Default Car Hire at 80?

I've had this query and I wondered if anyone here had any experience of this as I know that some Car Hire companies have maximum age restrictions or impose higher charges? Does anyone know which companies will be able to help?

"I intend to visit Pollensa/Cala San Vicente during the summer and will need to hire a car. I am aged 80 years, will this cause me any problems, difficulties or significant costs?"

we faced the same issue with my father in law last year and the car rental companies were happy to rent BUT a condition was to take out their insurance for example RECORD GO ....

Drivers aged 70 and over
These drivers must contract our Comfort Plus Cover.

I think that the likes of Avis and Hertz might rent to older drivers.
Also, there is a website called Silver Travel Advisor which recommends a car hire firm called Indigo Car Hire who say that they can give advice to "mature" drivers. I've never actually used them but they might be able to help.
