    Since the Transportation Ministry obviously knows that winter tires are the only (relatively) safe option on snowy roads, why are they not mandatory for rental cars driving inland in winter?

      Hi Ann,

      Rental cars driving inland for the winter are subject to the same requirements as any other car. They should have tires with either the M+S symbol or mountain snowflake and a minimum of 3.5 mm tread. If they do not have these tires they will be required to carry chains and be prepared to use them on mountain passes. Hope that this helps!
