Corporate Bookings

Standard Motor Vehicle Insurance is mandatory on all Avis leisure rentals, but contracted corporate rates and insurance coverages may differ.

Please Note: If you require additional insurance coverage you may purchase locally to reduce/remove the insurance excess. Just ask at the Avis rental desk when you collect your vehicle.

Multi Island Hires

Customers wishing to travel between the North and South Islands are not permitted to take Avis rental vehicles on the Inter islander Ferry across Cook Strait. To allow for this type of inter-island travel Avis has introduced a special rental system called a Multi-Island Hire which creates one continuous rental. If you require a Multi-Island Hire, the following rental conditions apply:

  • A minimum rental of 3 consecutive days is required on each island, with a minimum total of 6 days across both islands. If this requirement is not met the rental will be charged as two separate hires.
    • Exceptions:
      For all wagons, 4WD's and vans, the minimum rental requirement is 5 consecutive days on each island (ie. a minimum total rental of 10 days across both islands).
  • If you are traveling more than once between the two islands, the third (and subsequent) rental period has no minimum length of rental requirement.
  • The rental can start and finish at any Avis location in New Zealand (subject to vehicle availability).
  • You can cross between the two islands using the Picton Ferry Terminal and the Wellington Ferry Terminal, or you can fly into cities where Avis is located. Note: this policy only applies if you are traveling to the other island, not to a location within the same island.
  • A maximum of 5 hours is allowed between the drop off of the vehicle in one island and the pick up of the next vehicle.
  • A minimum of 48 hours notice is required of the customers intention to cross between the islands if a crossover booking has not been previously made. If notice is not given, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be available on the other side.

It is important to note that no Avis vehicle is allowed to cross Cook Strait between the North and South Islands. Any customer taking a vehicle across on the Inter-islander ferry will not be covered by insurance for any damage occurred to the vehicle. If they collect a car in one island and leave the vehicle in the other island location without Avis authorization, you will face an automatic relocation fee of NZ$450.00 plus GST.

Travel Into Other Countries

Vehicles are not permitted to leave New Zealand.
