Reaching these destinations can be challenging due to the sometimes extreme weather circumstances. We have equipped some of our popular vehicles specifically to tackle these obstacles, and get you there safe and comfortable.

Winter Snow Pack

We understand the challenges of winter travel. That’s why our Snow Pack, free of charge, includes:

  • 4×4 with low gear: our vehicles are real 4x4s and offer much more traction and control on slippery surfaces, low gears help you to get even more power to drive on steep sections
  • Ski Carriers: easily transport your ski and snowboarding gear. Carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards on the roof / truck bed of the car.
  • Snow Chains: essential in Georgia during winter, these are included for your safety on icy and snowy roads.
  • Tyres: our vehicles have All-Terrain tyres with M+S/Snowflake mark

Starting December 2023, winter tyres and snow chains became mandatory in Georgia on certain road sections, assigned by the government. The fine for not carrying snow chains is 100GEL.
