Wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV)
Complimentary wheelchair accessible Renault Kangoo.
When booking your holiday at Luz do Sol you will have the use of an adapted courtesy wheelchair accessible vehicle as a gesture of goodwill during your stay.
Luz do sol has 2 wheelchair adapted Renault Kangoos which have Portuguese registration. We do not have a license to hire cars but we are allowed to offer these wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) for complimentary use during your holiday. One WAV is 4 seats plus wheelchair and the other has 3 seats plus wheelchair. This second wheelchair accessible vehicle is there as a back up, so only one WAV per booking. However when the group has more than 1 wheelchair user exceptions are made.
The cars in Portugal (including wheelchair accessible vehicles) are insured rather than the driver.
Please bear in mind that our WAVs are right hand drive (like the UK) and automatic. In Portugal cars are normally left-hand drive, so it’s useful to have a driver with experience driving their UK cars abroad.
If you have a disability parking badge make sure to bring it so you can put it on our wheelchair accessible vehicle.
On your arrival and departure at Faro airport we will arrange an airport transfer to the villa in a wheelchair accessible vehicle. This service is also complimentary which will take the stress out of the last part of your journey only a short drive of 15 minutes to Luz do Sol.
The airport transfer service WAVs are equipped with specially customized vehicles to accommodate passengers with total or partial limitations, with ramps and clamp and friendly staff.
Once you arrive at Luz do Sol, you will have the use of one of the Renault Kangoo wheelchair accessible vehicles for the duration of your stay.
On the day of your departure you will be collected from the villa in a WAV and transported to Faro airport.
The parking area is large for up to 5 cars. The pathway leading to the front door is paved so the ramp on the back of the WAV goes straight onto the pavement.
Please make sure you read and understand the below terms and conditions of the complimentary wheelchair accessible vehicle.
