What you need to know about car rentals in Auckland

We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I get my car rental in Auckland?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Auckland's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Auckland is 21. Take time to go over Budget's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Auckland?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Auckland. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Auckland getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does New Zealand require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in New Zealand. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Auckland?
Auckland certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Auckland?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another Budget. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
