What's the age requirement to rent a car in Nelson?

Typically, to rent a car in Nelson you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read through the rental agreement to discover what the total is before you rent your vehicle.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Nelson?

When cruising through Nelson or the rest of New Zealand, you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary coverage through the rental agency.

Many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some insurance on your rental, but there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Be sure to check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

What are the different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Nelson?

Unlimited mileage is a good option for those who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get going on your Nelson vacation, make sure you check out a few things before you leave the lot. It's important to:

  • Inspect your car and be certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
