Auckland: North Shore Guide

North Shore, commonly called North Shore City or The Shore, is located in the Auckland region of New Zealand. The city has a population of over 215,000 people. This high number of inhabitants makes this city the fourth most populous in the country. It is also the fourth largest city by land measurement, having an area of almost 130 square kilometers. Almost all of North Shore City is urban or suburban, which makes this area very densely populated. This city is divided into three different wards, including Harbour, Northern and Central.

This city has recently upgraded and improved public transportation. The city can become congested with cars, making travel difficult. It is recommended that visitors and residents of North Shore make use of public transportation whenever possible. These efforts have made an improvement, but further facilities will be needed because of the growing population in the city.

The economy of Auckland is steadily growing. There are currently over 22,000 businesses in the city, providing thousands of jobs to the residents. The number of businesses continue to grow, making North Shore economically stable. As industry grows, so does the population. Residential development is ongoing. The East Coast Bays is one of the most expensive areas to live in New Zealand. Property in this area often sells for several million dollars. The reason for this is mainly location. The East Coast Bays are home to some of the finest beaches in the country, as well as some of the best schools.

North Shore is diverse; however, the population is mainly European. In recent years, there have been an increasing number of immigrants residing in North Shore from South Africa. Even with this increase, the residents of ethnic groups, aside from European, Asian and Pacific Islanders, are relatively low.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
