When people think of far-flung holiday destinations, places like Australia, Thailand, the Caribbean and other hotspots often spring to mind. Such places tend to get a lot of exposure. However, there is another, often overlooked, nation that has a great deal to offer car hire customers and that is New Zealand.

The spectacular setting for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, this nation has it all. You can opt to go when the weather is warm and there are plenty of attractions on offer for tourists to make the most of.

If you have the spirit of adventure, you might like to make use of your car hire in New Zealand to get to some of the country’s theme parks. Ranging from attractions that feature roller coasters and other hair-raising rides to car and motorbike racing tracks, jet boat facilities and simulator rides, these places are ideal for the young at heart.

On the other hand, if you fancy something a little more sedate and relaxing, there are plenty of thermal springs to unwind in. Also, you can learn about the country’s animals by visiting farms and wildlife sanctuaries.

Meanwhile, if you fancy using your car hire to get to know the nation’s cultural side, there is plenty to see and do. For example, you could watch kapa haka performances by Maori people, follow art trials to visit painters, sculptors and other such experts or head to museums to discover more about the fascinating and diverse history of New Zealand.

The Long and Winding Roads of New Zealand

One of our team was recently on a long haul flight into Heathrow (after the snow chaos!) and spent considerable time chatting to some folks returning from a year of travel around the world. With an age range of 20-34, our team member found it interesting to note that every person immediately (and loudly) proclaimed New Zealand as their favourite place when asked!

Cheap care hire in New Zealand is a blossoming market. As an intensely scenic country, tourist access to New Zealand’s plethora of mountains, valleys, reserves and nature spots is paramount to the country’s economy. New Zealand infrastructure relies heavily upon well-maintained roads and vehicle access (although the Highway Network suffers an element of bad reputation at badly-maintained road surfaces).

As our airport friends professed, New Zealand is a country to see from the air or under your own steam (e.g. cheap car hire in New Zealand) The spectrum of hidden landscape gems and so on makes it a wonderful place to invest in a little cheap car hire, sling your pack in the pack and head off over the mountains!

Driving in other English-speaking countries is usually a bit of a relief for most folks, especially when the driving side is on the left like New Zealand, but never forget that traffic laws, etiquette and protocols could still vary greatly. For example, you risk a fine of around £75 per person for not buckling up at all times in ANY vehicle!

Exploring New Zealand by car gives you the chance to unwind, take the wheel and feel the relaxed Kiwi way of life.
