How old do you have to be to rent a car in Wellington?
If you’re aged 21 and over, you can rent a car in Wellington. Bear in mind that rental outlets will charge young drivers an extra fee, which helps cover the higher damage or accident risk involved. Also, young drivers are usually restricted from renting luxury or specialty vehicles. Read through the terms and conditions before you book to avoid any surprises when you pick up the keys.
What do you need to rent a car in Wellington?
Any rental company you select will require two things — a valid driver’s license and credit card. If you decide to opt out of the provider’s insurance plan, proof of other coverage will also likely be needed. Read your policy thoroughly so you know what to bring when it’s time to pick up the keys.
What side of the road do you drive on in Wellington?
Unlike the U.S, motorists in Wellington drive on the left side of the road. Having the driver’s seat and some controls on the opposite side can also take some getting used to. Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the car before starting your journey.
What is the cheapest car rental in Wellington?
We looked into prices over the last seven days and found that the cheapest daily rate was $22. The second lowest price to rent a set of wheels in Wellington was $24 a day. These rates were available on Expedia, with a rental starting date within the next year. Prices and availability are subject to change and additional terms apply.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Wellington?
You can. We partner with trusted companies that offer weekly and monthly rentals for all types of cars. Take a look at our long-term car rental deals and explore every turn of Wellington — or beyond!
Where can I find a Wellington car rental if I am younger than 25?
Some Wellington providers will rent cars to drivers under 25 years of age, and others won’t. Policies differ from supplier to supplier, so you’ll need to do your homework. Also, find out if there are additional costs. Some outlets will apply a surcharge to young customers between the ages of 21 and 24. Always check the terms and conditions so you know what to expect.
What insurance should I choose for my car rental in Wellington?
A thorough insurance policy is a great idea for your Wellington trip. That’s why we recommend opting in to collision protection while organizing your rental car with Expedia. This insures your vehicle against theft, vandalism and collision damage. Some destinations may also require a minimum level of liability insurance. This may already be included in your rental cost or your own auto insurance, so check what you’re covered for.
