Rental Terms, Qualifications and Requirements

Please select a topic from the pull down list below

The mountain law requires drivers to equip their vehicles with anti-slip devices (tyres or snow chains or snow socks) in 34 departments between 15 November and 31 March.


Failure to comply with this requirement may result in a fine, additional costs or even immobilization of the vehicle (for which the driver is liable).
