Whom are you travelling with?

If there is one country in the world to do a road trip, it’s definitely New Zealand. A relatively small country with spectacular scenery. You won’t need to be driving for hours and hours to get to your next destination. More time spent on the beach, climbing a mountain or wandering through a rainforest. Complete flexibility for you and your friends.

What size car would you like to travel with?

Are you looking for a rental car with a higher driving position, the ability to go off-road, comfortable to drive and fuel-efficient? A compact SUV is practical and enables you to drive all the roads of New Zealand, even the gravel roads. Plenty of room for you and your friends and extra space for your luggage.

Our hire cars are less than 6 months old, are well equipped and are well suited to New Zealand’s roads. We offer full insurance with no gravel road restrictions. And, we know all about the best scenic routes, driving times and distances.

Take it easy. Stop for a swim in a river or lake. Or take a scenic walk to stretch your legs. We encourage a relaxed travel pace, a chance to get to know the ‘real’ New Zealand. Be entertained by spectacular landscapes. You don’t need to travel large distances to see dramatic changes.

Our hire cars include insurance with $0 excess as standard. Please note: there are other insurance limitations to consider.
