Looking for a size-friendly car? Sit down! You can’t judge the roominess of a car from the outside. You need to sit in the car and drive it. That’s the only way you can see if there is enough tummy room under the steering wheel, enough (or too much!) legroom and if there is enough head room for all passengers.
Traveling under any circumstance can be trying; but, plus size travel can be downright disheartening.
Challenges of Plus Size Travel
Plus size travel can be difficult for several reasons:
- Seating may be uncomfortable…or worse yet, it may not be structurally safe. (Breaking a chair in a restaurant can be really embarrassing!)
- Activities might be restricted…either by your preferences (“I don’t think I would look good doing that”) or by weight or size restrictions (“The weight limit for this ride is 250 pounds.”).
- Spontaneity is not possible…you need to do a lot of pre-planning to make sure that you will “fit” in your vacation.
But, don’t give up. Travel can be fun. And, it can be easy. You just need to plan ahead, do a little research, ask a lot of questions and don’t be afraid to step up and do what is necessary for you to have a good time.
Larger travelers are are finding that diligently following specific plus size travel tips is often the only way to be comfortable.
