility filters across the platform that make it easier for disabled guests to find accessible travel accommodation worldwide.

The new filters allow Airbnb guests to search for listings with specific features, including step-free entry to rooms, entryways that are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, and more.

Previously, guests on Airbnb were only able to search for ‘‘wheelchair accessible’ listings, which did not always meet travelers' individual needs, reported.

“With these new filters, we are making it easier for everyone to share their adapted homes with disabled travelers around the world. Our mission is to enable anyone to travel anywhere, regardless of disability,” said Srin Madipalli, Accessibility Product and Program Manager at Airbnb.

Airbnb will be working closely with its community of hosts and guests to ensure the new filters offer information which is as useful and accurate as possible, with the aim to improve and expand the filters to ensure they support as many travelers as possible.
