Question Of The Week
This week's question comes from Mr. Patrick Lovell
Q:Do Hired Cars Come With Snow Chains?
A: Depending on where you want to travel, the snow chains may be or not mandatory. For Example in countries like:Andorra, Austria, France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Italy you will find that the law dictates you must carry snow chains in your vehicle as local road signs may indicate that you need to equip them.

However, the car rental companies don't equip the cars with snow chains for free.
You will have the car equiped with snow tyres free of charge, but for the snow chains you'll have to pay.

The best news on this subject is that Indigo Car Hire can find you really good deals, most of the time at discounted prices.
