At these locations, you'll find a reliable fleet of vehicles in a range of sizes, from the more compact and economical vehicle hire options to larger sedans and SUVs, and electric vehicles, or EVs, for those who prefer them.

You will be able to use a single booking for your whole journey, taking your Avis car on the ferry across the Cook Strait between Wellington and Picton.

Pre-booking as early as possible is always the best policy when it comes to car hire, as well as commercial car and truck rental services. Booking earlier gives you access to the best price, and you have a larger range of availability to choose from.

To ensure a seamless start to your journey, our vehicles are rented with a full tank of fuel. It would be appreciated if the vehicle was also returned with a full tank; however, if this is not possible, a refuelling charge will be applicable. The option of pre-paid fuel is on offer at select locations, and the exact rate of the refuelling charge will be available upon vehicle collection.

Whether it's short-term car hire you're looking for a monthly or even longer, long-term car rental, we can help! Avis New Zealand offers rental durations for a few hours up to 11 months.
