Driving Tips

In New Zealand people drive on the left side of the road. Also be aware of any stop signs and be sure to stop accordingly.  

Licence Requirements

It is recommended you seek an International Driving Permit before your trip and your valid licence must be matched with the credit card used to make the booking.  

Flexible Hiring Options

We know that any journey is subject to change so if you decide to ‘pay later’ during booking cancellation is free any time. 

Under 25 Car Hire

In New Zealand the minimum age of car hire is 21 years old for most vehicles, and there’s no requirements on how long you’ve held your licence for. 

One-way Car Hire

If you are ending the journey at a different SIXT branch in New Zealand select the location during booking – this may induce tariffs and is dependent on availability.

Winter in New Zealand 2021

There are many unique and exciting cities around New Zealand waiting to be discovered when you arrange car hire in New Zealand, and the winter season might just be the best time to do it.
