Self-drive rental adapted minibuses (‘vans’)
Our self-drive rental minibuses (vans) are late-model French built Renault ‘Masters’ that will carry up to 8 persons including up to two in wheelchairs. All are diesel and are left hand manual (stick shift).
They give around 30
miles per gallon (diesel in the UK is costing around £5.50p UK pounds per gallon
– appr $7.50c US dollars) All vans are fitted with fully automatic RICON
internal or underfloor wheelchair lift, capable of lifting some 350kgs (760
pounds). Wheelchairs are secured using a proven system of four hooked tie-downs
which lock into floor tracking, with a double inertia reel belt for the
wheelchair-user. Please note, the driving controls are not adapted and can only
be driven by an able-bodied driver.
All minivans have stereo radio/CD, a UK road map, accessible ‘loo’ key, portable kerb ramp, 12v cold box, tyre inflator and first aid kit. They are covered by RAC breakdown rescue service and carry a disabled sticker in the windscreen. Hirers are advised to bring their own Disabled Persons Badge If not collecting from our depot, we can meet clients in the cruise port or airport arrival hall and escort them to the vehicle where full instruction is given on the vehicle controls and wheelchair lifting and securing apparatus. Following the signing of a rental agreement, balance of payment and confirmation of the return arrangements, the client is free to explore the rest of England, or Ireland or even further a field with limitations.
