10 AugCar Rental Tips in NZ – All Based on Our Experience

I am no expert when it comes to traveling. In fact, I have only been to a few other countries besides the one where I was born in for my 35 years of existence. But yes, this article I have written is basically a set of tips about New Zealand car hire.

A few months ago, my wife and I decided to go back to Hamilton with our seven-year old son and three-year old daughter. It was in this area in NZ where I first met her so we decided to spend our 10th year anniversary here – this time with our kids.

No, we’re not that filthy rich. We have been saving up for this trip for the last couple of years. And because we have our children with us, we decided to make sure that we’ll spend on real quality time during our vacation over incidentals like transportation.

This is the reason why I told my wife to go for car rental instead of public transport as soon as we got to the capital. Can you imagine spending hours on a bus going from one place to another without the freedom to make stops when you feel like it?

We’re kind of adventurous and, if you are too, then our first advice is that you really need to rent a car.       Billabong Shoot New Zealand Photo Nick Hamilton

Here, now, is our second advice: make the reservation for that rental while you are planning for the trip.

Mind you, this should not just apply to getting that New Zealand car hire. Do so with your accommodations and, if possible, restaurant reservations. This way, you really get to allocate your funds well for the trip.

You might have heard from ‘travel experts’ that it is best if you go for world-renowned international companies like Avis. Unfortunately, small and remote areas in this country (or anywhere else in the world for that matter), do not have offices of these car for hire agencies.

Besides, it’s not nice for you to judge local businesses so negatively. Some of the car hire in Palmerston are quite reliable. And they’re cheaper too! Again, do your research early on and you will definitely find one that will suit your needs and your budget.

Finally, don’t forget to map out your route. This is not just for the New Zealand car hire company (some will ask for this, after all). This is also for you so that you can prepare for the whole trip really well.

When traveling with the whole family, enjoy the comforts and convenience of exploring Hamilton, New Zealand with a car hire, book yours with http://carhirenation.co.nz/.
