Car rental in New Zealand

Jump to last reply

I'm in the early stages of planning a 10-12 day trip to NZ in April. I've seen other comments here about driving but I can't find them now that I need them.

Is there a rental company in Wellington that you recommend? I seem to recall someone said there was a company that has reliable vehicles with minor bumps and dings for people like me who aren't used to driving on the left side of the road.

Any other driving advice? This is probably just for a few days on the north island (Tongariro and Rotorua). Most of our time will be on the south island so we're considering flying north from ZQN or IVC then driving. (Look for another post in a day or so as I try to figure out the actual Itinerary. My first plan was too ambitious).
