I'm hiring a car from Lyon and driving to Les Menuires in half term week. To hire snow chains from the Hire Car provider was going to cost me 80 Euros so I've declined as I think that's a complete ripoff.
I read somewhere that the hirers charge for snow chains as a bit of a slush fund (pun intended) and that the chains will be in the boot whether you pay for them or not. Anyone got any experience?
I'm taking a chance and crossing my fingers they'll be in boot but if they're not then I'll probably buy a set for cheaper than 80 euros in a hypermarche .... But where? Any ideas? If unused I might take them back to the shop on return.
It's tempting to buy a set before I go but I won't know the hire cars wheel size.
Perhaps I should bite the bullet and pay the 80 euros ... It's just I hate being ripped off.
