Car models and prices on cars-scanner

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

If you are a driver aged 25 to 65, consider yourself lucky. As a rule, it is this renter's age that establishes the strongest trust at a provider's office and is will result in your being charged at basic rates. Drivers under 25 and over 65 are often forced to pay an extra charge, whether there is an increasing factor and to what extent, you may find out on our website in the Age Restrictions section.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION

Local rental companies of New Zealand may require you to provide an international driving licence.

How to get an additional discount in New Zealand

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Available payment options

You may pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.

Deposit and credit card information


If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Speed limits in New Zealand

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Traffic violation fines

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to New Zealand, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in New Zealand. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Insurance, nuances and recommendations

When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.

Carefully read the insurance document; therein, you will find information about what it covers, and how to proceed if an occurrence happens after all.

I traveled all over the Baltics for business purposes. To save money, I decided to rent a car. In advance I found a suitable car and paid for the rental. I got it upon the arrival. I don't have any complaints about the reservation service and the rental company. I'm absolutely satisfied, as I managed to do everything I planned due to the mobility.

Several times this resource gave the most affordable options for car rental in different cities around the world, although others didn't see them at all. The search algorithm is excellent.

I've used this resource for car rental for several times and it has never let me down. It always select very good options. I like a large package of included insurance services. It differs significantly from other aggregators by the quality of operation. Several times I've compared and rechecked them. This search engine is the most accurate.
