Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Wellington Budget rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my vehicle in Wellington?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Wellington's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Wellington is 21. Take time to review Budget's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Wellington?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wellington. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in New Zealand. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Wellington?
Wellington definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Budget. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
