Why you should choose a rental car over a tour bus

Summer is known as the season of road trips in New Zealand. Being on the open road is a holiday in itself as time slows down and the stresses of everyday life slowly subside, releasing a feeling of euphoria as you get back to the simple life; reading, sunbathing and dipping in the ocean. The perfect summer road trip is made up of time, activities and above all else: freedom.

When you’re busy planning your next roadie, you’ll soon come across the dilemma of ‘method of transportation’. Some people might think outside the box a little and consider hiking enormous distances, cycling or even hitchhiking. But for most of us, we’re looking for something simple, easy, safe and cost-effective. That leaves us with two options: A tour bus or a rental car.

A tour bus offers you a seat on a communal bus with set destinations and a stringent timetable of arrival and departure times. It’s a way to travel the country with like-minded travellers with whom you will likely share most of your time. It’s a good way to meet people and share your travels but leaves you restricted to following the tour bus where it’s set to go.

A rental car on the other hand offers the much-needed freedom that road trips are made for. Hiring from the trusted NZ Rent A Car will allow us to meet your needs on price, freedom,  reliability and peace of mind. Our cars are affordable and can be driven anywhere – even off-road with our fleet of 4×4 SUVs. Without limiting yourself to time or place, your roadtrip can take exciting unexpected turns and impulsive decision making that can make a road trip a great one.

Benefits of hiring a rental car from us:

  • Freedom to drive where you want, when you want.
  • Unlimited kilometre allowance for car hires over 3 days.
  • One way car rentals are available, however, a minimum hire period and one-way fee may apply
  • All our car hire vehicles are covered by a Roadside Assistance programme giving you complete peace of mind when travelling.

With these options in mind, you’ll be sure to pick the best way to travel for you. If it’s freedom and security you’re looking for, there’s no better way to go than with a NZ Rent A Car hire vehicle. We’re looking forward to being there with you every step of the way. You can get in touch with us today to find out the best vehicle for you on your upcoming summer road trip. Contact us now.
