Rental Car New Zealand

Arguably one of the most stunning countries in the world, New Zealand has stunning mountain ranges, beautiful beaches and some amazing active volcanoes. Made up of two large islands and a few smaller ones, its landscape is so diverse, its sunning landscape meant that New Zealand was chosen to be the location of all the lord of the rings and hobbit films. The population of the country is only around 4 million thus much of the land is sparsely populated, ideal for traveling with your hire car.

Take your car hire New Zealand for a trip though the country and get to know the locals. To outsiders, kiwis are just a fruit however, in New Zealand a kiwi can either be a fruit, flightless bird or New Zealander native. When driving through the country you will come into contact with all three, especially the latter. The local Kiwis are known for their friendliness and you can also experience the way of life of the indigenous Maori peoples.

Explore New Zealand’s beautiful landscapes

Explore New Zealand and get to know the beautiful countryside and everything it has to offer, take your rental car New Zealand for a trip along the Milford sound, a Fjord located in the south island and voted as the top travel destination in the world in 2008. Enjoy some amazing views of its mountains and secluded waterfalls. The Abel Tasmin national park, named after the first European to discover New Zealand, is an area measuring 87 square miles. Park your car up in one of the car parks and undertake a great hike along the coastal or inland track, both take a few days to complete.


If you are not the outdoorsy type, New Zealand has some great cities in which you can get lost. Auckland is the largest metropolitan area in the country and home to many sights such as the largest free standing tower in the southern hemisphere, The Sky Tower, and the One Tree Hill peak located on a volcanic peak, both sites offers a nice view of the city.

Dunedin has a large Scottish heritage it is sometimes referred to as the ´Edinburgh of the South,' as Dunedin is the Gaelic name for the Scottish city. Dunedin is regarded as New Zealand’s most historically interesting place, it is home to New Zealand’s only castle, Larnach Castle, first newspaper in the country started here and the city and its surrounding areas are home to some interesting animals.

Queenstown is surrounded by the mountains of the Southern Alps and located on the edge of Lake Wakatipu. Queenstown is popular for those looking for adventure as it known as the capital of adrenaline. The town was the location of the first bungee jump, so thus all things adventurous have become popular here, including but not limited to bungee jumping, skydiving, zip lining, and white water rafting. It this does not spark your interest, you can always just relax and take in the beautiful scenery.

Using a rental car to explore New Zealand gives you the advantage of being able to stop at one of the many fruit and vegetable stalls to get some freshly harvested fruit which the farmer has to offer. Using your hire car New Zealand also gives you the chance of making a tour around the country, you can start at the Auckland Airport and from there explore the northern island then move on to the southern island and explore the breath-taking scenery and end in the city of Dunedin.
