Our Wellington Airport car rental options

Take our free shuttle bus for only five minutes to reach our Wellington Airport branch. We offer great convenience, legendary customer service, and a range of hire cars to suit your New Zealand travel needs.   

Wellington is more than just New Zealand’s capital city. It’s the gateway to the lower North Island’s national parks, remarkable heritage sites, and a landscape that has made us famous (via the big screen).  

We know you’re here to experience the best the region has to offer, whether that’s with your mates, your family, or even on making those work sales calls.  

From our stylish SUVs to our low-cost cars, we are committed to delivering excellent customer service. No matter if you call us, book online, or visit our Wellington branch!  

Are you ready for your JUCY adventure? 

When you’re ready to pick up your JUCY rental car, follow these instructions:

  • We offer a free shuttle to take you from Wellington Airport to our branch. The journey is about 10 minutes. To request a ride, call 0800 399 736 or +64 9 929 2462 and follow the phone directions. Select Wellington when you hear the shuttle prompt.
  • You’ll then need to walk to our shuttle meeting point. It’s on the ground floor, by the Subway restaurant near the baggage claim area. Wait by the exit door by Subway and a uniformed JUCY crewmember will find you and take you to the shuttle bus.
  • The last shuttle bus leaves the airport at 4.15pm, 45 minutes before our branch closes.

If you’re dropping off your JUCY rental car, you can hop on the next shuttle bus heading to the Subway restaurant at Wellington Airport. The last shuttle to the airport departs at 4.15pm, also.

You’ve arrived in Wellington and you’re ready to get this road trip started! Here’s how to reach us to pick up your JUCY hire car 

  • From Wellington Airport, you can grab a seat on our free shuttle bus from the airport terminal to our branch. Check the JUCY airport shuttle tab to the left of this for all the deets.  
  • If you’re travelling from Wellington city centre or further afield, you’ll need to make your own way to us. From downtown, it’s only a 6km drive, which should take around 15 minutes in light traffic. Do add in a buffer, as traffic jams in Wellington are not unheard of. The Airport Hopper bus is an affordable way to get to us, connecting at the airport with our free shuttle bus. For those with no bags, buses no. 2, 11, 43 and 44 can be boarded at 77 Manner Street, though you’ll have to get off at the Rongotai Rd and Troy Street intersection and walk 600m to get to our branch. If you’re looking for the fastest getaway, a cab should be around $30.  

After-hours pick-up 

If you’ve pre-booked an after-hours pick-up for your JUCY rental car, you’ll need to read this:  

  • For airport arrivals, call Park N Depart on +64 27 837 4372 to request a free shuttle transfer. You’ll be advised of your pick up meeting point and time. The driver will take you to the Park N Depart depot, where your JUCY vehicle will be waiting.  
  • If you are making your own way to your after-hours pick-up, you’ll need to head to Park N Depart. The address is 57 Kingsford Smith Street, Rongotai, Wellington, 6022.  
  • No matter how you arrive, once you’re at the Park N Depart depot, you’ll need to show your rental vehicle agreement and valid driver’s license to the staff there. They will then hand you your JUCY car keys, along with an envelope with all the relevant info for your booking.  
  • If you require any assistance, please call us on 0800 399 736. To enquire further if you qualify to add an after-hours pick-up to your booking (there is a $30 fee), please call or email us

We know it’s sad when your road trip ends so we’ll do all that we can to make it a happy-sad bon voyage. Here’s the low-down on your JUCY car hire drop off.  

  • Before you reach our Wellington Airport branch, you’ll need to make sure you have fuel.  
  • Before locking the car, check you’ve got all your belongings. Even those sunglasses that have rolled under the seat. Please, also put your rubbish in the bin.  
  • Hand the keys to our awesome JUCY crew. If you’re heading to the airport, let them know if you want a spot on the next shuttle bus – it’s free!  

After-hours drop-off 

If you’re ghosting us and dropping off without saying goodbye (aka, an after-hours drop off), take note: 

  • Fuel up somewhere in the 10km before you reach our JUCY Wellington Airport branch.  
  • Park your rental car in the spaces on the driveway, or out on Jean Batten Street, in front of the building. Be sure not to park on any yellow lines or block any vehicles 
  • Have a quick check around your car to make sure you’ve got everything. That means all your chocolate wrappers and empty L&P bottles too, please.  
  • Lock your vehicle and drop the keys in the hole to the right of the main JUCY entrance doors. It’s signposted!  

Please note, only cars can be dropped off at our Wellington Airport branch out of hours.

Travelling with JUCY from our Wellington Airport branch

You’ve won the vote, and you’re heading to New Zealand. Heck yeah! Now you need to know how to maximise your time driving around Aoteroa’s stunning mountains, lakes, towns, and cities. Wellington is a fantastic start point for either a North or South Island adventure.  

If you’re heading north, the coastal route up the North Island’s East Coast offers pinch-me scenery and iconic destinations. Look up Napier, Gisborne, Mount Maunganui, and the Coromandel on Instagram to discover what we’re talking about.  

If the South Island is calling, you’re only a 3-hour Inter-island ferry ride across the Cook Strait to Picton. Here, you’ll find the entry point to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, or you can drive south to reach Kaikoura, where whales frolic in the choppy waters. Want to kayak near New Zealand’s sunniest city? The Abel Tasman is one of the country’s most popular national parks.  

With so much to explore and cram into your Kiwi vacay, we understand the importance of getting you on your way as efficiently as possible. We pride ourselves on our customer service. Our Wellington Airport branch location is primed to do that. Only a short (free) shuttle ride away from the airport, you’ll be sitting behind your JUCY wheels in no time!   

We can’t wait to be a part of your Kiwi journey.
