Make tracks with Avis this winter
We've got everything you need for that skiing or boarding road trip.
Are you geared up for winter?
We have the cars, vans and all the kit you need for a safe but sensational snowy break.
First, you'll want a robust vehicle to handle potentially challenging conditions. Perhaps a SUV, definitely a medium-sized saloon or bigger. Or do you need a cargo or passenger van to fit all your mountain-adventure equipment?
Travelling with skis and boards? Ski racks can be rented from many European hire locations. Then there's the tyres: we stock winter tyres and snow chains to enable safe-as-possible steering. Both products are required in many regions during the cold snap.
Book your winter holiday with Avis, then power to your snow-flecked mountain range of choice.
Add a rackAvailable at selected Avis branches, ski racks can accommodate skis and poles for the whole family and can be reserved during the booking process at participating car hire locations. Snowboards can also be fitted to these magnetic ski racks. Prices vary between countries.
Wheels for the winter ... and chains for extra securityImprove your hire car's handling and elongate stopping distances with winter tyres. They're required by law in some European countries between November and March; in most destinations these tyres are fitted as standard and come free of charge, others may charge a fee.
Snow chains give that extra layer of grip when negotiating snowy or icy terrain. Though not required by law, they're available to rent (in pairs) at certain Avis rental car branches. They can be reserved during the booking process but the option to book is only available at participating branches. Prices vary between countries.
