Special Needs at Sea Joins OSSN

Special Needs at Sea, a one-stop source for mobility aides, oxygen and other equipment for travelers with disabilities, has joined the Outside Sales Support Network (OSSN), a travel industry association for independent and home-based sellers of travel.

According to Andrew Garnett, founder and CEO of Special Needs at Sea, as an Affiliated Supplier to OSSN, Special Needs at Sea will help OSSN’s network of 7,800 travel agents access the expanding niche market of travelers with disabilities by providing information and direct access to a full range of power chairs, scooters, oxygen cylinders, audio aides and other assist equipment to ensure safe, enjoyable travel for everyone.

“We look forward to opening the door to additional revenue opportunities for our new travel partners within the independent and home-based channels served by OSSN,” said Garnett. “Travelers with disabilities represent a fast-growing market segment with 13.6 billion persons taking an estimated 68 million trips a year.”

OSSN President Gary Fee said, "OSSN welcomes such a needed company within our industry. This special niche provider aids sellers of travel who cater to this very special and lucrative market."
