Alpine rentals in Australia 

Travelling in any Alpine Resort during the gazzetted snow season, or in any other area under conditions where a reasonable person would use snow chains, is a Full Responsibility Use Area (refer to the Rental Restrictions section in the Qualifications and Requirements using the locations listed below). Hertz offer “SNO Cover” at selected locations (listed below) for customers travelling to these areas under specific conditions.
 
These conditions are:

  • The vehicle rented must be a Group D, E, F, S and U.  (Ford Falcon, Ford Territory, Ford Fairland, Toyota Camry and Ford Falcon with Sat Nav) Damage caused as a result of the fitting of snow chains and/or ski racks is deemed negligence and full recovery will be sought.
  • When SNO cover is taken, Damage Cover still stands, however customers also have the option of purchasing MAX cover or AER cover to reduce any accident damages excess (Refer to Insurance and Other Coverages section)
  • The cost of SNO Cover is AUD$22.00 per day (includes GST) and is to be applied to the rental.
