A car for every driverWe want car hire to be accessible to every driver, that's why we offer vehicle solutions for disabled drivers in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
In Central Europe we partner with Paravan to supply a fleet of VW Paravan Maxi Caddy vehicles. In Britain hand controls are fitted to a selection of our rental-car fleet free of charge – the system includes hand-operated brake and accelerator controls and a steering ball.
Contact our reservations team to book your car fitted with hand controls in the UK or a Paravan in Switzerland, Germany or Austria.
Driving with hand controlsAvis uses Lynx hand controls in the UK to transform our vehicles for disabled drivers. This control adapts the brake and the accelerator pedal of an automatic car to hand operation. It's used by drivers with a lower limb disability but with upper-body function, including hand and finger dexterity.
A steering ball (steering wheel aid) is also included in the set-up; this is compatible for use with cars fitted with a driver airbag. Panoramic mirrors are also available on request.
The VW Paravan Caddy MaxiThe Volkswagen Caddy Maxi includes satellite navigation and the parking system "Park Distance Control". It always guarantees a smooth drive thanks to an array of practical functions.
The VW Caddy Maxi can be used by six people. The vehicle offers enough space to transport one wheelchair user and five more people and it's especially suitable for families. The Paravan also comes in handy for plenty of other occasions.
