Paying it forward
As a visually impaired traveler, I fully understand that the airline staff is going to be spending more time with me than the average customer. In situations where volume throughput of guests is required, such as the Skycap, consider tipping a bit more than the average guest would, it doesn’t have to be a ton – just a few extra dollars. This will not only make them more enthusiastic about helping you, but will also grease the wheels so to speak for the next disabled passenger that comes along. Consider the extra couple bucks as paying it forward to the next disabled traveler.
Wouldn’t it be great if the visually impaired community started to gain the reputation of being good tippers, and always had a positive outlook when dealing with these service specialists? It would make it better for everyone who comes after us. I have been doing this for a while, and I hope you are willing to pick up the mantle of my example. Speaking of which, book yourself a solo travel adventure to someplace you haven’t been before. If I can do it, so you can you.
