Cambridge Guide

Car hire services in the town of Cambridge are some of the best guides you can visit when in need of ideas on what sights to see. While you're there you can rent a vehicle and being your adventures exploring the all that New Zealand has to offer. Located in the northern portion of the North Island, Cambridge is a great starting point for any road trip across the island, and to many of the amazing sights that are relatively close by.

Although you should seriously consider renting a vehicle from one of the affordable car hire services, Cambridge is actually know for its stables which house and breed thoroughbred horses. Many horses are champion racers and winners of show jumping competitions.

Located approximately 24 kilometers to the south east of the town of Hamilton, Cambridge sits comfortably on the banks of the locally famous Waikato River and with a population of roughly 15,00 residents, the town is actually nicknamed The Town of Trees. Although visitors often use Cambridge as a stopping point while on their way to somewhere else, it is suggested that you take your time while in Cambridge. With a small population and a tradition of horse breeding, the town is a nice change of pace from the fast speed of the big city. Car hire services in the town will enable you to drive all throughout the area and maybe even visit spots rarely ever seen by visitors.

One of the best rowing lakes in the world, Lake Karapiro is located close by and several world rowing champions trained at this very spot. World champions of other sports also train in this area, specifically Sarah Ulmer who won an Olympic Gold Medal in cycling. In fact, so many champions of different sports live near Cambridge that their nickname is sometimes changed to say, Town of Trees AND Champions.

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).
