Free booking, no change or cancellation fees

When you book with Air New Zealand you'll always enjoy free booking. We also make it easy to modify or cancel your car reservation, and there are no amendment fees - although if you change the dates on your booking new rates may apply.

Easy international bookings

Some countries like the USA don't require car rental companies to include standard insurance in their rates. Air New Zealand takes the worry out of international car rental - every rate displayed on our site includes standard insurance. You can also add optional Excess Reduction and other cover to your booking (if you're paying by Airpoints Dollars you can purchase this directly from the car rental company when you collect your vehicle).
