    New Zealand Car Hire Fleet Options

    For many travelling to New Zealand it’s a once in a life-time experience and therefore one that should be planned to perfection. With such a long flight ahead, you don’t want to return home having missed out on anything. New Zealand is a country with everything within its borders. From wonderful beaches, amazing landscapes, mountainous peeks to relaxing lakes, you’re never too far away from a memorable adventure. To experience the New Zealand hospitality and culture, stay within the city limits and enjoy a vibrant atmosphere. The capital of Wellington is such a place, where you can sit in a cafe during the morning and attend a musical in late afternoon. Alternatively, why not plan a trip to the Lord of the Rings film set, or go skiing in Tukino? New Zealand has something for everyone.

    Why opt for a Small Car Hire in New Zealand

    Small Car HireIf you’re considering staying within the city limits whilst in New Zealand, then a small car hire is the best option. Containing Mini and Economy, this vehicle type is recommended for city driving.

In addition, mini cars can generally fit two carry-on bags, whilst the economy vehicles can take one large suitcase.
