Winter Tyre equipped Car Hire is a speciality of MoneyMaxim.
Both through our sister company, the car hire broker Clarify Car Hire, and through other Car Rental partners we offer a great range of options when it comes to cars filly equipped for the winter.
The options include:
Winter Tyres: Designed for high altitude and mountainous regions. Offer really good grip when accelerating, turning and braking. Ideal if you are heading for ski resorts and want to avoid the hassle of fitting snow chains.
Studded tyres: The extreme option where uncleared snow is expected to be on the roads. In locations such as Iceland and Finland these are the norm. Studded tyres can hinder dry road performance. Expect some loss of dry braking and cornering capabilities when on snowless roads.
All Season Tyres Better than standard summer tyres in snowy conditions, but not as good as winter tyres. Often the preferred option in the US and most of Canada.
Snow Chains Can only be used when snow is lying on the roads, and for the first time user can be tricky to fit. However in some locations, especially where some parts of a country need winterisation and some areas don't, they can be the normal option for winter periods.
SnowSocks Not quite as effective as Snow Chains, but much easier to fit, high quality snow socks can be a good option. Check rules for other countries if you intend to use your hire car outside the country you are hiring it in.
When it comes to finding the experts in winter equipped car hire you are in the right place!
