    It'll be best to get a recommendation from someone. Do you know someone that has used one?

    I believe the 2 best criteria for selecting an agent or specialist are:

    1. Someone that makes themselves accessible at any time to research/plan & book travel. Having an agent that is generally not accessible leads to unanswered questions and unnecessary confusion.

    2. Someone with credibility and honesty. Having an agent that can say "been there, done that" and that can prove it is re-assuring. Having an agent that is looking out for your best interests is important. As an example, if one were to refer a person to the internet to book air travel as it is less expensive than going thru a travel agency, then I would consider the agent is looking out for my best interests. The same goes for an agent that provides options or alternatives.

    IMHO.

    Travel agents from around the world that provide specialized services to people with with disabilities. There are many different types of travel agents. You may want to find a "full service agent" that can help you with your flight, hotel, accessible van rental, and anything else you may need. Or if you are willing and able to make those arrangements yourself then you can use a specialized travel agent for a specific trip to Europe, Australia, African Safari's or a disability cruise specialist. We hope this site will assist you in researching the different options that all the agencies offer.

    I suggest the following places:

    NJP/Bagdogra
    Gangtok
    Ravangla
    Pelling
    Yusom
    Hee Bermiok
    Barsey
    Kaluk

    By the way, as you are traveling there in October it will be the off season. December 24 to January 5 is the high season for all over India.
