Car Hire for 78 year old

Hey. I hope you can all help me. I'm visiting Brisbane for a month in June/July 2017. We are looking for car hire for my granddad who is driving? Can anyone recommend a local company in Brisbane or anyone else?

Start with www.vroomvroomvroom.com.au

Hertz seems to be the only hire company that mentions maximum/older age when hiring the car - check the T&Cs to be double sure.

I hire cars regularly from a number of different companies and the only question pertaining to age is whether or not I am over 25.

I'm off to Brisbane today and getting a car through Budget for about $20 a day including all the extras.

Vroom vroom vroom is a good website for research but I always then check with the individual company and often get a better deal. For a long term rental, I would definitely discuss with the company direct and negotiate a rate.

Definitely have a look at Budget. And, yes, they ask if you are over 25! As you may know already, Budget and Avis are part of the same large international group.

We've used them often when visiting Australia and have never had any problems.
