    We wanted to change our pickup/return times by just 2 hours. Your response ws to tell us the make a new booking and cancel the initial one: that seems like a clumsy way to make a minor amendment. However, each of those steps was surprisingly easy ... so not too bad after all!

    It’s been a simple process and allowed me to choose which vehicle and company suited me. I went on the website of the actual vehicle company I selected and it did not provide me with an option for insurance that Vroomvroomvroom provided me. Never used this site before so would be good to see how efficient it is when I actually pick up the vehicle.

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

Wellington Airport operates a single terminal and offers a range of on-site car rental brands to select from. See below for clear instructions on how to find Wellington Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Wellington Airport Terminal

  • Wellington Airport Terminal

    Wellington Airport has a single passenger terminal. As the airport only has one terminal, there is no need to worry about getting between terminals.

Pick up instructions

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

    International and Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport car desks are located on the ground floor inside the terminal, next to the baggage carousel.
  • 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

    International and Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire cars are parked just outside the terminal in the rental car park. This is just a short walking 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 Wellington Airport

  • On-airport

    To return your on-airport hire car, park in the rental car park area at Wellington 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-airrport rental cars, a courtesy shuttle service will take you directly to the designated drop-off point close to the terminal.

    For Apex you will need to return the vehicle to the depot located at 363 Broadway, Miramar. Apex will arrange your transfer to the terminal.

    For Go Rentals, return the vehicle to the depot located at 357 Broadway, Miramar.
