Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Whangarei, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 9 April 2024.
  • What are the requirements to rent a car in Whangarei?

    To ensure you're able to pick up your car rental at the car rental places in Whangarei, you should be aware of some of the restrictions and requirements involved. You'll need to be 21 to be able to rent a car in Whangarei and you must have been driving legally for a full year. If you don't have a valid local licence, make sure you have an international driving licence, which is different from an International Driving Permit. When picking up your rental car in Whangarei, bring the credit card used for the online booking, your booking confirmation and your passport.

  • What are the rules for driving in Whangarei?

    To keep both yourself and other drivers safe, it's important to be aware of local driving laws. The local Whangarei department of motor vehicles is a good place to go for new law changes. While driving your Whangarei car rental, keep to the left-hand lane and pass slower traffic on the right. Make sure you and all passengers have their seatbelts on at all times and avoid using a mobile phone unless accompanied by a hands-free system.

    Whangarei, like most other towns in New Zealand, has roads in good condition and minimal traffic. Your choice of car rental in Whangarei depends on your personal preference.

If you have more passengers or want to head out on a road trip, an SUV or 4X4 offer more comfortable space and a little more power to get you where you want to go faster.

  • Where are the best places to park in Whangarei?

    Parking your car hire in Whangarei is usually a breeze. The city council provides a wide range of off-street and on-street parking, as well as pay and display car parks for travellers and locals alike.
