Looking for Car Hire in the Snow?

Car hire for the Snow with Europcar


Looking for a great way to hit the ski slopes this season?

Forget messing with the anti-freeze for your radiator, searching for snow chains or wondering whether or not your car will make it up the mountain. Rent with Europcar and you're set to go!

Europcar are Australia and New Zealand specialists on car hire for skiers and offer dedicated car rental packages for visitors to the snow. Whether you are looking for car hire to take to the NSW Snowy Mountain ski fields of Thredbo and Perisher or visit Victoria's Hotham, Falls Creek or Buller, Europcar in partnership with DriveNow have all your options covered.

Europcar offer a wide selection of vehicles to choose from; all come equipped with snow chains and snow insurance cover. For those new to skiing in Australia it's a condition of travel up the mountains that snow chains are either fitted or carried depending upon your vehicle. Regular car rental terms and conditions void all insurance cover if a vehicle is taken above the snowline without specific Snow insurance cover. 

Booking is easy! Checkout the below and see what's included, and what's not, for Australia and New Zealand. Contact the DriveNow Reservations team on 1300 547 214 or via email at [email protected] who can answer your questions and organise your booking.

All deals are valid to 31st October 2016.
