Disabled Options for Brisbane Airport Car Rental


Hertz can provide cars equipped with hand controls at Brisbane BNE Airport. These are available in standard Sedan cars and they are fitted to the brake and accelerator pedals via the steering column. 3 days’ notice is required to reserve a vehicle with hand controls. All depots have designated accessible parking. A renter who is blind or otherwise physically challenged and cannot drive themselves may provide a licensed driver to drive the car in the place of the renter- you must advise Hertz of this when renting and complete an Additional Driver Agreement Form.

If you notify Avis in advance, they will do what they can to accommodate a disability. Although they have no vehicles specifically fitted for wheelchairs, they can remove seats from a van to allow a customer-supplied stowaway device to be fitted.
