If you want to see everything Tauranga has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can drive wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your next trip to New Zealand even more enjoyable with a Hertz rental car.
With everything to do and see in and around the region, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your stay. Whether you have to have dinner at that new cafe across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own auto to see as much as you can while on your trip. No matter where you end up staying in , if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having your auto is a must.
We work with some of the top car rental dealers in the business. Hertz has over 100 years of car rental experience and a fleet including several of the most well-known in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz storied history and thousands of locations worldwide, you'll be well taken care of.
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Tauranga is 18. Make sure to review Hertz's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Tauranga. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to . Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your car with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Tauranga certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Hertz. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
