Top Tips

  • New Zealanders drive on the left. If you are used to driving on the right-hand-side of the road, city driving may appear to be dangerous, especially at busy intersections. However, most accidents occur on country roads when the driver forgets which side they are supposed to be on.
  • If you intend to get away from the urban roads and explore off the beaten track, you will encounter gravel surfaces. Many of these roads are straightforward to negotiate providing you keep to an appropriate speed.
  • New Zealand roads take you through some beautiful parts of the country, so take plenty of breaks, step out of the car and admire the magnificent scenery.

Which companies offer best value in Wellington?

If you want to split the driving with someone else, some suppliers offer free additional drivers with their cars. Thrifty regularly have cars which come with an additional driver, while Ezi Car Rentals sometimes give you two additional drivers at no extra cost. However, we know there is more to good value than special offers; you also want to be sure the company can provide a great overall experience. To help you make your mind up when choosing who to rent with, we show reviews and ratings from past customers next to each listing.

Day trips from Wellington

Queen Elizabeth Park: Located approximately 50 kilometres from Wellington, Queen Elizabeth Park is one of the few remaining areas of natural dunes and wetland along Kapiti’s coast. Once an expanse of dune-land stretching from Paekakariki to Foxton, the 650-hectare area is a reminder of how much of the coastline appeared before large-scale human settlement. This idyllic beachside park is perfect for swimming, walking, cycling, horse riding and picnicking, and also boasts a fascinating tram museum with vintage trams running along the track to Whareroa Beach.

Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre: One of New Zealand’s most successful wildlife and captive breeding centres, the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre is situated around 125 kilometres from Wellington. Set in 940 hectares of reserve, the 90-minute guided scenic loop walk provides an in-depth understanding into the vital conservation work carried out here. The centre also boasts a kiwi house and aviaries for viewing other native birds. Visitors can see the tuatara and feed the eels at 1:30 every afternoon.

Cape Palliser: Situated 120 kilometres from Wellington, Cape Palliser is home to the North Island’s largest colony of fur seals. The area also boasts some of New Zealand’s most picturesque coastline, with magnificent sea views and stunning walks. The cast-iron lighthouse which has stood on the cliffs since 1897 can only be reached by climbing the 253 steps, and the view from the top is well worth making the effort.
