PICK UP INSTRUCTIONS

DROP OFF INSTRUCTIONS

Dropping Off Between 6:00am - 8:00pm:

 

Dropping off your rental car at our Auckland Airport branch is super simple, the key things to remember are:

  • Make sure you have fueled up your vehicle to the same level as when you picked it up to avoid a refuelling charge ($25). The nearest gas station to our Auckland Airport branch is the Z station on Tom Pearce Drive​​

  • Make sure the vehicle is left in a clean & tidy state - we don't expect it to be fully groomed or anything, but a general clean and tidy will help to avoid an additional charge.

After checking the above, simply drop the keys off to the branch staff who will do a 2 minute final handover process and your away!

Our Airport Shuttle service does work both ways - simply ask for a lift back to the airport when dropping off your vehicle
