Winter Car Rental Tips: 4 Tips for Driving Safe


The major question that we have asked ourselves at least once in our lifetime is ‘How do I handle the snow and ice in a rental?’. Cheaper Car Rental provides you the best tips to avoid all the hazardous experiences and to stay safe on the road.

The obvious perils of a winter driver are the snow, ice, winter fog and continuous rains. The major question that we have asked ourselves at least once in our lifetime is ‘How do I handle the snow and ice in a rental?’. Cheaper Car Rental provides you the best tips to avoid all the hazardous experiences and to stay safe on the road.

  • Check the vehicle before departure : Thoroughly checking the rental car before starting for the destination is a wise decision to make. The tread in the tyres, pressure in the tyres, windscreen wipers, topped up engine coolant, stocked emergency provisions and other things ensure that the hazards on the roads do not cause delays/unfortunate incidents.
  • Check the winter terms and conditions of your car rental agreement : Remember that only a few companies allow the vehicles to be taken into the snow. Check your route and ask for additional snow cover.
  • Adjust your driving techniques : Wet, icy roads can greatly impact your car's ability to function normally. A lot of precision and decisiveness is required while driving in the winters. Slow down and avoid sudden braking or turning!
  • In worst case scenarios : If you are stranded or stuck, remain in the car but switch off the engine to save the fuel. To avoid any further damage, call the emergency services or the breakdown cover provider.
    Cheap Car Rentals offers a range of car rental and hire options even during the winters. Browse through our Excess Reduction Packages and we hope that your winter driving goes hassle-free.
