Snow Cover

Perisher, Thredbo, Hotham, Falls Creek... We're blessed with some fantastic ski resorts.  Thrifty's compulsory Snow Cover allows you to rent a Thrifty car and drive above the snow line, so you'll have the peace of mind to enjoy your ski trip even more. 

Enjoy the snow more

When traveling to the alpine regions, the only thing you want to worry about is staying upright on the slopes! So it's nice to know that should the conditions catch you out, we've got you covered. 

Snow Cover, ensures that your vehicle does not breach the normal rental terms and conditions when traveling to the ski fields in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania, although some terms and conditions still apply. Not all of our rental vehicles are suitable for snow terrain. Explore our fleet of hire cars, or talk with our counter staff to find the best car to suit your trip.

Snow Cover does not reduce the Damage Recovery Fee. Ultimate Protection and Premium Protection are also available for your rental however, for incidents happening above the snow line, UP protection will not reduce your DRF. Please ask at the counter for more details about these options.

Whether you're testing your skills to the limit at Mt Hotham, or just enjoying the slopes at Perisher, with Snow Cover you can put your mind at ease and focus on the skiing!
