    CAR HIRE WITH HAND CONTROLS INFORMATION REQ, ADVICE PLS

    I am hoping to visit england from NI, but would like to fly drive rather than pay the excessive car ferry fares and the driving time is difficult for me. Does anyone know of a rental firm that hires out cars with hand controls. I know its a long shot but worth a try. thanks peops.

    Car hire for disabled drivers Posted by Rob White on May 28th, 2008In Our … Car hire for disabled drivers Posted by Rob White on May 28th, 2008In Our service and productsWe had a question yesterday on the blog asking about how we cater for disabled drivers in the UK, so I thought I’d write to provide some clarity on this policy. Under the Disability Discrimination Act it is our duty to ensure that we make the appropriate modifications to our vehicles that would allow a disabled person to drive them. In the UK we do this by fitting our cars with Lynx Hand Controls. They adapt the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic car to enable these functions to be operated by hand, allowing drivers with lower limb disability but normal upper body function to drive the car.These controls will be fitted for free so to ensure that disabled drivers are fairly catered for. We simply require a couple of days’ notice to ensure we have supply of the controls and so that we have adequate time to fit them. To request a vehicle with Lynx Hand Controls fitted I would recommend calling the reservation centre on 08445 81 81 81. Alternatively, you can call the rental office directly to make this request after making your booking.
