Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Nelson?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Nelson's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Nelson is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Budget's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Nelson?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Nelson. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end category 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. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage.

What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget.

Nelson definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Nelson.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Nelson?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Budget. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
