Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Gisborne?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Gisborne's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Gisborne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Budget's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Gisborne?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Gisborne. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Gisborne vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does New Zealand require car insurance?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Gisborne certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Gisborne?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
