Carrentals.co.uk Advises Winter Tyres Both at Home and Abroad

London, UK (RPRN) 10/26/11 — Online car hire comparator tells motorists to think about winter tyres in UK not just ski destinations

With the UK weather expected to head into a cold snap and snow forecast, award-winning car hire comparator Carrentals.co.uk has warned motorists to think about putting winter tyres onto cars - and not just consider it when booking foreign car hire for ski holidays.

The harsh winter in 2010 saw some suppliers like Kwik Fit sell out of winter tyres, demonstrating that UK motorists were keener than ever to ensure their cars gripped on slippery and treacherous road surfaces.

Each year Carrentals.co.uk recommends to people heading to the ski slopes that they pre-book winter tyres and snow chains to be sure of availability. This year however, with British winters seemingly getting worse, the site is advising Brits to think about winter tyres at home when the weatherman predicts snow and ice.

Most car hire suppliers consider winter tyres and snow chains to be added extras and often hirers expect there to be wide availability of them on arrival in their ski resort - however demand can lead to rental companies selling out of them quickly leaving skiers disappointed.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, commented: “When to put on winter tyres can be a complicated issue and while they're not a legal requirement in most countries they're still highly advisable in snowy and icy weather conditions."

“If you're hiring a car in a ski resort then our advice is to reserve what is known as a ‘snow pack’, to be sure of availability of snow chains, winter tyres and so on.”

Carrentals.co.uk is the leading hire car comparison site comparing cheap car hire deals from up to 50 rental companies, including Alamo, Auto Europe, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt, in over 15,000 locations worldwide including locations across Europe including car hire in Frankfurt and car hire in Berlin.
