Winter products

If you're anticipating some wintry weather on the roads, or you're driving to the slopes, get prepared and pre-book before you go. Winter tyres are required by law during certain times of the year and snow chains can offer an extra level of reassurance. A ski or snowboard rack may come in useful too.

GPS Sat Nav.

Handy extras

You can pre-book GPS sat navs or mobile Wi-Fi so you can avoid roaming charges. The Roadside Safety Net covers non-mechanical mishaps like having a flat tyre. Or you can add additional drivers so you can break up the journey and enjoy a stress-free rental.
