Your adventure awaits: touring New Zealand in a Compact SUV

While it’s not crucial to rent a 4x4 when exploring Aotearoa, there are some tangible benefits to having the option to go off-road.

Our rugged terrain, steep hills, back roads, and varying weather conditions offer the perfect opportunity to rent a Compact SUV for your road trip. 

A winter journey from our Christchurch Airport branch across Arthur’s Pass is a breeze in a 4x4. Similarly, a drive across the North Island’s central plateau is more fun in an SUVWe’re stoked to enjoy the benefits of the traction control feature on our Compact SUV, especially when we take the windy road to Milford Sound.

If you’re visiting New Zealand during our world-famous ski season, it’s smart to add snow chains to your Compact SUV booking. While icy roads are significantly easier to handle in an SUV, it’s recommended by the government to carry snow chains, too.
