Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Dunedin?

To make sure you're able to pick up a car rental in Dunedin, you'll need to be aware of a couple of requirements you need to meet to leave the lot with your car rental. You'll need to be 21 and have held your license for at least 12 months. Your licence must be an international driving licence or a local licence. If your license isn't in English, get an International Driving Permit with an English translation.

You and all of the passengers will need to wear a seatbelt at all times and using a mobile phone is forbidden unless there's a hands-free device.
