There are dozens of car rental and transport providers in New Zealand. Some service travellers from other countries while others focus on cargo transportation. You can rent a car that can seat 5 people to a 10-wheel truck for cargo transportation.
You can either drive the rental or have one of your companions drive it or, you can hire a driver, who will also be provided by the car rental company. Car rental in New Zealand is a booming business especially for backpackers all over.
You must choose the right provider to get affordable rates and the necessary inclusions. Here’s a list of the most trusted car rental companies here in New Zealand.
Apex Rental Cars
Apex has one of the most modern and largest fleets in all of New Zealand. This company is recognised as one of the best because of its affordable rates and the fact that they don’t charge any hidden or extra fees at all. Apex also provides airport transportation to and from the airport.
Their fleet consists of small cars, large cars, SUVs, and cargo trucks. They allow multiple drivers as long as they are 21-years old or above. Apex services include basic insurance, roadside assistance, and free one-way rental.
Jucy is popular among backpackers. The minimum age for driving is 18 years old. However, they only allow one driver per rental. Jucy Rentals is the ideal choice for a budget trip as their rates are competitively affordable.
Their services include roadside assistance, basic insurance, and activity discounts. Just like Apex, they also offer transportation to and from the airport.
Omega Rental Cars
Omega is king when it comes to pick-ups and drop-off spots. There are also no one-way charges, so Omega is worth considering for long haul drives from one island to another. Omega offers small cars, large cars, SUVs, 4WDs, station wagons, and people carriers.
Their vehicle age range is 1 to 10 years old. All cars are well maintained, and packages include basic insurance, maps and guidebooks, free seats for children, and the option to leave a car rental at Picton/Wellington and then pick up another vehicle after ferry crossing to reduce cost.
