Hertz in New Zealand

Located in the south-western area of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is an island of incredible natural beauty. The landscape here is notably diverse, with jagged mountain ranges, greenery, scenic beaches and fish-filled lakes New Zealand offers tourists adventure and nature mixed with modernity. For native forests and pristine hot springs, you should head over to Rotorua. This city is easily accessible if you're hiring a car in New Zealand. Escape the confines of the city and visit Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest; or get a true insight into New Zealand's heritage with a trip to Tamaki Maori Village.

The shore side town of Taupo lies in the north island of New Zealand. It's home to some of the country's most spectacular water falls. Huka Falls is a great spot to see the Waikato River shooting down the ravine. Here you can wonder through the winding walking trails dotted around Huka Falls. If you fancy a long road trip from Huka falls, then hire a car in New Zealand and head to Taupo Bay. You can get here via the SH 1, it takes approximately 7 hours to reach by car but you can stay in Taupo Bay for free. Tourists can camp for free right on the water and take in the stunning scenery.

Before visiting this beautiful country it's important to read up on road rules and driving behaviours. New Zealanders drive on the left hand side of the road and give way to their right. You'll notice a great deal of scenic driving routes here which mainly compromise of hilly, narrow and winding roads. The open road speed limits are 100km/h and 50km/h in built-up urban areas. It's customary to carry your driving license with you at all times. In New Zealand, distances may appear shorter on the map. Ensure you give yourself plenty of time to arrive at a destination as a lot of the roads are narrow, it usually takes a lot longer than initially anticipated.
