Driving in winter conditions can be difficult for even the most experienced drivers, so make sure you are prepared to face the snow and ice with our available fleet of vehicles equipped with snow tires. If you are visiting locations in the US that are known for their snowy winters, our all-season tire equipped vehicles will allow you to feel safe and secure while navigating winter conditions.

To add-on winter tires to your rental, simply select the option after you have chosen your ideal car category. The price will be shown and updated automatically.

How to Book Winter & Snow Tires

Unlike other extras, snow tires come as standard* in countries where they are required either by law or due to the winter driving conditions. To make sure you're renting a vehicle with winter tires, when selecting your car online you will see beside the car if they are included. Should they not be fitted already, please request them and our staff will be sure to meet your needs.

*Subject to availability. Even though winter tires are not available in the US, SIXT provides them in many areas that experience winter conditions around the country.

In the US

In the US, all SIXT rent a car vehicles are equipped with all-season tires that give you security during the winter months. If you're heading to a ski resort or an area that will likely have snowy weather, we recommend that you choose a vehicle with 4WD. Our helpful staff in-branch can also advise on what is best for your trip.

In Europe

In Germany and Austria, winter tires are required by law during the snowy seasons. During this period, your Sixt car rental will come equipped with them as standard with no extra cost.

In France and Switzerland, winter tires are not required by law, however, they could be very useful if you’re planning on visiting the Alps or going on a ski trip. After entering your desired pick-up locations and dates, you will see which of our rental vehicles in Switzerland and France are bookable with snow tires and then how much they cost per day. Our helpful staff in-branch can also advise on which is best for your trip.
