As this is a fairly small town, there is only one NZ rental car supplier: Hertz on Liverpool Street. This means that rental cars may be subject to availability and the supplier may need to be contacted directly to book a car. But don't worry, we can do this for you. Here some reasons to book a rental car with VroomVroomVroom:
