Get winter tyres for your rental car
Taking your rental car on a winter holiday couldn’t be easier if you book our vehicles with a winter tyre package. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, we only provide you with vehicles that are equipped with winter tyres during the winter months.
And the best thing is that winter tyres also come as part of our all-inclusive package. This means that you don’t have to pay any additional costs for winter tyres at your destination, nor do you have to worry about arranging to have them fitted yourself.
Please note that winter tyres have been a legal requirement in Germany since 4 October 2010. By law, all cars must be fitted with tyres that bear the mud and snow symbol for icy, snowy and muddy conditions. People who drive on summer tyres in the winter are skating on thin ice.
There is no fixed timeframe for this legal requirement, but safety experts recommend that you use winter tyres between October and Easter.
Some local fleet providers will charge an additional fee for winter tyres (as an accessory). We will make you aware of any additional charges during the booking process. It is not always possible to book winter tyres online. Please contact our reservations department on +41 (0) 848 - 19 96 00. Our staff will be happy to help you.
