Rentalcars.com to book Rental Cars
New Zealand is a spectacular country. and traveling by road to different cities and villages can be fun. Seeing this country by road is the best way of enjoying the landscapes. I’d highly recommend renting a car. The Indian license is valid for New Zealand as long as it’s in English language.
Rentalcars.com is a car rental search engine where you can compare rental car options from multiple players such as Europcar, Hertz, Avis, Dollar, Thrifty and many local players as well. The best thing about Rentalcars.com is the wide variety of options they provide. A very useful tool of all the travel resources for New Zealand.
Rentalcars also provides a very good insurance policy as compared to the direct car rentals. For INR 10,000 I got full protection cover for 7 days. It included everything from minor damage like tyre puncture to bigger damages like car getting wrecked. With the insurance amount of Rs 10,000, I got a car for Rs 17,000 so I paid a total of 27,000 for a 7 day car rental and that too one way!
Had I booked it through Avis or Hertz, I would have spent a lot more even without insurance. The reason I got a good deal was because the car was a bit older, but New Zealand roads are so awesome that my old car was also rolling like butter!
The fees for car hire include theft protection collision damage waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges, and other road fees. You can hire standard and full-size vehicles, and large SUVs. You can also hire commercial vehicles at budget rates. 24×7 customer support is available for reservations, roadside assistance, customer services, and tax receipts.
Make sure you read all the information along with the terms carefully and under any circumstances, do not drink and drive!
