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. Please pay attention to keep distance to others and wear a FFP2-mask where necessary. 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:
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.
Given the current Coronavirus infection situation, a temporary nationwide lockdown is in effect in Austria since 22. November 2021 until 12. December inclusive. All tourist facilities such as hotels, restaurants (only take-away possible), bars, cultural institutions, leisure centres, etc. are closed.
Is skiing possible during the lockdown? Ski resorts and cable cars are allowed to open during the lockdown. Skiing is therefore possible under consideration of the 2-G-rule (being vaccinated or recovered). You have to wear an FFP2 mask in gondolas, chair lifts and lift stations.
Is rental open during the lockdown? Yes, renting sports equipment is possible and for the purpose of ski rental, it is also permitted to enter the shop. Please wear an FFP2 mask and keep distance to others. We recommend to make an online reservation and to fill in all data of 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 make an appointment for picking up the equipment. Ski depots can also be used. Ski service and bike service is also allowed during the lockdown.
After the end of the current lockdown, the 2-G-rule (proof of full vaccination/past infection) will be in effect again in Austria. The following measures will be in place:
Entering Austria under consideration of being PCR-tested, recovered or vaccinated is possible from most European countries and some other countries without quarantine.
In Austria, the EU digital Covid certificate ("green passport") is accepted. Alternative proofs (test certificate, vaccination certificate in German or English) are also valid.
Regional (additional) measures can be taken that go beyond the nationwide measures. Information on this can be found on the website of the Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs. In the province of Salzburg, Upper Austria and Vienna, FFP2 masks are currently mandatory in all retail shops.
To what extent are children affected by the measures? Children from the age of 12 require a 2-G proof wherever a 2-G proof is required. Children up to the age of six are exempt from the mask requirement. Children aged between six and 14 years are allowed to wear a nose-mouth protection instead of the FFP2 mask.
Entering restaurants and hotels is possible when you are vaccinated or recovered.
In cable cars, the 2-G rule (vaccinated, recovered) applies. The proof of vaccination or of recovery will be checked when buying the lift pass.
The 2-G rule (vaccinated, recovered) also applies for après ski and christmas markets.
Exercising to stay healthy! 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.
We can achieve anything together! During your holiday, please make sure to wear a FFP2 mask where necessary 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.
For many activities (e.g. entering restaurants, hotels etc.) the so-called "3-G rule" (= short for German “geimpft, getestet, genesen” which means tested, vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19) applies. There is a wide range of testing opportunities in Austria. For autumn and winter 2021/2022, Austria works with a stage plan based on the occupied intensive care beds:
These measures apply additionally when 200 intensive care beds are occupied:
