If you have recently turned 75 like myself then you maybe surprised to learn that most car hire companies see you as obsolete..

I have never had so much trouble in my life than when we are booking our annual trip to France to see the family.

Every year we fly in to the same airport and hire the same car from the same place but no, I’m now 75 so ‘we can’t help’ and ‘neither can they, them, those and t’others’.

Speaking to my son, he suggested I try Indigo Car Hire, he uses them when travelling for business and said they were always able to accommodate him. So he directed me to their website www.indigocarhire.co.uk – I was met with a pop up chat box where someone called Connor greeted me.

I asked him out right, I’m now 75 can you help? Yes sir, we can indeed. He advised they have 2 companies that will allow people up to the age of 99 to hire cars and they had an office where we were going.

It was so simple, I didn’t feel comfortable giving my personal information over this online chat so he offered to call me to sort out the finer details. When he called he already had a list of cars and prices for me and it was very competitive with what I usually pay.

All was booked in a timely manner and an email was sent to my son confirming everything, we are yet to pick to the car up but will be sure to send a review of the actual supplier on our return.

Change isn’t always good but in this case we are very impressed, if you are over 75 then you will know the kind of trouble I have had, give these guys a go.

    So nice to hear about companies that don't discrimate we'll be looking at that website even though we're not 75 yet.
