Best Offers on Car Rentals in Wellington

Our Essential insurance options

Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a car with us.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the car, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. To view the detailed information see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website
