Car Hire Winter Equipment

If skiing is on your agenda and you need a ski rack with your car hire, we can take care of it. With a ski rack there’s no need to worry about the size of car you hire or if your skis will fit. Our winter equipment extra means you can transport your winter sports gear safely and securely.

The winter equipment package allows more room inside your hire car for you and your passengers and is the convenient way to carry your skis.
