Save Money With A Car Rental Company On Your South Island Holiday

May 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 123

When you're travelling New Zealand's South Island, finding a way to see everything you want to and complete a packed out itinerary can be expensive. With extensive road access and plenty of companies that cater to backpackers and explorers, car rentals are often the best way to get around and do everything on your 'must-experience' list for less. Booking a Christchurch car rental when you arrive at the airport will give you the freedom, mobility and independence that you want for your holiday.

Some people are put off the idea of rental cars because of the implied expense but, with a bit of planning and by taking advantage of the regularly offered specials and deals, getting around doesn't require that you blow your budget. Look out for some of these packages and ways to save during your stay.

Promotions with Backpackers

Many rental car companies team up with backpackers and hostels to offer promotions and reduced rates. Cheap backpackers accommodation in Queenstown such as Bumbles Backpackers are popular options for young people who love the adventure and thrill of the town but are on a limited budget. If you're looking to see a bit of the South Island during your stay, you can often save money on accommodation by choosing a good rental car company.

Car Relocations

A lot of companies offer discount or even free cars to travellers who can help them with relocations. If you have a lot of distance to cover, you're making your way between the North and South Islands via the Interislander Ferry and you have a loose schedule, you can often journey for free with a few enquiries. Pay attention to rental websites for any relocation specials that they're currently offering, but beware that there are often strict time limits in place that you need to adhere to.

Event Specials

If you're coming down for a special event or over Christmas break, a long weekend such as Queen's Birthday weekend in June or other holiday such as labour weekend in October, many rental car companies will be offering discount rates. It pays to check before you arrive in case you can snag a good deal.

Budget Cars

If you're travelling alone or with a partner, budget cars, while smaller and less powerful, are an affordable means of travel. The lack of space might put off those on a family holiday but when there are only two of you the savings can be worth it. Being able to get around and find parking in the bigger cities such as Christchurch and Dunedin is made much easier when you are travelling in a smaller vehicle as opposed to a family wagon.

Membership and Discount Codes

For members of certain motorist associations, hostel and travellers groups or just newsletter subscribers who receive notifications online, you'll often be eligible for a discount on car rental rates. Enquire via email and watch out for promotion codes in your inbox when you're planning a holiday.

Offering more independence and freedom to do what you want to do during your holiday, rental car hires are one of the most popular ways for visitors to get around New Zealand. Keep an eye out for deals before you travel and make the most of your stay.
