It is illegal for any car rental agencies to discriminate against age.  And if any are caught doing it, they can be fined severely.   Some people in their 80s dread getting onto a highway or onto a street in super heavy traffic.  St. Louis has a paratransit service for those who feel unsafe of getting behind the wheel in a strange city.  I live in the St. Louis area and the paratransit service we have here is called Call-a-Ride.  Just like a car rental agency, best to make a reservation.  To obtain a Call-a-Ride visitor card, dial 1-314-982-1510 and have them send you an application in the mail for a visitor card.  Then once you are set up and the application has been mailed in, then you book your trips on Call-a-Ride by calling 1-888-652-3617.  There are no age restrictions for making any reservations with a car rental agent.  

Seniors are just antique people rich with history.

Message 3 of 3

I am planning a trip and want to fly but will need to have a car when I get there.  I have been told that some car rental companies will not rent to people after a certian age.  I am 87 and have a valid drivers liscense,  Should I ask ahead of time or just take my chances?
