Unmatched car hire at Wellington Ferry Terminal

Wellington Ferry Terminal car rentalFor tourists taking a boat across the Cook Strait from Picton to Wellington, keep in mind that you have the ability to book an affordable New Zealand rental car at the Interislander Ferry Terminal through the Kemwel search engine! Equipped to transport both passengers and vehicles between the North and South Island, the facility has three “roll-on roll-off” vessels with Maori names: Aratere (quick path), Kaiarahi (leader) and Kaitaki (challenger).

While the port owned and managed by KiwiRail provides reliable inter-island travel service in New Zealand, this location will also be a focal point to arrange your Wellington car hire. Likewise, Wellington Airport car rentals could be another transportation option while visiting the Kiwi capital with plenty of spots to choose from with Kemwel!

At the end of the day, there’s actually no need to haul a car across the water since Kemwel guarantees the lowest car rental rates across New Zealand. In turn, this allows globetrotters to reserve rental vehicles on each major island, from Christchurch car rentals on South Island to Auckland car hire on North Island! One way or another, visiting Wellington certainly deserves a spot on your travel itinerary, especially with its robust cafe culture and surrounding nature. Alongside your Wellington car rental from Kemwel, newcomers to the Kiwi nation will be able to explore the area’s mesmerizing scenery from Makara and Sinclair Head beach to the nearby Putangirua Pinnacles in the Aorangi Ranges.

Although sheep may outnumber people in New Zealand, this Oceanic country is among one of the world’s most renowned travel destinations between epic mountains such as Mount Cook and big-game fishing at the Bay of Island. While the country provides touristic transportation services ranging from the Interislander ferry to a variety of scenic train rides, these modes tend to be expensive and adhere to strict timelines. In this regard, there’s no denying that renting a car in New Zealand through Kemwel would guarantee the utmost freedom to explore this verdant land.
