Just book your car rental online with special packages in order to see the 'Winter Tyres Included' sign, indicating the availability. In addition, please take a look at the guide below, which is a quick summary of regulations for winter equipment in different countries. As not all of the suppliers in these countries offer winterisation fees, we advise choosing Auto Europe's special seasonal package. This guarantees that you will save time and money, as well as be prepared for winter conditions on the road.

 

Car Rental - Winter Tyres

 

Switzerland

In general, drivers are not required to have special winter equipment in Switzerland. However, they are mandatory in a few areas of the country, which are indicated by clear road signs. Thus, if you are visiting Switzerland during the cold months, we always recommend adjusting your car so you can have more peace-of-mind. Several suppliers offer winter tyres and no additional costs for the extra equipment.

 

Italy

Italy doesn't have general regulation regarding winter equipment. However, much like Switzerland, specific regions, indicated by road signs, require winter tyres or snow chains at specific time periods. For these regions, it is compulsory to have the proper equipment usually from 15th November until 15th April. The Aosta Valley area, for instance, requires fitted vehicles from 15th October until 15th April. With our special winter rates, you can rest assured that your car hire in Italy will come with snow chains.

 

Eastern Europe

Suppliers provide winter equipment in numerous Eastern European countries, ensuring safer travels. Please refer to the table above in order to confirm whether suppliers at your destination charge an extra cost for this service or not. Car rental companies in Croatia and Bulgaria, for exemple, already include the winterisation fee in their offers. It's highly recommended that vehicles are fitted for the road conditions during winter time, usually from November to April.

 

North America

North America is another common destination for winter holidays. If you are visiting the USA, rest assured that many suppliers equip car rentals with all-season tyres at no extra cost. On the other hand, the majority of Canadian car hire companies offer winter tyres only for rentals in the cities of Montreal and Quebec. We therefore recommend you to take a look at the Terms and Conditions and reading the supplier's policy when booking your car hire.

 

The Balkans

It is compulsory to drive with winter tyres fom November until March in Macedonia. Luckly, Auto Europe works with companies that include this winter equipment in their rental offer, helping you to stay safe on the road. However, in Bulgaria and Montenegro, a few suppliers may apply an additional charge. In this case, please check out special seasonal offers and avoid that extra fee.
