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

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

Nelson Airport Terminal

  • Domestic Terminal

    Nelson Airport has a single passenger terminal serving domestic flights, so there is no need to worry about getting from one terminal to the other.

Pick up instructions

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

    Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    You will find the on-airport hire car desks at Nelson Airport located outside the terminal, just a short walk from the terminal.
  • 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 hire cars are parked in the rental car parking area, just a short distance from the car rental desks.
    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 Nelson Airport

  • On-airport

    To return your on-airport hire car, follow the signs and park in the rental car park area at Nelson 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.

  • Off-airport

    For off-airport rentals, a courtesy shuttle service will take you directly to the designated drop-off point close to the airport terminal.

    For Apex, you will need to return the vehicle to their Nelson Airport depot located at 12 Quarantine Road, Nelson.
