Hamilton is a fast developing city on New Zealand's North Island. The city's large student population means it's led to a lot of modern attractions and cultural amenities springing up around the city, particularly in Hamilton Central. The Base is one of the countries biggest shopping malls, but for something more serene, Hamilton Gardens are viewed as one of the city's real treasures and major landmarks.
Hiring a car from Hamilton Airport is the best way to make the 10 minute transfer to the city. It gives you access Hamilton's Beaches and the famed Hobbit movie sets, as well as the natural wonders of the Waikato region.
Hamilton's attractions are spread over a fairly wide radius, so hiring a car from Hamilton Airport is highly recommended. The renowned Hamilton Gardens are a short drive south down the Waikato River, and if you're visiting the famous University of Waikato, you'll need to make the short drive east. The popular Base Shopping Centre is just north of the city. For local interest, the Waikato Stadium is fairly central, and the Waikato Museum is worth a look.
If you rent a car from Hamilton Airport, head east for Matamata and witness the outstanding countryside used for the Hobbit movies. Alternatively, head south for the sublime beauty of the Waitomo Caves.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
