Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are they a private firm please?
That is ok, we can keep this online.
Thank you. Then yes they can impose a ban.
As long as it is not discriminatory on the grounds of race, colour, religion, age etc they can stop travel.
But if its because you have a disability then again they may be acting illegally.
So depending on the grounds they may be able to stop travel
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I see. But that in itself is not discriminatory. It can only be on the grounds of disability, sex, race, religion, age etc.You could get the Equality Commission to investigate this for you.

Does that clarify?
If they have stopped you because of a disability, then this can be illegal.
Definition of disability under the Equality Act 2010. You're disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a 'substantial' and 'long-term' negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.
If it comes under this then they can't discriminate against you.
You can see detailed guidance on that meaning at:
Potentially yes, this is a disability and if they ban you this could be a contravention under the Equality Act.
But you should contact the Equality Commission and they should be able to prosecute, reverse the decision and give you the compensation you rightly deserve as a result of their behaviour.
