6.0 Good21 Dec. 2018
New Zealand insurance terminology is very different from American terminology, so the true costs were almost double what we expected to pay. Kayak and Avis could have explained the differences.

Great car for comfort and lots of room for luggage

I was disappointed to pay more for an automatic. This seemed important for safety since I am used to shifting with the right.

Top tips for hiring a car in Picton

  • Existing as a key connection between the South and North Islands of New Zealand, hiring a car in Picton lets you drive directly onto ferries. The bus service from Picton to Blenheim that passes through the middle of town only operates twice per day in each direction, making a hire car a far better option for freedom of movement. Picturesque Bob’s Bay can be reached with a 7min drive; however, the closest bus stop is over 1 km away and requires a 15min walk. Other hidden coastal destinations can also be discovered, such as Whenuanui Bay, Shakespear Regional Park and Momorangi Bay, which are not connected by public transport.
  • Reception offices for companies including Avis, Budget, Hertz and Thrifty are located inside the terminal at Marlborough Airport (BHE). The hire car facility with parked vehicles is a short 50 m walk to the left once you exit the terminal building. No hire companies have branches at Picton Aerodrome (PCN); however, Ace Car Rentals can organise a shuttle to their office located inside the Picton Ferry Terminal.
  • There are many twists and turns on the coastal roads around Picton and it’s important to obtain a clear line of sight before overtaking. Fast-approaching vehicles may appear from behind blind corners and drivers should be careful not to veer across dividing lane markings. Wildlife often can be spotted on Picton roads at dusk with drivers required to slow down and give right of way to animals.
  • Traffic is peaceful in Picton compared to major cities throughout New Zealand and there’s no need to adjust your driving plans to avoid traffic. Congestion, however, can be noticed surrounding Picton Ferry Terminal as ships are loaded and unloaded, generally noticeable between 12:30–14:00 and 18:30–20:30. Picton experiences strong winds due to its seaside location, especially during spring, and it’s best to reduce speed to handle gusts.
