snow tyres - do I need them driving in winter in Austria?

Hi,

Snow tyres - do I need them driving in winter in Austria?

I'm renting a car and I'm not sure. I can get chains, but should I really be having snow tyres as well?

I'll be travelling routes such as Mayrhofen, Innsbruck, Lucern, Martigny.

thanks

    Yes, definitely.
    But I'm sure that your rental car will be equipped with snow tyres.

    Rental cars are equipped with winter tyres at no charge in Austria (but not if you rent in Germany - where you will be charged extra). If you don't go up to a Alm you won't need the chains.
