Frequently asked questions

You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Wellington's minimum age to rent a car?

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Wellington?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Wellington. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions.
