snow tyres - do I need them driving in winter in Austria?
  • Hi,

    Snow tyres - do I need them driving in winter in Austria?

    I'm renting a car and I'm not sure. I can get chains, but should I really be having snow tyres as well?

    I'll be travelling routes such as Mayrhofen, Innsbruck, Lucern, Martigny.

    thanks
  • Yes, definitely.
    But I'm sure that your rental car will be equipped with snow tyres.
  • Rental cars are equipped with winter tyres at no charge in Austria (but not if you rent in Germany - where you will be charged extra). If you don't go up to a Alm you won't need the chains.

Howdy, Stranger!
