Snow Cover | Budget Australia

 

Seeking a white winter and want to hit the slopes to dust of your skills? Don’t forget to add in snow cover in your next rental. This will allow you to drive past the snow line in the Alpine regions of Jindabyne (NSW), Bright (VIC) and Tasmania. Without Snow Cover between the months of 01 June till 30 September you will be in breach of the Rental Terms and Conditions (Appendix 3.3.2) and be liable of the full excess amount applicable to your rental.

In conjunction with snow cover you will need to be renting the appropriate vehicle suitable to the snow terrain or vehicles which are suitable to fit snow chains to the tyres. Have a look at the list below to see if you’re renting the correct vehicle before you book.
