KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Auckland

  • Auckland has a number of one-way streets that can be confusing for drivers who are new to the city. Pay close attention to road signs and markings when driving on these streets to avoid getting lost or going in the wrong direction. One-way streets are typically marked with arrows pointing in the direction of traffic flow. Follow the arrows and drive in the same direction as the other vehicles. Some frequently used one-way streets in Auckland include Albert Street, Customs Street, Federal Street, Fanshawe Street, Quay Street, Symonds Street, Hobson Street, Nelson Street, Pitt Street, and Karangahape Road.
  • Like any city, Auckland has some roads that require more caution than others. Tamaki Drive is a popular tourist route running along the waterfront, but it can be narrow and winding, with limited visibility in some areas. State Highway 1 runs through the heart of Auckland and can be congested and prone to accidents, especially during peak traffic times. Dominion Road is a busy arterial route with multiple lanes, but it can be challenging to navigate, particularly for inexperienced drivers. Auckland Harbour Bridge is an iconic landmark in Auckland, but it can be challenging to navigate, especially during high winds or heavy rain.
  • Auckland has two toll roads. The first is the Northern Gateway Toll Road located on State Highway 1 north of Auckland. The toll is charged for vehicles traveling northbound from Orewa to Puhoi. The other is the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road located on State Highway 2, southeast of Auckland. The toll is charged for vehicles traveling between Domain Road and Paengaroa. It's important to note that both toll roads use electronic tolling, which means there are no toll booths or cash payments accepted. Before hitting the road in an Auckland car rental, confirm the toll policy with your rental car provider.
  • Explore the beauty of Auckland and enjoy maximum flexibility by renting a car immediately upon your arrival. The city with over 1.6 million people stretches from the Hunua Ranges Regional Park in the east to Waitakere Ranges in the west. Venture out into the iconic and scenic landscape of New Zealand with a car and reach your destinations quicker and easier.
  • Get to Auckland’s center in under half an hour after choosing your rental car directly at Auckland Airport. Located at the arrivals area, there is a car rental center which provides vehicles from companies like Avis, Europcar, or Hertz, among others. After the pick-up, follow the signs to State Highway 1 which will lead drivers directly into the heart of Auckland.
  • Note that in New Zealand, people drive on the left side of the road. Be especially careful when entering roundabouts and intersections, as you will have to remember to go clockwise and via the left lane. Drivers from countries without the metric system should also be aware that speed limits are given in kph rather than mph; however, the rental car will have the speedometer in kph on the display, so it should be no problem.
  • Auckland has daily rush hours where congestion is increased and delays can be up to an hour. Try to avoid going in or out of the city in the mornings between 7 and 9 AM, when the traffic is usually worst. Between 4 and 6 PM, workers returning home also increase the amount of traffic, so opting for times outside the given ones above saves energy and time. When you visit Auckland in winter, prepare for the conditions and order snow chains with the car, if necessary.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Auckland for $34 or less
  • Book your rental car in Auckland at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Auckland are around 130% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Auckland are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

Stay left ;) Don't speed. Make sure to stay off toll roads or declare that at the pickup.

Be ready to meet the friendliest car rental people, literally, in the world! I would recommend windshield insurance as the roads in NZ throw a lot of rocks.

FAQs about renting a car in Auckland

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Auckland?

    Especially for drivers who are not used to driving on the left side of the road, a smaller compact car is recommended, as it makes maneuvering through the lanes and roads in Auckland easier. As road conditions are mostly good in and around Auckland, a 4-wheel drive car is only necessary if you want to venture out into the deeper nature of New Zealand, where country roads can turn into gravel paths.

  • What’s the speed limit in Auckland?

    The speed limits are given in kilometers per hour and in areas with pedestrian traffic, the maximum is 30 kph (18 mph). In residential areas, the maximum speed is between 40 and 50 kph (24-31 mph), 80 kph (50 mph) on country roads, and up to 110 kph (68 mph) on motorways. Despite these regulations, always check the posted signs and adhere to the given speed limit.

  • Where are the best places to park in Auckland?

    From on-street parking to parking garages, Auckland offers various parking opportunities for rental cars. On-street parking is usually metered, so make sure to check the time restrictions, if there are any, and pay the amount of money required.

Initially, I was concerned based on some of the negative comments but decided to proceed as the positive comments from other travellers rated their experience as great and I booked online. Closer to our departure date, Yesaway confirmed via email the vehicle booking with instructions upon landing. The rental base was at Mangere, about a 5-10min drive from Auckland international airport. Our vehicle model (RAV 4 Automatic) was not brand new (I already knew this from other travellers comments) but the vehicle interior was very clean, it was spacious, it worked perfectly and got us from point A to point B without any issues for our 5 passengers. Yesaway had marked on the paperwork all the little scratches, marks and little nicks on the outside of the vehicle prior to our picking up the vehicle (which saved us time from doing it) and we did a cursory look over. We did not experience any problems with the paperwork on pickup or drop off. We filled up the vehicle before dropping it off; and we were taken to the airport by shuttle. The service by the Yesaway consultants on pickup and dropoff was courteous. I recommend using Yesaway, Auckland Airport and will do so on our next visit.

Avoid at all costs. Gave us a car with windshields wipers that were broken. We contacted branch manager Rachel and was promised a phone call twice. Rachel received the message but decided customer safety was not her concern and did not return my call or email for the past 3 business days and counting. You would think that a car that is not road-safe during rainy season would be a priority to her but it is not. We also waited an hour for our car rental. Pickup was for noon and we didn't leave until past 1. I was the first from my group to arrive and yet one of the last to get my car. They told me it would be a 10 minute wait but it was much longer than that. Car provided was in poor condition and unsafe to drive. Their response to poor reviews is always the same. They ask you to email them but then don't actually resolve the issue.

We booked a one way rental. While there was a budget rental office at the Auckland airport only the downtown office did one way rentals. When we booked we were told there was a shuttle from the airport. This was definitely not true and we had to pay $180nzd and take a 30 minute drive to get to the budget rental office. That was a very unpleasant surprise after flying around the world with three young kids! I will avoid budget in the future because of that.

Pros:

The car was large enough for my needs.

Cons:

The price given to me online was not the price I was charged for and when I called the 800 number, the customer service office was closed. I feel I was charged more money because I was in a rush to catch my flight- Poor business practice by Budget. When I picked up the car, the service representatives had me sign that the car was not damaged before even receiving the keys. I asked if there was damage, could I come back and fill out the form to reflect that, and they said "yes"... but the second I received my keys they shut the gates and left for the day. I asked why the price on the document they gave me was different than what I received online and they told me I'd only be charged the additional amount if I returned the car with less than a full tank of gas. The car was returned full and I was still charged more money than quoted online.

5.2 Fair

KAYAK

Pros:

Clean ride

Cons:

When other rental car companies quoted me it was an all inclusive cost, it wasn't clearly noted that the car was a manual and the price didn't include insurance. So when I actually picked up the car they gouged me on both of those and the quotes price was more than doubled. I had somewhere to be and didn't have much of a choice. Feel like they knew that and really took advantage with the price.

Scotty at Auckland airport was great, helpful friendly etc but after that all downhill. I’ve emailed thrifty 3 times about issues with the car and still have had no reply. I called their customer service and the issue was not resolved. The car has been returned but the office was closed at 4 pm on a week day so I could only drop the keys off and still have not been able to speak to anyone. Poor customer service.

Car was super. Pick-up could have been faster, if there was like an online check-in that would cover most things or so.

Pros:

Very new and clean car. Smooth administration. Just perfect.

Cons:

At the drop-off we had to give the keys to a guy in the car park with a little thrifty sticker on his shirt. We did not get any confirmation that we gave the car back nor that is was still in perfect conditions. It felt a bit weird afterward that we had nothing in your hands to proof that we brought the car back without any damage.

They require you call for pickup but do not answer the phone. The Hertz employee at the airport was very helpful.
