Price inclusions

When you book a rental car in New Zealand, there will be certain taxes and charges that are already included in the cost. The inclusions and exclusions may be slightly different depending on which car rental provider and which location you are hiring your car from. Feel free to contact our Customer Care Team to find out what is included and what is excluded from your rate.

  • GST, airport taxes and any applicable premium location fees.
  • Basic insurance cover (Loss Damage Waiver). An excess amount will still apply, which renters are liable to pay if any damage is caused to the vehicle.

What Is Not Included in the Price?

Here is a list of some of the general exclusions from your car rental rate:

  • Excess reduction products which can be purchased at the counter to protect your financial liability.

Excess Reduction Products Are Not Included in Your Rental Rate

You can reduce your financial liability by purchasing excess reduction products at the counter, or buying Rental Vehicle Excess Insurance in advance.
