Car Rental with Snow Chains

A car rental with snow chains can give you even more confidence as you navigate winter roads. Renting a car with snow chains is especially good for driving through snow and ice as they provide increased traction. Adding snow chains to your rental car can help eliminate wheel spin and enhance braking ability. If you are traveling on a ski vacation in Europe you might want to consider booking a car rental with snow chains, as many countries require their use during certain months of the year.* With our useful winter car rental accessories, SIXT aims to facilitate safe driving through winter snow and ice.


* Subject to availability. While snow chains are not available in the US, SIXT offers them in most European countries, like Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Snow Chains Bookable in Europe

If you’re traveling to Europe during the winter, it is worth considering whether you’ll need snow chains. At certain times of the year, snow chains can be required in some mountainous regions, including Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Finland and even some parts of Italy and France. It is particularly important to check the local regulations when driving to a ski resort. Snow chains are an easy and cheap extra to add on to your booking with SIXT. If you’re unsure at the time of your rental as to whether they will be needed, please consult our in-branch staff.
