Driving your car rental in New Zealand Queenstown

Before driving away take some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is especially important if you're used to driving a manual gearbox on the other side of the road.

Driving in New Zealand Queenstown is on the left hand side of the road

If you'd like to drop off the car at a different location to the one you collected it from, all extra one way fees will be already included in the pricing detailed on the site.

Sometimes it's daunting the first time you hire a car in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Enjoy your vacation

If you plan take the car across the border to a different country, be careful to check the conditions of rental for cross border fees and to let the car rental company know. If you fail to do so there is a possibility that you will not be insured if you are involved in a situation where the car is damaged or stolen

Be careful if you're driving beyond the main cities in New Zealand to look out for animals in the road.

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be cautious with roundabouts. Be sure to navigate traffic circles using a clockwise direction, giving priority to vehicles already on the road circle to your right.

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We appreciate how daunting and frightening picking a car insurance product can be. The charges that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three levels of car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of our website when making a booking.

Many car hire websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really hinder your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
