Pros:

Easy pick up from the airport. good service staff. .Great car - better than expected!

Cons:

Aerodrive were not notified of our request for car seats so we had to install them ourselves which took a while and was difficult with 2 kids running around. Also would have been nice if they were cleaned/vacuumed before we got them.

In hindsight, I would have hired a bigger car than a Swift. It was a wee uncomfortable as every bump on the road was felt. I'm not sure whether because the car was too small or because the tyres were an inch thick. I prefer the regular standard tyres which can absorb the bumps and have a comfortable ride instead of slick-looking tyres with a bumpy uncomfortable ride.

Feb. 2019

Pros:

Car was reliable and handled well.

Cons:

Luggage capacity was not as described for the class. Had to drive with rear seats folded down, making it obvious we had luggage. Meant that it wasn't possible to sight see to and from the airport.

Jan. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Trunk (boot) was too small with what we reserved. Would have been nice to know ahead of time, but it was a really easy change. Super nice employee helped us get into something bigger. Made it a very easy change.

Cons:

Car size description was off. Car is smaller than we hoped it would be. Seemed expensive, but demand was high.

Pros:

They resolved my issues with the Auckland branch with no complaint and total understanding for my frustration.

Cons:

Would have appreciated a discount on the rental against my initial quote, as originally I had planned to take an SUV for the same rate ended up taking a Toyota Corolla

Top tips for renting a car in Wellington

  • The capital of New Zealand is waiting to be explored and the easiest way to discover everything Wellington offers from north to south is by renting a car. Whether taking a trip to the coast or to the many attractions in the city center, with your own four wheels you are free to create your ideal travel itinerary and see what you want, when you want.
  • Wellington International Airport is situated in the south of the city, and with a car visitors can be in the center in less than twenty minutes. After landing, head to Level 0 close to the baggage claim area and rent a car directly from the onsite car agencies like Avis, Budget, or Enterprise.
  • Wellington has many narrow streets and squeezing through them can be a challenge at first, specifically because even very narrow roads are often divided to serve two directions. When passing through such a narrow road and there is an oncoming car, check if there is a spot on your side of the road to pull over and wait until the other car has passed. Despite the hilly nature of the city and no broad roads in most places, local drivers have a reputation of being polite and adhering to street regulations, so driving is mostly a pleasant experience. Keep in mind that you must drive on the left in New Zealand.
  • Wellington’s morning rush hour can begin as early as 5 am. Between then and 9 am, inbound traffic increases dramatically and waiting times can be up to 40 minutes, so leave well in advance when heading to the airport, for instance. Especially State Highway 1 can get congested during this time and during the evening rush hour from 6 to 8 pm.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Wellington for C$ 55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Wellington at least 7 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Wellington are around 25% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Full-size rental cars in Wellington are around -70% cheaper than other car types, on average
