Our Auckland office is open every day of the week, including weekends and bank holidays, from 7am until 8pm. For its precise location, please click on the map tab. We are pleased to offer customers a wide choice of stylish rental cars, catering for individual needs. All our vehicles are available for daily, weekly or monthly rentals. Our online price comparison service makes browsing the various quotes simple and easy to understand. Once you've chosen a spacious 4x4, such as a Range Rover, a comfortable family car, such as a Toyota Yaris, or perhaps a sporty soft top, booking is just as straightforward. We offer a choice of a reservations line or our website. Whichever method you choose, you can select your hire period in hourly or half-hourly increments. Although we cannot confirm the precise model of vehicle until you arrive to collect it, you can be sure of receiving one from the class that you booked. However, for added certainty, there's the option of using our smartphone app to select a specific vehicle 30 minutes before pick-up.
Whatever vehicle you drive away in, it will have an average age of only 3 months. In addition to this, our car hire in Auckland offers you an affordable service that's tailored to your exact needs. For example, if there are babies or children in your party, we'll provide the right car seats for them. We're also happy to add a second driver to your rental package, which could be perfect if you're planning lengthy drives to explore the South Island by car. We can also offer you Sat Nav rental to make navigating a cinch. As an added bonus, we won't charge you any credit card fees. You'll also benefit from free cancellations in the event that your plans change.
Auckland has an extensive motorway network. Navigating can be a little tricky for the newcomer but the roads are well-maintained and clearly signposted. Although deciding to hire a car in a busy city can sometimes make drivers nervous, our rental office is situated close to State Highway 20A. As a spur from State Highway 20, this road is your chief way of getting into the city centre from the airport, as well as on to the upper part of the North Island. You can also use State Highway 20 to access the Western Ring Route, in order to bypass central Auckland. In the city centre and surrounding suburbs, you may like to use a Sat Nav to help you navigate without needing to refer to a map.
New Zealand's largest city is known for its harbours, its beaches and the panoramic views from its Sky Tower. Surrounded by rainforest, dormant volcanoes, some impressive parks and, of course, the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland has plenty for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. The city itself is vibrant, lively and, as the home of the world's largest Polynesian community, pleasingly multicultural. It's also the centre of a growing interest in south Pacific cuisine. More and more of the local restaurants now reflect this new foodie vibe, with fatty lamb ribs and roasted wahoo (a type of fish) only two of many local delicacies to watch out for.

There are plenty of beach-front cafes and restaurants, and opportunities to try everything from kite surfing to roller skating.
