What is the most popular rental car category in Wellington Region?

Believe it or not, compact cars are by far the most popular rental car category in Wellington Region. And if you're considering spending any amount of time driving around the bustling streets of Wellington or Porirua, you'll soon discover why. Swap the van or SUV for a ride that's zippy and compact — parking is a cinch and they're heaven to drive!

From forests to rolling hills and streams, Wellington Region boasts some picturesque vistas. Why not hit the highway and see the best of them? Hightail it out of the city and embark on some fun day trips. A full-size SUV is a perfect fit for those longer drives. Built to deal with any kind of terrain, these bigger vehicles make it a delight to steer off the beaten path.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Wellington Region?

You'll be pleased to hear that there's a wide variety of luxurious rental vehicles available in Wellington Region. What you end up going with will depend on what you're willing to spend and what you're planning to do. Prestige vehicles offer unparalleled comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not book an elite SUV, or perhaps a slick mid-sized sedan?
