By acquiring Accomable, a startup launched by two childhood friends, the rental accommodation company will list accessible places to stay all over the world
Airbnb has acquired accessible-travel startup Accomable as part of plans to improve its offering for disabled travellers.
Accomable was launched just over two years ago by childhood friends Srin Madipalli and Martyn Sibley – who both have spinal muscular atrophy – to make it easier for people to find accessible places to stay around the world. It lists properties that can cater for a range of disabilities, highlighting details such as step-free access, hoists, roll-in showers and shower chairs.
