New Zealand Car Rental Services

New Zealand Car Rental

New Zealand is located around 900 miles east of Australia and it was one of the last lands to be settled on by humans. The largest city in New Zealand is Auckland however the capital is Wellington, the country with these locations aiding it has a large amount of yearly tourism with other popular cities being Christchurch, Hamilton and Napier along with of course the capital and largest city. The country has two main island masses but there are no issues with any border travel or ferry travel so that’s not something to be concerned about.

Being that there is two parts to New Zealand you need to take a ferry from one side to the other, with your car rental we can offer you ferry discounts all you need to do is ask. If you are interested in ferry discounts please call or email us directly for more information.

Along with our great deals which I will talk about later, we have even better prices. We can get such great prices because the way in which we work, we operate by finding the lowest price from all the supplying companies and then applying our offers and discounts. Another service we can provide is the ability to freeze the price when you book, this means that between the time you book and pick up the car we can alert you if the price drops any lower than before saving you even more money than originally.
