JUCY Car Rental in Auckland City

As an international hub and the economic heart of the country, many journeys start and end in our beloved Auckland city. It’s why we opened our first branch here back in 2001! 

Located only a short walk from downtown Auckland, our city branch is the most convenient way to pick up your wheels and get your New Zealand adventure started! 

Whether you’re looking for our cheapest car rental or for a stylish SUV to navigate the country’s highlights, we’re committed to delivering our award-winning JUCY service. It’s the kind you write about on your postcard home to Mum. Are you ready to go on JUCY adventure with us? 

We’re close to the action for all your Auckland car rental needs. But how to get here?  

  • From Queen Street, in downtown Auckland, it’s only a 15-minute walk, 5-minutes in an Uber, or hop on the Link bus.  
  • If you’re staying at JUCY Snooze, we have a free shuttle bus – score! It’s only a 10-minute ride (if the Auckland traffic gods are playing nice), but you do need to book it at least 24 hours in advance. You can do this by calling our freephone number on 0800 399 736, or by emailing us 

If you’re looking to pick up your car out of our office hours, you’ll need to follow these instructions: 

  • Head to the JUCY branch at 2 – 16 The Strand, Parnell, Auckland.  
  • When you book your after-hours pick-up, you’ll receive a 4-digit code. You’ll need to use this to access the pedestrian gate (it’s the second set of gates to your right).  
  • On the whiteboard, you’ll find your last name and vehicle registration.  
  • You’ll need to use the last four digits of your JUCY reservation number to unlock the lockbox to get your keys. For example, if your number is R0000001234, your lock code will be 1234.  
  • Take a look around for your assigned vehicle registration, once you have found your car, you’re on your way! Let the travels begin!

Drop off is as easy as! Check the following: 

  • Fuel up before you bring your car back. You can’t miss the nearest gas station to the Auckland City branch.  
  • Remove all your belongings and any rubbish.  
  • Lock your car and hand the keys to our awesome JUCY crew.  

If you’re dropping off after hours, follow these instructions: 

  • Fuel up.  
  • Park your car along the street from the branch, on Ronayne street, or park on Ngaoho Place (opposite VTNZ). Check the meter and pay any fees necessary.
  • Clear the vehicle of your luggage and remove any rubbish.  
  • Lock the car and place the keys in the hole in the wall. It’s on the side of the building closest to the Strand.   

Please note campervans cannot be returned to our Auckland City location.

JUCY’S Other Car Rental Locations

Why JUCY is Auckland City’s preferred car rental provider

When you’re ready for an adventure on New Zealand’s highways and byways, you want just to GO! That’s why our downtown Auckland location is the go-to branch after time spent exploring the city. We’re only a short walk from the vibrant waterfront, multicultural eateries, and bustling Queen Street shopping area.  

One minute you’re sipping a flat white and smashing brekkie at Britomart; fifteen minutes later, you’re looking at your JUCY wheels and planning your road trip snacks. We aim to give you the freedom, confidence and convenience you need to make your dream trip happen, all at an affordable price point.  

We pride ourselves on our customer service standards, too. Sometimes a cheap car rental means corners are cut. It’s not how we operate – we don’t see why you have to compromise, do you?  

Renting a JUCY car allows you to set your own pace on your New Zealand travels. Whether it’s the El Cheapo budget wheels or our SUV 4WD models, you have the flexibility to drive, stop, and rest as you please. Want to stop at the world’s largest L&P bottle on your way to Tauranga? No problem! Changed your mind and want to stay in Taupo to skydive? You’re the boss!   

Travelling New Zealand by car is fab in any season, but we do love driving across the country during our Kiwi summer best. We’re not the only ones so do book ahead to ensure you get the JUCY rental car of your choice, especially for December and January travels.
