How old do you have to be to rent a car in Taupo?

Usually, to rent a car in Taupo you must be at least 21—the same as it is across most of the country. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to find any additional charges will be before you reserve your rental.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Taupo?

Insurance is always needed, wherever you're renting a car. With that said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's benefits may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies might not totally cover your rental, and you'll need to add it to your booking for Taupo.

What is the fuel policy for Taupo rental cars?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before returning the rental car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Before you leave the lot

Make sure you check a few things before you leave the car rental lot on your Taupo adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Look over your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new area
