Reasons Why You Should Rent a Car on Your Trip to New Zealand

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

New Zealand- the land of the beautiful. This is the perfect destination for any adventure or nature junkie out there who wants to do a bit of exploring. Even though New Zealand might be a natural choice for your next vacation destination it might not be so clear cut as to how exactly you will be getting around the country. One of the perks about this country is its compact size and the ability to easily travel within it. There are a number of good options from hop on hop off buses & city to city transport to biking or hitch hiking but you might want to seriously consider renting a car as a mode of transport. Here are some reasons to rent a car when you arrive in New Zealand.

1. Auckland - More than likely you will arrive in Auckland and start your journey from this point. Now, before you start your journey into the New Zealand wilderness full of waterfalls, mountains and beaches you should seriously stop and think about exploring what is around this city which is point number one. Auckland has beautiful beaches such as Piha & Karekare which are just beyond the city limits. You have the option to take tours to see these wonders or hop on a bus (warning could take a chunk of time), but if you are looking to do some relaxed free-time exploring or surfing a rental car would be the ideal mode of transport.

2. Your Time, Your Life - On vacations it is really nice to just take it at your pace. A rental car provides you with this leisure and ability to go exactly where you want to go when you desire. New Zealand is really the perfect country to just get a map, your gear and a car to go explore the locations your pinned on the map. Don't forget to stop along the way to take some roadside photos - the scenery you will pass though is astounding.

3. Hostels Camping & More - Around NZ you will have a variety of great accommodation to choose from. There are great unique hostels all around the country with a laid back welcoming vibe to crash and meet other interesting travellers at. If you feel a little more natural you can always just take a tent and pitch it at one of the many beautiful camp grounds around the country. If these options seem to cramp your travel style, explore the wide variety of cabins or beautiful hotels located throughout the country. With a rent a car you have the freedom to get yourself to any type of accommodation that fits your travel agenda.

4. It's Inexpensive - It is always smart to travel within your budget, and renting a car will most likely fit any budget quite nicely. For example an economy car rental can cost only $25 and if you have a lot of gear, trailer rentals are only about $25 a day!
