Europcar is the first car rental company to offer wheelchair accessible vehicles, providing a much needed transport solution for people with a disability. The offering is part of an Australian first partnership between Europcar and Automobility Pty Ltd, involving the introduction of Kia Grand Carnival wheelchair accessible vehicles in Europcar's rental fleet.

The introduction of this unique type of vehicle meets one of Europcar's key promises: to provide a range of travel solutions for customers during every stage of their life.

Available at selected locations.

Customised Vehicle

• Easy to use - the wheelchair access conversion is quick and easy to use with limited instruction required.

• Comfort - the vehicle is comfortable for all occupants, and the person who uses the wheelchair.
