Europcar UK Provides Lynx Hand Controls for Customers

Europcar is now offering Lynx Hand Controls on automatic vehicles to customers with lower body disabilities.

Lynx Hand Controls are suitable for individuals who have full upper body function and good hand dexterity. The handsets offer fully interchangeable hand control that fits more than 95% of automatic cars.

Customers can order the sets, free of charge, at the point of booking and once suitability has been confirmed, the hand controls will be fitted.

The Lynx Hand Controls will only be available on automatic vehicles and customers are required to reserve the controls 48 hours prior to their rental. A representative will explain the controls and operation to the customer, ensuring they can drive with confidence before they set off.

“Europcar is committed to helping all our customers to keep moving throughout London 2012,” said Europcar UK Group Managing Director Ken McCall. “Vehicle rentals offer customers a convenient and cost-effective solution, which caters to their specialist needs.”
