As New Zealand?s capital city, Wellington is a bustling harbour city. With countless cultural attractions, beautiful scenery and fine food, there?s really no wonder why Wellington is such a robust travel destination.
Although Wellington?s Downtown is quite compact, it certainly doesn?t miss the mark where attractions are involved. The mixture of architecture here makes Wellington truly unique ? from 19th century cottages to Art Deco inspired buildings ? this city has it all. If you?re really looking to immerse yourself in New Zealand?s culture, hire a car in Wellington and drive out to the southeast side of the city.
The beautiful region of Wairarapa is located an hour?s drive north of Wellington. This is a rural part of New Zealand which offers travellers a more off the beaten track tourist experience. Have a drive out on the coastal roads through to Cape Palliser ? here you can enjoy the panoramic views while watching the seal colonies. There are so many hidden gems in this region of New Zealand, The Putangirua Pinnacles are some of the best examples of badlands erosion in the country. If you?re hiring a car from Wellington you can reach the Pinnacles in under two hours.

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.
