Some of my colleagues here at Avis UK have been on a skiing trip to Méribel. From what I’ve been hearing – and what you can see in the photo – they really enjoyed themselves!
I thought it would make a good opportunity to point out that when you rent an Avis car in a country with ski resorts, all the relevant equipment (ski racks, snow chains, snow tyres) is available either inclusive or for hire when you place your booking. Each country has a slightly different process and price, so it’s best to check the cost and details.
Until 31 March 2007, snow chains and snow tyres are included in the rental price in Switzerland. France offers hire of a Snow Equipped Vehicle Package, with ski racks for four pairs of skis, four snow tyres and snow chains in the boot of the car.
If you still need to book your ski car hire we have some great promotions in France, USA and Canada. And if you fancy Méribel, Guy Bailey, who’s on our graduate scheme (he’s the second from the left), came back with a whole list of reasons why it’s a fantastic place to ski – as well as enjoy the buzzing nightlife!
Here are just a few:
2. Location: It’s at the heart of the Three Valleys ski area (the biggest in the world), and you can get to Val Thorens, which goes right up to 3,200m at the peak.
3. Great away days (particularly if you’ve got your Avis car!): Including to the Espace Killy, with Val d’Isère and Tignes resorts, and La Plagne, with its Olympic bobsleigh track.
Wherever you choose, to help keep safe during your trip check out Rob’s post on driving in snow.
And I know it seems a long way off, but if you’re looking ahead to summer holiday rental then now’s the time to find our best prices!
