    Car Rental Dunedin

    Dunedin Car HireThe city of Dunedin is spread out across the hills and valleys in the Otago Harbour area. The region is known for its amazing national parks and the views will be a memory to treasure. Driving through Dunedin in your car hire is not just a drive, it's an experience.

    Looking for a different type of adventure? Visit the Larnach Castle to discover a magnificent castle and the surrounding grounds which are filled with beautiful flora and fauna. Drive through the Otago Peninsula and stop over at one of the many local wineries to taste some local wines paired with decadent cheeses. If you're travelling in summer then a trip to the beach is a must, even in the south island! Head to Tunnel Beach which is accessible through a man-made tunnel!

    Frequently Asked Questions about Hiring a Car in Dunedin


    How far is Dunedin Airport from the Dunedin CBD?

    Dunedin Airport is about a 30-minute drive from the Dunedin CBD.

    Can I use my own licence to drive in New Zealand?

    Most countries allow drivers to drive simply utilising their domestic license. However, some car hire providers may not require an international driver's permit (IDP), Auto Europe recommends an IDP for all travellers. When driving without an IDP, there's a risk that local police officers may issue you a ticket - if you happen to be stopped.

    Can I rent a car in Dunedin if I am under 25?

    In Dunedin, if you are between the ages of 21-25 you'll be able to rent a car with no fuss. However, drivers in this age range should expect that they may likely be subject to an additional daily charge commonly called "young driver surcharge." Depending on your car hire supplier, additional fees will vary and in some cases, may not even apply.

    Crossing the border in New Zealand

    Since New Zealand is an Island, crossing the border in your vehicle hire is going to be a real challenge. However, if you'd like to travel from the north to the south island you will need to talk to your car hire supplier. Some car hires are restricted and are not allowed on the ferry. Keep in mind that one-way fees may apply when you drop off your car hire in a different city. You can contact us for more information on one-way hires.
