Here’s a list of questions I am frequently asked (if you have a question to add to this list, add it to the comments section below):
Q: “What are the location limitations of rental car relocation’s?”
Mostly limited to the major centers of, Auckland, Wellington, Christchuch and Queenstown. You will often have to travel from the South island to the North too.
Q: “How much will the insurance excess be?”
Often the insurance excess will be up to $1000 NZD and not negotiable!
Q: “Do i need a special license to drive the campervans?”
No, as long as your license is in English or you have a sworn translation from your embassy then you will not need a New Zealand license.
Q: “Are ferry costs included? ”
Sometimes ferry costs are included other times they are not, this simply depends on the supplier and their terms.
Q: “How long do you have to book ahead?”
Often booking in the weeks leading up to the booking will be sufficient however this changes with the type of relocation.
Q: “Fuel, who pays for it?”
Sometimes the relocation deal will have a fuel allowance this is often just a contribution towards your trip and not the entire amount required for the trip, any fuel used in excess of this will have to be paid for from your own back pocket!
Q: “Are the campervans fully equipped?”
The campers are generally fully equipped with the odd exception of sometimes having a linen hire on top of the other fees.
Q: “Who can do a rental car relocation?”
Often you will need a clean drivers license and be over the age of 21 and under the age of 75 unless you have a recent medical certificate.
Q: “What does it feel like to do a rental car relocation?”
Fantastic! What could be better than seeing New Zealand’s beautiful countryside on a shoe string budget?
Q: “How do I make sure I don’t miss out?”
If you are not prompt when relocation deals come up you might miss out completely!
