FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Wellington Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Wellington

New Zealand’s capital, Wellington, is a small city with a big reputation. Wellington brims with coffee, culture, music and movie-making, a beautiful harbor and magnificent lookouts, along with some great excursions for adventures and tours in the vicinity. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Wellington has to offer so you can take full advantage of this vibrant city, and a direct car hire Wellington Airport is also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific rental needs.

General Information

Wellington is a metropolitan marvel amid New Zealand’s scenic splendor. It is the primary departure point for tourists to head to the South Island, but with a strong cultural heart, Wellington deserves to be enjoyed for a few days. The city is unique, with its tight compact core spilling around the harbor with a mix of modern architecture and Victorian and Edwardian villas ringed by a belt of parks and woodland with its cultural buzz is beginning to rival that of Auckland’s. Another quirky feature of Wellington is its location. It lies on a major fault line and is wedged between Wellington Harbor and the Cook Straight, which garners its reputation as the “windy city,” with gale force winds gusting through the tightly-packed high-rise buildings.

To Do

The National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa is a fascinating experience for people of all ages and perfect for when the weather forces you inside. Here you can learn all about New Zealand’s geological, biological, cultural and social history. When the weather clears, you can take a trip up to the Mount Victoria Lookout with a Wellington car hire and take in the stunning harbor. The Wellington Cable Car is an iconic feature of the city and a popular tourist attraction that gives you a tour of the city. On the way back, you can walk down through the botanic gardens. A quick 10 minute drive can get you to Zealandia, a picturesque reservoir with some of the country’s most rare and extraordinary wildlife,. you’re also able to take a movie tour of the city, where you can explore the sets used in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

Attractions

The Old Government Buildings in Wellington are unique in that they are the largest wooden building in the southern hemisphere and second-largest in the world, making them well worth a visit. Wellington is also host to a number of statues and sculptures dotted around the city, from prime ministers to art installations, and are very pleasant to stumble upon. Wellington’s iconic Old St. Paul’s is one of New Zealand’s greatest heritage sites and one of the best examples of timber Gothic revival architecture in the world.

Eating

Food and drink, particularly coffee, is taken very seriously in Wellington, and the city supposedly has more cafes and restaurants per capita than New York. A walk around the compact city will bring you to places like Mojo coffee, Moore Wilson’s, a century-old deli with gourmet cheeses and local delicacies, including salmon and muttonbird, and a quickly emerging craft beer scene. Malaysian food is profuse, and you can get Turkish kebabs, Lebanese food or even Phoenician falafel on the streets of Wellington. The food and drink is so diverse and celebrated that food tours are even available for the eager foodie.

Excursions

Wellington also makes a good base to explore the Kapiti coast, where you can take a car hire in Wellington to drive along the south coast to spot New Zealand fur seals, and the Wairarapa wine district. But New Zealand is so small, and Wellington is so well situated, that most areas of New Zealand, particularly the North island, are accessible with a car.
