Default Difficulty seeing the colours on the availability calendars on private rentals pages

Just a suggestion about the availability calendars on the private bookings pages etc.

I can hardly see the colours on the calendars, which is why I dont look at them.

Looking here for example:
loscedros7 - Apartment to Rent in Pollensa, Puerto Pollensa, South, Sandy Beach Area, Mallorca (Majorca), Spain

I can almost make out there are two different colours on the calendar but only just.

May sound daft but I have a colour blindness problem with certain colour combinations.

Looking how owners direct do the colours theirs are easy for me to see.
Pollenca, Mallorca, Spain. Holiday villas and apartments, direct from the owners.

A test is here:
Are You Color Blind?

I only see '25' there

You tube test video:
YouTube - Color Blindness test - Real !

Could the colours be changed on the calendars as a lot of people have the same colour problem and the rental pages are impossible to use if you cant see the colours.

I'm sorry you are having problems. When we first designed the system I did try it out on my sons who are both very colour-blind and they said that it was fine for them. I've only ever had one previous comment & I found that when I tested out various sets of colours there was always one set that couldn't be viewed clearly depending on the type of colour blindness the person had so I thought that we were catering for the majority of colour-blind people. However I will look at again & see what we can do.

It is only a slight problem thanks for considering a change.

I found this website with some useful information.

How to Design Web Accessible Pages for the ColorBlind : Web Design Resources Blog & Graphics Blog with Lists of Web Site Design Tools

This is fairly good, white or grey, not much colour unless a 'special offer' which I think might be Orange

Thanks !

The camera takes the photos, I just aim it

Only a slight bit of a colour problem with certain combinations of colours.
I can see most colurs OK maybe not what I think they are though.

My favorite brown shirt is actually green so my wife tells me
