Our Customers Reviews

March 16, 2019
We loved downtown Auckland, Sheep World, the museum. We also got to visit the outdoor sculpture at Gibb’s Farm, which was amazing.
March 15, 2019
Traffic can be as bad as any large city , just give yourself enough time for your trips.
March 6, 2019
Great spot.
March 6, 2019
Auckland was busy on a Friday afternoon with many escaping the city for beach locations etc, NZ generally delightful.
March 5, 2019
Best to pick up car hire when leaving Auckland as parking is quite expensive in the CBD area.
March 1, 2019
I would say that hiring a car is almost essential for exploring the Northlands, we didn't spend much time in Auckland itself but that can be done using public transport.
February 28, 2019
Driving in Auckland is not difficult and save time instead of using public transportation
February 28, 2019
NZ is a great country to visit.
February 23, 2019
Most NZ roads are in good shape, but are quite hilly, winding and with no shoulder. I rarely was comfortable driving as fast as others- add driving in the "wrong" lane to make driving an adventure.
February 19, 2019
I drove North to see friends at Opua and Russell, the Bay of Islands is such a beautiful spot.
January 28, 2019
Auckland is a beautiful City to drive around. Roads are very user friendly and easy to navigate with GPS. Drive to the Bay of Islands was very enjoyable.
January 25, 2019
Auckland is a pleasant City , north of Aukland is Stunning scenery and the Coromandal to the South is certainly deserving of a visit.
January 17, 2019
We spent a month on North Island and hired a Toyota Corolla The car was just what we needed. Places not to miss are Bay of Islands cape Reinga and the coromandel
January 14, 2019
If driving round the cormandel and other outside areas of Auckland this is the best way to see some of the natural wonders the surrounding area has to offer.
January 13, 2019
We didnt stay in auckland but you really do need a car to get around in NZ
January 10, 2019
A self-drive holiday is quite easy in the North Island of New Zealand. I used DiscoverCarHire.com to pick up and drop off a car in Auckland and drove about 1,000 km. I recommend visiting the Bay of Islands and Rotorua.
January 7, 2019
In Auckland public transportation is available and quite efficient, but in other areas of the Northern Island a car is certainly necessary
December 29, 2018
Must if you really want to explore Auckland properly.
December 21, 2018
A lot of free places to park, traffic not as bad as in other major cities.
December 12, 2018
I think one needs a car to trully envoy all of the spots in NZ, it is otherwise pretty hard to navigate.
November 7, 2018
Nice city. Choose the right season to avoid wet weather.
October 31, 2018
Aucklad is a good place to rent car.
October 17, 2018
For traveling north or out west, the car came in very handy.
August 1, 2018
Auckland is a very good city. Beautiful and relaxing.
June 28, 2018
Auckland is my favorite city. I used to live there ten years ago and really appreciate having a car so that I can explore. Hitch Car Rentals fit my needs very well, highly recommend to others.
