Our Dunedin car hire branch is part of the New Zealand Rent A Car network, offering affordable car hire from locations all over New Zealand.

New Zealand Rent A Car began in 1991 and has grown from 10 offices into a network of branches throughout New Zealand, from the top of the North Island at Whangarei to the lower South Island in Dunedin.

With its historic buildings, great shopping, scenic beaches, and eco-tourism attractions Dunedin has something to offer everyone. It is also a great staring point if you are planning to explore other areas of Otago.

The Dunedin car rental branch is located at 51 King Edward St, 10 minutes from the CBD. Our friendly staff are ready to help customers reach their destinations and can advise on the Dunedin area and its many attractions.

Dunedin Airport

Dunedin Airport Car Rental

NZ Rent a car provides a personal and friendly service at Dunedin Airport. We offer a contactless service which means you receive instructions on how to get to your car in advance. You have a short walk to your car and you get the key from a key box for which we have supplied you the code. You get the car and drive off, no long ques or waiting. This works at all times of the3 night and day.

Dunedin Airport is approximately 30km south of Dunedin City. The address is Miller Road, Momona.

We have a number of allocated spaces in the Rentals Carpark and when a customer returns a car to the airport the keys are placed in a drop box attached to a pole in our spaces. There is no need for time consuming check ins and the system works quickly and with a minimum of effort from the customer. We give full instructions to the customer regarding pick up and drop off procedures.

Although there is a modest ‘airport fee’ the fee is much cheaper and convenient than airport shuttles or other paid methods of transport to and from the airport. All fees are shown on our web site.

We also have a stream lined system for customers arriving on the ‘mid night’ flights which greatly facilitates their access to the vehicle and there departure from the airport. Again full details of the procedure are given to customers in advance.

We do not require several days advance notice of bookings and we try to provide a service, where possible, with short term notice. We also do not have a minimum length of hire. We pride ourselves on taking short and long term bookings with limited notice and with convenience to our customers.

We are generally the cheapest rental car supplier at Dunedin Airport across most categories and all our cars are clean, reliable, safe and well maintained. We pride ourselves as normally being able to take short or long-term bookings at short notice. We have a wide range of vehicles from small cars up to 12 seat mini-buses.
