Covid-19 Safety Measures

At INTERSPORT Rent, hygiene has always been very important to us in ski and bike rental. It has always gone without saying for us that we disinfect helmets, ski boots and other rental items after every rental. Of course we are doing this as thoroughly as ever in the current corona situation. We also ask that you keep to the distances recommended by the federal government and wear a face mask. If you're not feeling well, please stay at home. This is how we can protect each other.

 

We are doing this and much more for your safety:

  • Careful disinfection of the equipment after each rental.
  • Hygiene stations with hand sanitiser for our customers.
  • Sufficient distance through guidance systems in the shop.
  • All Rentertainers wear a face mask in our INTERSPORT Rent shops.
  • Many of our employees have completed a COVID-19 safety training. This training is TÜV certified.
  • We attach great importance to the health of our customers and employees.

 

By the way: If you book your equipment online we can already prepare everything and you just need to pick up your equipment. Ideally, you should also pay online, so we can avoid contact with cash. You can of course cancel your reservation at any time free of charge. You will then receive your money back in full. Our customers have been relying on this for many years.

Information on the current situation in Austria

From 26th December 2020, Austria will be in a lockdown until probably 8th February 2021. Retailers have to close during this time (with the exception of supermarkets, drugstores and pharmacies). However, Click & Collect is possible in all shops. From 25th January, FFP2 masks are compulsory in retail and on public transport, and the distance rule is extended to 2 metres.

Is ski rental allowed during the lockdown? Yes, renting sports equipment is also possible during the lockdown. We recommend to make an online reservation and to already fill in all data during the online check-in (skill level, body height and weight). This way our Rentertainers can already prepare the equipment. You are also welcome to contact the dealer and arrange an appointment for collecting the equipment. Please wear a face mask when entering the shop and keep distance to others. Ski depots can also be used and ski service is allowed.

The Austrian government also has decided that hotels and restaurants will be closed until the end of February 2021. Skiing will be possible again from 24th December 2020, but in view of the restrictions (accommodation and restaurants closed ) de facto only for local residents or in the context of day trips. Cable cars and ski resorts may open, but gondolas and chairlifts may carry a maximum of 50% of the usual passenger capacity. In gondolas and coverable chairlifts, persons aged 14 and over must wear an FFP2 mask (without breathing valve). The Austrian Federal Government has also announced border controls and quarantine obligations when entering the country from risk areas, valid from 19th December 2020. Sind 15th January, an electronic registration before entering Austria is mandatory.

Skiing and corona – what can I expect?

Skiing and snowboarding are outdoor sports. Exercising in the fresh mountain air boosts our circulation and strengthens our immune system. It is also easy to keep disctance on the vast slopes in the Austrian ski areas. 

What do I have to consider during my skiing holiday?

We can achieve anything together! During your skiing holiday, please make sure that you keep distance to others, especially in the sports shops, in the cable cars and during lunch in the huts. Wear a face mask in enclosed rooms and on cable cars (most skiers have worn a mouth-and-nose cover in the past on cold days anyway) and wash your hands regularly. If you feel ill, please inform your hotel immediately and rest. Cashless payments are also recommended wherever possible. If you book your ski equipment online, you can hit the slopes even quicker.
