North & South with Multi Island Hires
Avis New Zealand operates a separate car fleet in each of New Zealand's two main islands (North Island and South Island) and to help travellers wishing to travel across Cook Strait, between the two islands, we have initiated a special rental system called a 'Multi-Island Hire'.
This type of rental allows us to create one continuous booking, at one rate, even though the rental will require a change of vehicle - one rental car in the North Island and another rental car in the South Island.

Terms & Conditions and General Requirements of Multi-Island Hires:
It is important to note that no Avis vehicle should cross Cook Strait between the islands. Any client that does take a vehicle across on an Interisland ferry (i.e. if they collect a car from a location in one island and return the vehicle to a location in the other island) without Avis authorisation, they will face an automatic relocation fee of NZD$450.00 (inc. GST).
