Top tips for hiring a car in Auckland

  • Explore the beauty of Auckland and enjoy maximum flexibility by renting a car immediately upon your arrival. The city with over 1.6 million people stretches from the Hunua Ranges Regional Park in the east to Waitakere Ranges in the west. Venture out into the iconic and scenic landscape of New Zealand with a car and reach your destinations quicker and easier.
  • Get to Auckland’s center in under half an hour after choosing your hire car directly at Auckland Airport. Located at the arrivals area, there is a car hire center which provides vehicles from companies like Avis, Europcar, or Hertz, among others. After the pick-up, follow the signs to State Highway 1 which will lead drivers directly into the heart of Auckland.
  • Note that in New Zealand, people drive on the left side of the road. Be especially careful when entering roundabouts and intersections, as you will have to remember to go clockwise and via the left lane. Drivers from countries without the metric system should also be aware that speed limits are given in kph rather than mph; however, the hire car will have the speedometer in kph on the display, so it should be no problem.
  • Auckland has daily rush hours where congestion is increased and delays can be up to an hour. Try to avoid going in or out of the city in the mornings between 7 and 9 AM, when the traffic is usually worst. Between 4 and 6 PM, workers returning home also increase the amount of traffic, so opting for times outside the given ones above saves energy and time. When you visit Auckland in winter, prepare for the conditions and order snow chains with the car, if necessary.

How are gas prices in Auckland?

The average price for petrol is $2.18 NZ ($1.47) per liter, which is ¼ gallon. Gas, among other items, is quite expensive in Auckland, but refueling at stations like Mobil will keep more New Zealand dollars in your pocket. These stations are dotted all around the city among other petrol stations like BP, Caltex, and Gull.

Where are the best places to park in Auckland?

From on-street parking to parking garages, Auckland offers various parking opportunities for hire cars. On-street parking is usually metered, so make sure to check the time restrictions, if there are any, and pay the amount of money required. For parking on nights and weekends, opt for the Chancery Car Park, or choose a parking lot like the Downtown car park in Customs Street West, or the Victoria Street car park, both of which cost about $24 per day.
