    Wheelchair car hire

    For quite sometime now, I’ve been thinking of going on holiday abroad. The big big fly in the ointment for me is, I can’t seem to find anywhere that hires out wheelchair accessible cars in any of the cities or beach resorts in Europe, or, anywhere if I’m honest!

    Do any of you know of such a thing? I’ve seen coach tours, but they don’t appeal to me. I like to go where I want when I feel like it. Plus, if I’m unwell I don’t want to feel I’ve missed out on the only day to go somewhere.

    You could try asking Hertz about foreign hire :

    Would the person in the wheelchair be driving or a passenger? Thats something to bear in mind, when asking. Pays to research, we found ONE WAV taxi in Rhodes.

    I’m in a wheelchair and drive, but so does my husband so I could be passenger or driver.
