Experience the natural beauty of New Zealand with a South Island rental car

With eight conveniently located car hire locations across New Zealand’s South Island, it’s easy to explore with Europcar, whether you’re beginning your journey at Christchurch Airport or starting further north in Nelson. Would you rather embark on a road trip from the bottom to the top? With car hire branches located in Dunedin and Invercargill, you can discover the South Island your own way with a Europcar rental.

Starting at the northern tip and making your way south? Our Picton City branch has a variety of vehicles to suit every taste and budget. Alternatively, pick up a car rental in Christchurch and make the short drive to the Air Force Museum, before diving into some jet boating in Canterbury. Looking for more adventure? Hit the road and head to Queenstown, New Zealand's home of extreme sports.

Don't miss your chance to swing by Dunedin and discover the city's dynamic art scene and splendid blend of Edwardian and Victorian architecture. Our award winning car rental service is also available in the southernmost points of the island, so why not pick up a great car hire deal in Invercargill where you can take in the Splash Palace and the city's beautiful heritage buildings?
