Tips for a worry-free winter

Give yourself extra time!

Winter comes with its share of surprises. To avoid being late, we suggest you plan a little extra time for your reservations or consider extending.

Make sure you remove all the snow

Remove all the snow around and on the vehicle before driving away, including the hood, roof, and headlights. Don’t forget to de-ice the wipers. If they remain stuck, they might break, at your expense.

Don’t forget gas and washer fluid

As usual, make sure the gas tank is at least a quarter full when you return the vehicle.

If you use all of the washer fluid in the tank, it must be refilled. Submit your receipts through the mobile app to get reimbursed. Please use cold weather windshield washer fluid (-40°), year-round.

Condensation

To fight condensation in an efficient manner, it’s advised to set the air intake dial to exterior rather than recirculation. Otherwise, the interior windows will remain covered in mist.

ABS brakes

All of our vehicles are equipped with anti-lock brakes (ABS). If you feel a vibration in the pedal when you brake on a slippery road, it is most likely because the anti-lock brakes are in action.

Please be considerate

Please shake off your boots and the car mats to avoid snow or water accumulation in the car!

…And drive safely!

We can’t stress this enough! In winter conditions, drive carefully and slowly, and try to brake well in advance. Don’t hesitate to refresh your memory on starting up a car in cold weather by reading the manual located in the glove box of our cars.
