Hi All

We do not own hand controls as my husband is working toward getting back on the road. We are super new to how this all works and I am wondering if anyone travels places WITH their hand controls and uses them on rental cars?

We are hoping to go back to Italy and are wondering if we CAN bring some hand controls and if they work on all standard cars? Also - are there different insurances required if used on a rental vehicle?

Any advice or experiences please let us know

    I don't know about international travel, but within the United States car rentals have hand controls, they just need advance notice to have them installed properly. I like to call a day or two in advance just to make sure they have the hand controls so I don't end up in a bind or waiting for the proper installation. There's no extra fees for the hand controls and car renters insurance is always an option, but it should be a standard rate.

    Thank you! This is so helpful. My husband has always wanted to rent a car when we go away so this makes it easier. If anyone else has any insight on internationally, please comment below as well!- Brooke
