hey everyone 

wondering if everyone could comment about how and where they rent cars or vans with a power chair? Do you have a specific company you know of that rents vans? Or have you found success with a national car rental brand helping you find an accessible vehicle 

comment below!

    Is the person in the power chair driving or the passenger? There are multiple places around me who rent vans to passengers in a wheelchair but I don't think for drivers. Heres the place I use:

    Love getting new info.
    I found a wheelchair accessibility van when we went to Hawaii (Kauai) it was 1 of literally 2 vans you could rent on the whole island and it broke down a couple times, in some places they are really hard to find!
