Classes of cars and cost of rent

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. Visit the Age Restrictions section to find out how a driver of your age group is charged when booking.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION

At the rental company office, you may be required to provide an international driving licence.

How to get an additional discount in New Zealand

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Available payment options

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.


If such a requirement does exist, and you are the holder of a debit card, it is not a problem. Many banks issue debit cards, which are listed as credit cards in the system and have zero limit. Check your card type on www.bindb.com by entering the first 6 digits.

Speed limits in New Zealand

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Traffic violation fines

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to New Zealand, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in New Zealand. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Cover terms and conditions. Size of the franchise. Security deposit

When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.

Carefully read the insurance document; therein, you will find information about what it covers, and how to proceed if an occurrence happens after all.

In addition, for your convenience, we prepared a table with information on the amount of deposit from popular car rental companies in New Zealand

Extra charge for car return in other city

You may take a car to New Zealand and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.

Cancellation and modification of order

If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.

We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.

Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.

Very dishonest! We booked an economy car (5 seats and 2 luggage) and got a mini car (4 seats and 1 luggage) and cars-scanner claims that they are of the same category when it clearly isn't - even as displayed on their own website. Can't bother taking legal action, just will never use their service again. This has never has happened to me before. Stay away.

I booked a car for my family trip in Check Republik via this company. They provide a good service for searching and comparing car rental prices. My experience of renting from them added some more good impressions from my trip.
