The German travel agency Dicke Reisen specialises in planning travel arrangements for overweight people. It was created by a curvy lady fed up of encountering inconveniences due to her weight when travelling. The agency caters for customers by offering special discounts to fly in business class (where seats are larger), suggesting hotels with larger beds and proposing activities that are not too physically demanding.
