If your tour includes a ferry crossing between the North and South Islands, you have the option to drop off the car at the car depot where you are embarking on the ferry, and pick up a new car when you arrive on the other island. This way you may save the additional cost of taking the car on the ferry (which is about $250).
Alternatively, if you're not bothered with unloading the car and carrying all your luggage again, you may opt to take the car with you on the crossing.
The estimated starting price for a Budget car starts at $42 NZD per day, based on a hire period of 3 weeks.
Car hire pricing will vary depending on the season. Early booking, as well as longer hire periods will lower the price.
All our vehicles our covered by insurance, however an excess applies of NZ$2000 ($2500 for 18-20 year olds and those on a Restricted/Australian red P1 licence). We offer COLLISION DAMAGE WAIVER (CDW) Insurance to drivers over 20 years of age, which reduces this excess to NIL. CDW may be added to your rental at a rate of NZD$15.00 per day for a minimum 4 day hire (NZD$18.00 for MPV, SUV, Family SUV, Premium SUV, 4WD Sport Stationwagon, Premium Elite & Premier). Slightly higher daily rates for CDW apply for shorter hires and these will be shown on the rental options page as you progress through the online booking process.
Note: We do not hire specialty vehicles (MPV, SUV, Family SUV, Premium SUV, 4WD Sport Stationwagon, Premium Elite & Premier) to drivers under 21 or drivers on a Restricted/Australian red P1 licence.
STANDARD INSURANCE excess is NZD$2000.00. If an accident occurs while the car is on hire you are liable for NZD$2000.00 or the cost of repair, whichever is the lesser amount. The excess applies to damage to the vehicle or damage caused by the vehicle. This covers damage to both the rental car and third party vehicles or property up to the value of NZD$1,000,000.00.
