Cheap car rental Wellington Airport (WLG)

Best car rental rates Wellington Airport New ZealandNot only do travelers heading to North Island in New Zealand have cheap car rental rates in Auckland and Auckland Airport but also the Wellington Airport, the third-busiest in the nation! Geographically speaking, the capital city of Wellington lies on the southwestern tip of the island between the Cook Strait and the Remutaka Range. Hailed as the “coolest little capital in the world” by Lonely Planet, a Wellington car rental or even a vehicle from the nearby Wellington Ferry Terminal would be an effective means to tour this highly livable and progressive city. Besides being the world’s southernmost capital, it also has a robust cafe and restaurant culture with over 400 local establishments, all of which can be visited equipped with a cheap New Zealand car rental through the Kemwel booking engine. With an urban population of over 200,000, this puts Wellington on the same level as New York City on a per capita basis!  

Even more interesting, outside of this hub is where travels can visit famous filming locations from the Lord of the Rings movies! One of these includes the Putangirua Pinnacles in the Aorangi Ranges, which was included in the Path of the Dead sequence in The Return of the King. This is also where visitors will encounter the largest number of hoodoos, or natural earth pillars found at the bottom of arid drainage basins, otherwise known as badlands. Other Kemwel travel tips include stopping by the Red Rock nature preserve, in addition to hiking up Mount Kaukau for some unforgettable scenic vistas.

Reserve a cheap New Zealand car rental with Kemwel

There’s no denying that international car rentals tend to overwhelm travelers, whether due to hidden fees or poor customer assistance. Knowing this all too well, the Kemwel team has dedicated itself to improving the booking process for global car hire. While we offer free cancellation within 72 hours of scheduled pick-up, what truly sets us apart from our competitors is our commitment to price optimization and superior customer service. From New Zealand car rentals to short-term car leases in Australia, we guarantee the lowest rates in over 20,000 locations, including Queenstown, Kerikeri, Christchurch and other major Kiwi transportation hubs, such as our Bay of Island Airport car rental options!

All the while, travelers heading to New Zealand for business, study or vacation also have an assortment of vehicles to choose from for pristine navigation between localities and top-notch destinations. Worthy to visit will be the town of Rotorua in Te Puia’s Whakarewarewa Valley. Sacred among the Maori, this town hosts the Pohutu Geyser that catapults steaming water 30 meters into the air multiple times a day! Thermal pools and natural spas can also be enjoyed throughout this area, all of which are only accessible via automobile due to the remote rural settings.
