Following on from the success of previous Paralympic Games, especially in London, the British Paralympic team are looking forward to continued success in Brazil. Travel Places are delighted to have been appointed the official UK Authorised Ticket Reseller (ATR) for the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016, in conjunction with the BPA.

The 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro represent an exciting time for Travel Places. Utilising our key involvement in previous Paralympic Games from Sarajevo to London, Travel Places are contracted to handle the British Paralympic team, whether it is for transfers to and from their training camps or into the city of Rio de Janeiro. We will also be working with a number of UK media and sponsor groups for this event.

Travel Places were officially appointed the UK Authorised Ticket Reseller for both the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008 and the Sochi Paralympic Winter Games in 2014. As a result, our understanding of requirements from these previous Games has helped us create our travel packages for Rio 2016.

Travel Places are extremely experienced at operating in the Paralympic environment and have a very good understanding of accessibility requirements. Travel Places work closely with many professional sports and other client groups to fully understand their needs.
