Travel South to North and Save!

New Zealand is made up of two main islands with a stretch of water (and ferries) in between. Many international visitors planning to travel around both islands fly into Auckland (North Island) pick up a rental car and drive in one direction – south, crossing between the islands on a ferry and finishing their trip by flying out of Christchurch or Queenstown (South Island). One Way hires often incur one way fees, but they don’t have to….. Flip your trip and fly into Christchurch or Queenstown then drive north to Auckland and you can save $$’s with no one way fee being applied to your hire. Enter your travel details in the booking engine above for a quote and availability.
