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 FFP2 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. Our customers have been relying on this for many years.

Information on the current situation in Austria

From 25th January, FFP2 masks are compulsory in retail and on public transport including gondolas and closed chairlifts. The distance rule has been extended to 2 metres. Since 8th Febuary, retailers are allowed to open.
There are special measures for the provinces of Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland from 1st to 18th April 2021: there is a lockdown (therefore retail is closed).

 

Is ski and bike rental allowed during the lockdown? Yes, renting sports equipment is also possible during the lockdown. We recommend to make an online reservation and to 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 as well as bike service is allowed.

The Austrian government also has decided that hotels and restaurants remain closed for the time being. Individual sports, including skiing and biking, are possible. But in view of the restrictions (accommodation and restaurants closed ) de facto only for local residents or in the context of day trips. 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.

Biking, skiing and corona – what can I expect?

Biking, 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 in the Austrian mountains.

What do I have to consider during my holiday in Austria?

We can achieve anything together! During your 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 FFP2 mask in enclosed rooms and on cable cars 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 sports equipment online, you will get to the mountains even faster.
