On arrival in Auckland

When you touch down New Zealand, collecting your hire car couldn't be easier. If you've decided to pick it up at Auckland Airport (AKL), then head to the car hire provider's desk within the Arrivals hall. If you're collecting your rental car from another location, then make your way to the address listed on your booking confirmation. Once there, a member of the team will run through the details of the car rental agreement with you. There will be some forms to fill in ahead of the keys being handed over for the car. They will also remind you of the fuel policy for the car, as well as whether there is any mileage limit for the vehicle.

Please ensure you have the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code
  • A valid passport

On your return

When it's time fly home, full details of where to return your Auckland hire car to will be listed on your booking confirmation. When you drop your rental car off, the provider will give it a quick check over before you head off.

Exploring Auckland

Auckland city itself is packed full of things to do to indulge your spirit of adventure. The Iconic Auckland Sky Tower Offers up several activities including walking its edge, or for those really looking for an adrenaline rush, a sky jump off the top! This is not for the faint hearted, as it's over 190 metres up, but is an experience you'll not find anywhere else. Then there's the Auckland Harbour bridge that offers a bridge climb and even a bungee jump over its edge.

For those of you looking to indulge in New Zealand's rich cultural heritage, both the Brick bay Sculptural Trail and the Auckland Museum have you covered; both a short drive from Auckland's Airport.
