Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Auckland Airport and start exploring New Zealand’s largest city! Auckland is truly modern and has lots to offer. With your rental you can head over to one of its museums, take a virtual trip into space at the Stardome Observatory, or visit the Wintergardens, home to tropical plants you won’t see anywhere else in the world.

But make sure you also explore Auckland’s fascinating history. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about the native Maori culture, see traditional performances, and visit ancient sites, most of which can be reached with your rental car.

New Zealand is a unique place with so much to offer. You can take your rental car on a ferry to South Island where Lord of the Rings was filmed—explore the majestic mountains and volcanoes, and even go skiing or snowboarding! With a rental car you’re truly in charge of your trip.

Auckland Airport is the largest airport in New Zealand—it handles more than half of the country’s international flights.
