For this price, however, usually only the smallest cars (Skoda Citigo, Chevrolet Spark, Fiat 500 or similar) are available. A city car with reduced dimensions will not prove very useful if you are travelling to Innsbruck with your own ski equipment.

For more comfort (and luggage space) consider renting a large estate car.

Whenever transportation for a larger group of people is needed, an Innsbruck Airport hire minivan might be a cheaper solution than two standard cars. MPV’s (with space for up to 7 people) are often available to rent in Innsbruck for less than £300 per week.

Please note that ski racks, as well as snow tires and snow chains are available during the booking through Cartrawler. As any other additional equipment, those are payable at the counter of the car rental company, when collecting the car.
