  • It is your responsibility to collect accurate third party details in the event of an accident, regardless of what excess reduction cover you have taken, and regardless also of fault.
  • If Stress Free Plus excess reduction is not taken, and roof/rooftop pod damage or single vehicle rollover incident occurs, a charge of up to $5,000 will apply to cover damage to the JUCY vehicle and any third party vehicle and/or property. 
  •  If Risk Taker excess reduction is chosen:

All or part of this bond will be claimed by JUCY in the event of an accident and will be retained until the value of the damage is determined. Any balance between the bond and the damage cost will be returned as soon as is practical.
    • Any costs to repair damage caused by a third party may not be recoverable as insurance is not compulsory in New Zealand.

New Zealand your way in our SUVs

Get 4x the fun when you rent a 4WD! Whether it’s the trip of a lifetime, your 10th time visiting, or you call New Zealand home, exploring on your own terms is smart. That means you can go where how far you want (we have unlimited mileage to help you there), and where you want (4WD, baby!), at a price you can afford.

Our most popular vehicle in winter, our SUV has all the traction you’d expect from a 4WD. Plus you can add a roof rack to your booking for your skis and boards!

The SUV’s handling is yours to enjoy when you’re driving our windy mountain passes. It sure takes the pressure off the drive when you know that no matter the terrain, you’re in control. There are a ton of other safety features too. 

Did you know that Dunedin has New Zealand’s steepest street? Or how sheer the road is from Christchurch to Akaroa’s Bank’s Peninsula? While you can manage most of these in a 2WD, a 4WD makes for an effortless ride.

We’re still talking 4s! Your only four simple steps away from booking an SUV for your Kiwi adventure. Click on the book now button above, or give our team a call on 0800 399 736.
