What size car would you like to travel with?

Select information that matches you

A large SUV is an ideal size for the whole family. And a size that we highly recommend for families of four or five. Luxurious space for your children in the back seat and extra room for your luggage. Enjoy the higher driving position, increased safety, extra power and better views.

As an ultimate road trip destination, New Zealand is perfect for a self-drive holiday. You won’t be sitting in the car for long periods, but you will see big differences. Discover walking tracks and viewpoints in national parks, take a scenic coastal route or have lunch by a river.

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