Hand controls
At selected corporate locations around Australia, cars equipped with hand controls are available at no extra charge. Hand controls are available in our Fullsize Sedan cars (Ford Falcon or similar). The hand controls are fitted to the brake and accelerator pedals via the steering column (steering wheel knob). Reservations for cars equipped with hand controls require 3 days advance reservation or notice.

One-way rentals of hand-control cars are permitted without any extra cost for the special equipment. However, certain restrictions and fees do apply to all one-way rentals. Please check for details at time of reservation.

Hand Controls are available at the following loctions:

Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth cities and airports
Coolangatta airport
Surfers Paradise

For Australia reservations: 13 30 39
For International reservations: 1800 550 067

Upon request and only at selected locations Budget offers vehicles with Hand Controls which enables drivers to accelerate or brake using a hand-controlled device. Drivers without
disabilities are able to drive the vehicle without interference from the hand controls. Please contact Budget prior to renting to organise this. Please note these vehicles are limited and subject to availability. Budget cannot provide hand controls on every
make or model of vehicle, and cannot confirm a reservation for a particular make or model of vehicle on any rental.

Please phone our Reservations Department on 1300 362 848, or use our website to quickly obtain a quote

this one may not be as practical but you can take it with you & it fits most cars with an automatic transmission.

More Details
The hand controls are designed to fit most cars with an automatic transmission. May be useful for users with limited lower limb function who wish to drive independently.
The portable hand controls may be useful to enable the driver to hire a car, test drive a new vehicle, or transport the hand controls when travelling.
The hand controls are not suitable for driver training, and are not designed to replace an existing hand control system.

No tools are required to fit the portable hand controls, and no modifications to the vehicle are required. http://www.ilcaustralia.org/home/supplier.asp?State=SA&searchdb=&Search=&MC=51&MinC=11&item=4611&supid=652
