One way rentals in New Zealand

One-way car rentals are a great way to see the country. It means you can fly into a big city like Christchurch or Auckland and out of another. You can pick up the car in one place and leave it in another.

In New Zealand, the popular way to do this is to fly into Auckland and depart from Christchurch. This gives you many impressive landscapes and adventures on your travels. I’ve rounded up some of the best things I think you should see on your trip during your New Zealand rental car tours. This is just one of the many trips you could take.

1. Fly to Auckland: visit the sky tower and do the famous bungee jumping from the harbor bridge

2. Drive North to Paihia – Paihia is a wonderful seaside town where you can relax and enjoy the shops and the beach. You can snorkel wonderfully and also the famous boarding through the Te Paki sand dunes.

3. Drive South to Rotorua – Rotorua is a resort town with plenty of adventure activities. You can try Zorbing (rolling down a hill on a big plastic ball), mountain biking, swimming in thermal pools, visiting thermal mud geysers or getting pampered at day spas.

4. Drive to Taupo – visit Huka Falls and see New Zealand’s largest lake. Punt the hole-in-one on the lakefront in Taupo City. This golf is a little different, you launch from the land with the hole in a pontoon in the lake.

5. Drive to Wellington – visit the National Museum of New Zealand – Te Papa and then continue your journey on the Interislander ferry to Picton. Enjoy the beauty of the Marlborough Sounds.

6. Drive to Nelson – While you’re in the north of the South Island, there’s plenty to do. You can walk the Able Tasman track, visit the beautiful Kaiteri beach or Golden Bay.

7. Drive to Kaikoura – See New Zealand fur seals and take a real New Zealand whale watching tour off the Kaikoura coast.

8. Drive to Christchurch: Drive an hour from Christchurch to Akaroa, a small town that has a French vibe. Here you can go to one of Christchurch’s best attractions: swim with the dolphins in the harbour, have a delicious meal and relax.

That will be the end of your wonderful New Zealand trip! I hope you enjoy it as there are so many other places to see. Next time you can see wonderful Central Otago including Queenstown and Wanaka and the west coast with the glaciers.
