New Zealand Car Rentals
New Zealand is well set up to explore by road. Once you go beyond the cities, you’ll enjoy the quiet open roads that come from a country that’s bigger than the UK but has a population of just under 4.5 million.
The roads are generally of a very high standard with all main routes well signposted. As you tour the country you might also come across flocks of sheep, slow-moving farm equipment and monstrous logging trucks, which can take longer to pass without the abundance of passing lanes.
