Thrifty helps you  and your gear reach the slopes safely with snow chains and ski racks.

From Coronet Peak and the Remarkables in Queenstown, to Cardrona and Treble Cone in Wanaka, to Mount Hutt and Ohau in Canterbury (to name a few), New Zealand has an incredible range of high quality alpine destinations.

Renting a car for a ski holiday is a popular undertaking, but if you’re above the snow line you’ll need the right equipment.

We have modern 4WD vehicles for the journey and snow chains available for hire to get you there safely.

Not sure how to put snow chains on? Find out here. We’ve also got ski and board racks to help transport the gear you’ll need for the mountain.

To book your snow accessories simply find the right car for your winter holiday and pick the option that suits you best.

Please note chains can not be fitted to Electric Vehicles. Chains are only available from our South Island branches. If you’re travelling on the Milford Road between May and November you are required to carry chains. For all the terms and conditions go here.
