  1. Default advice on equipment needed

    gday! a friend and i are coming to the states from australia in november to travel route 66. we were just wondering what equipment we would need. we really have no idea so any advice would help. also will it be snowing from mid november - early december? so will we need snow chains or anything like that. being from australia weve never driven in the snow before.

    Default Well to start..

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    It will certainly be possible for you to see snow or ice during your trip. Chains are usually a good idea in winter, but rental car companies generally frown on them, and if you are unfamiliar driving in snow in the first place, you will likely be better off simply waiting out any storm you encounter.

    Otherwise read our Winter Driving Tips, which includes a list of things to bring with you for safe winter travel.
