Rental Qualifications and Requirements
Please choose a topic

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit


To comply with the regulations, in the locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges under the item “Winterisation Fee”.


Hertz offers vehicles equipped with snow chains in the following Italian regions: Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Lazio (in selected cities and locations), Abruzzo, Molise, Campania (in selected cities and locations), Calabria (in selected cities and locations), Puglia (in selected cities and locations) and Basilicata.


In these regions, all vehicles are automatically equipped with snow chains for an additional fee of € 2.20 (including tax) per day, € 13.18 (including tax) per week with a maximum of € 32.94 (including tax) per rental. This price is included in your rental charges under the item “Winterisation Fee”.


If the snow chains are not returned a fee of € 73.20 (including tax) will be applied.


At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form.


Please note that if your rate includes the Winterisation you do NOT need to add the snow chains as extra as this equipment is already included in your reservation with the relevant fee. Please check your rate for all inclusions and charges.
