We will confirm a request for hand controls within 48 hours if the request is made between noon Sunday through noon Friday. The failure to provide us with a timely request for hand controls may mean that we cannot fulfill your request if hand controls, trained personnel to install the hand controls, or vehicles suitable for installation of hand controls, are not readily available due to the untimely request. If you intend to cancel your reservation, we request that you contact us so that we may remove the hand controls following your cancellation.
At the time of a request for hand controls, in order to more readily accommodate you, please advise us whether the hand controls should be installed on the left side, or the right side, of the steering wheel.
Hand controls can only be installed in specific car models, as follows:
We recommend that individuals with disabilities who use a wheel chair and who are traveling alone request a 2-door vehicle. We have found, through experience, that such customers can more easily put the wheel chair in the rear seat in a 2-door vehicle, as compared to doing so in a 4-door.

NKT-Travel Terms and Conditions:
Sometimes additional Fees will be charged (e.g., “upgrade to a bigger car”, “underage fee”, or “drop-off charges”, or others). Please be aware, that these Fees are Taxable and the rental car company adds the regular Taxes on top of the agreed Fees.
Since these Fees are added after our reservation confirmation — at pick-up — we cannot predict or anticipate how much this will be in total. We know exactly how much the rental will be before these fees and taxes get added — and we can only confirm this amount.
Important Information for Mileage Program Customers: Our Rates are specially negotiated Rates. Frequent Flyer Credit may not be applicable on “Tour Package Rates” (please check with your Airline for details).
