My partner will be 75 years old during next year. I have been told that it will be impossible to hire a car or camper van at that age. We are thinking of flying to towns or areas, and would like to rent a unit and hire a car or hire a camper van for the holiday. Does anyone know if this is true and if so, what a solution might be. Thanks Jan Perth WA
the age restrictions that Australian car rental companies seem to be concerned with is usually too young drivers. For example if you go to a car rental comparison site like carhiresearch.com.au you have the option of selecting an age below 25 or simply 25+. There is no mention of a senior age limit.
Still I'd try and contact the company you think of using directly and check what their policies are, I guess these will vary. about 5 years ago
