Many travellers to New Zealand wish to visit both the North and South Island. Some of our suppliers offer multi-hire deals where you can drop your first vehicle at the ferry terminal, take the Interislander Ferry, then pick up your second vehicle from the other side. No rental vehicles are permitted on the ferry, so if you plan on driving on both the North and South Island you will need two different cars. If you take the vehicle to another island, the fees can be expensive.
If you're unsure of how to transfer to another island and continue your journey, here is a quick guide to the two ferry terminals.
