“Or similar” refers to how our rental providers classify cars. Please be advised they cannot guarantee that a specific car model will be available. Partners categorise similar models into “vehicle groups” and confirm availability on this basis. Our team are available to contact the depot on your behalf where you are picking up your vehicle to enquire what models are available under the vehicle group you booked. Please contact customer support for further information.

Frequently asked questions

On hiring a car in Dunedin

  • How much does it cost to hire a car in Dunedin?

  • How much does it cost to hire a Minivan or People Mover in Dunedin?

    If you’ve got a crowd, but don’t need something as large as a bus, then a 7-seater or 8-seater Minivan hire might be your best option. A Minivan costs between NZD $439 and NZD $512 per day. Check for a live rate by entering your desired car hire dates in Dunedin.

  • Is it cheaper to book a weekly car rental in Dunedin?

    The per-day rates of some rental cars may fall if you book for a longer rental period. Prices often change around daily, three-day, five-day and seven-day periods. Also, note that the selection of rental cars available in Dunedin may be more limited if you are looking for a long-term car rental, so it’s best to compare a few different booking durations first.

  • Can I pick up my hire car in Dunedin and return it to a different location?

    Absolutely. You can pick up your hire car in Dunedin and drop off in another location. Just untick “Return to the same location” in our search form and select your preferred drop-off location. Take note that this will incur a one-way fee to your booking, which will be included in the total cost.
