Home >Customers with Disabilities
National is committed to providing a range of Adaptive Driving Devices for our customers with disabilities. Adaptive Driving Devices include hand controls, left foot accelerators, spinner knobs, and pedal extenders. Such devices are available at no additional charge.
While National will use good faith efforts to satisfy requests for vehicles with hand controls, left foot accelerators, spinner knobs, or pedal extenders, as soon as reasonably practical, we may require up to two to three business days notice for vehicles equipped with Adaptive Driving Devices depending on the location of the branch where such a vehicle is requested. However, at certain major airport locations, vehicles equipped with Adaptive Driving Devices may be available with as little as 8 or 24 hours advance notice. The foregoing timeframes are subject to delays beyond National's reasonable control.
Customers with disabilities who do not have a driver's license can still rent with National when accompanied by a surrogate driver who presents a valid driver's license. Minimum age restrictions and other normal rental qualifications apply, but there is no additional charge for the surrogate driver and the surrogate driver need not produce a credit card or otherwise be required to meet our financial underwriting requirements.

If You Wish to Rent a Lift-Equipped Van
National does not offer lift-equipped vans for rental. In many major metropolitan areas, specialty companies offer vehicles equipped with wheelchair lifts and other devices for both short-term and long-term rental. Wheelchair Getaways is one such company, and you can contact Wheelchair Getaways at www.wheelchairgetaways.com or (800) 642-2042.
