Car and campervan hire

Many car hire and campervan companies offer seniors discounts.  These discounts vary dependant on your needs and destination, so it is best to get in contact with the company’s reservation department when you are planning your trip.  When you call ensure you ask for the best price of the day as there are often better deals available than seniors travel deals.

Car Hire

Budget Rent a Car offers a 5% discount to Senior Card holders.

Europcar Despite the name, Europecar offers car hire all around the world.  They often have great deals like reduced liability on excess for Senior Card holders for Australian car hire.  International specials include value-add options like free GPS (very handy indeed) as well as great ad-hoc specials.

CarRentals.com is an American website that has great rates, particularly for the USA.  They do really good on-way drop off rates.  The other thing we like is that you don’t need to give your credit card number until you pick up the car in most instances.
