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.
