Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Wellington?

There are a couple of restrictions worth noting and requirements you need to meet before you book your rental car in Wellington. To start with, you won't be able to rent a car in Wellington if you aren't 21 or older. Between 21 and 25, you should check the surcharge policy of the rental places. You may incur additional charges for being a young driver. If your licence isn't a local one, you must have an international driving license. When arriving at the rental centre, you'll need a valid credit card, a passport, and your confirmation details. If the credit card isn't in your name, the owner must be present.

What are the rules for driving in Wellington?

When driving your rental car in Wellington, you'll need to adhere to the road rules typical to New Zealand. Stay up to date with local vehicle departments so you're aware of local law changes. Always drive your car rental on the left-hand side of the road. You'll pass traffic on the right. Everyone travelling in the rental car is required to have their seatbelts on at all times while driving. Avoid using your mobile phone unless you have a hands-free device accompanying it. Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal in Wellington and any infringement will result in harsh fines and possible jail time. 0.05% is the legal blood-alcohol limit.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Wellington?

Even though Wellington is one of the busiest cities in the country, it still boasts light traffic and well-kept roads. Your best car rental choice in Wellington depends on your personal needs. If you're planning on spending most of your time in the city, stick with smaller models, like an economy car rental, for better handling and fuel consumption benefits. If you're going to head on a road trip or travelling with a larger group, SUVs and 4X4s are the way to go.

Where are the best places to park in Wellington?

Despite Wellington being the capital city and one of the busiest cities in the country, parking your rental car in Wellington is typically easy.
