How do I pick up a rental car at Napier Airport?

There is one terminal and a range of on-site car rental brands to select from at Napier Airport. See below for clear instructions on how to find Napier Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Napier Airport terminal

  • Domestic Terminal

    Napier Airport has a single passenger terminal serving domestic flights.

Pick up instructions

  • Is your rental company desk on-airport or off-airport?

    Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport car desks are located in the arrivals area.
  • Finalise your rental agreement and collect keys

    Once you are at the hire car company desk, you’ll need to finalise your rental agreement and collect your vehicle keys.
  • Head to the designated car park to pick up your car

    Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport rental cars are parked outside the terminal — just cross the pedestrian crossings to reach the rental car park.
    Off airport
    If you booked with an off-airport provider, you’ll need to catch a shuttle to the car rental provider’s premises near the airport.
  • What should I do if the desk is unattended?

    Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.

    If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.

    If you still have no luck finding assistance, contact us. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned desks, and rest assured there’s usually someone who can help out in the car park where the rental cars are located.

    We'll be right back

Returning a hire car at Napier Airport

  • Domestic Terminal

    To return your on-airport hire car, park in the rental car park area at Napier Airport — it is just outside the terminal.

    Return your keys to the desk, and if the desk is unattended, or for after-hours returns, place the keys in the drop box located at the counter.
