Thinking about Hiring a Car to Thredbo?

The roads in the Snowy Mountains are clear for most of the year, but if a big snowfalls hit, chains may be required for two-wheel drives. Chains can be hired in Jindabyne and Khancoban. If you do decide to hire a car then they will need to know your tyre size and don’t forget to ask them about any fittings. Uh oh!

Snow Travel Tips

  • Add antifreeze to your vehicle’s radiator
  • Check tyres have good tread, including the spare.

  • Carrying snow chains is a legal requirement.  Have an under-sheet handy for fitting chains.
  • Avoid sudden braking or acceleration on snow or ice.
  • Use a Windscreen scraper to de-ice your car windows
  • Where you can avoid arriving and departing during the busiest times, Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.
