There are not that many people out there who don’t enjoy taking time off and spending some time away somewhere nice with their partner, friends or relatives, are there? And this is especially much more fun when going and seeing somewhere differently to most other people.
And this is one of the reasons why vehicle hire has been on the increases in New Zealand as of late. Driving around can be a lot of fun, and much more enjoyable than having to take tour buses or the likes, so let’s see what more there is which has made it so popular.
Making a Holiday Memorable
First of all, hiring a vehicle is one of those things which many folk over look whilst preparing their holidays, so if you are considering doing so, get it organised with a renowned company, and book it as soon as you possible can.
When looking out for vehicle hire deals, don’t forget that the market depends on matters of supply and demand, and a number of companies may actually lower the fees on specific vehicle types,should they have many left over.
- You might evenbe able to get a larger car and pay less, but not always!
Insurance and Licences
Check that the insurance is full coverage and you’re completely content with it. If you’re looking for a top quality car or campervan hire in NZ, make sure you use anexperienced and trustworthy company.
If you’re not going to be driving alone, remember to bring valid driving licences for others who might also be driving the vehicle. Plus, make sure that all licenses are up to date.
- And if you’re going to need an international driving license for New Zealand,you would be wise to get one organised as soon as possible.
A number of vehicle rental companies have what is known as a “fuel policy”. This means that they will give you your vehicle with a full tank and expect you to return it with the same. If it isn’t full, they will then charge you at their own price to top it up and usually at a charge which is a little bit more than the ongoing rate.
- When you leave the rental pick up location, make a point of knowing where any nearby petrol stations are, so that you can easily refill the vehicle when returning it.
Driving in New Zealand
The quality of driving in New Zealand is very good and nothing to worry about as most people are polite and courteous. And please remember to stay within the law with regards to things like speeding, parking and drink driving.
And finally, New Zealand is a much safer country than many others, but it’s always in your best interests to be careful where you park, and what you leave in your vehicle on display.
Have a great holiday driving carefully and safely in beautiful New Zealand!
