One-way rental: Return rental car to another location
With the one-way rental you can easily return your rental car at another location. The one-way rental is ideal for New Zealand trips that start in Wellington and end in Auckland, for example. Simply enter your desired destination in the search mask at the return location.
Plan enough buffer time for the return of the rental car. Depending on the selected refueling regulation, you must fill up your rental car accordingly. In principle, we recommend to always choose the fair tank regulation full / full. With this you return the rented car with the same fuel level as you picked it up. After you have parked the rental car on the area of the car rental company, an employee of the car rental company will check the condition and fuel level. If everything matches the time you picked up the rental car, the retained deposit amount will be returned to you.
Returning the rental car outside opening hours
It is possible to return the rental car in Wellington outside opening hours. Car rental agencies at airports are often open around the clock. If the car rental agency is closed for return, there is usually a separate safe or mailbox where you can leave the car key. As soon as the car rental office opens, an employee of the car rental company will inspect the rental car. Should everything match the time of pickup, the deposit amount will be fully released again.
