Winter Tyres Regulations in Europe

If you are driving abroad this winter, you should prepare yourself for more severe weather conditions than at home, especially, if heading to winter sports destinations in central Europe. Knowing and understanding country-specific regulations is as important as staying secure on the road and ensuring the safety of the people travelling with you.


While some countries have introduced mandatory winter tyres, there are other European states where special winter equipment is only recommended. It is the driver's sole responsibility to ensure the vehicle is equipped with relevant winter equipment. This infographic presents where winter tyres are mandatory, and what follows, where additional local fees are applied when hiring a car with winter tyres. Auto Europe's booking engine displays "Free: Winter Tyres" rates, so that you can stay safe and save even more! Check out this infographic!
