Top tips for hiring a car at Hamilton airport

  • If you’re looking for the perfect way to explore Hamilton, New Zealand, consider a car rental at Hamilton Airport, approximately 9 miles southwest of the city. Renting a car at the airport allows you to explore the city at your own pace and travel to places inaccessible by public transport. It also relieves the stress of moving to downtown rental locations with your luggage looking for a rental car. You can choose from different providers based in one location at the airport and drive comfortably to your preferred destination.
  • Getting a car rental at Hamilton Airport is less complicated. Different car rental agencies are available onsite. Upon arrival at Hamilton Airport, Walk straight to the car rental counters with all the required documents and present them to your provider. Once your documents are verified, and the paperwork is complete, you’ll be escorted or given directions to the pickup location, a short walk from the main Terminal. Carefully inspect the vehicle for any technical damages before starting your trip.
  • Returning the rented car to your Hamilton Airport car rental is generally easy. You can simply return it to the same pickup location or the drop-off point stated in your rental agreement. There is no need to worry if you’re not familiar with the airport. You’ll see different signs directing you to the parking lots, where you’ll find your company’s drop-off point. Make sure you return the vehicle within the agreed time to avoid a late return charge or penalty. Collect all your belongings from the car and conduct a final inspection to confirm if it’s in the right technical state. You can then proceed to the rental counters to hand over the keys. Avis and Budget have an easy drop-off system at Hamilton Airport. For after-hour returns, you can drop the keys and completed contract in a key drop location and leave. Your receipt and security deposit refund (if eligible) will be sent to you later.
  • Hamilton Airport can get busy during certain times of the year, especially from December to March, when most tourists flock to the city. Collecting or returning your rented car can be difficult during this period because of the long queues at the airport’s car rental area. You may also encounter long queues at the car rental facility on weekends, holidays, and popular festivals like Ramp Festival, Bastille Day Celebration, and Toi Ora ki Kirikiriroa Hamilton Arts Festival.
