Hokitika Airport Guide

When you land at Hokitika airport you will discover some of the most affordable car hire rates available anywhere in New Zealand. Simply find a local service and your trip will always begin on a great note. If you are here for business, you may decide that driving yourself around town is much more preferable than simply finding a taxi every time you want to go somewhere.

Hokitika is a popular destination visited by many tourists everywhere. The Hokitika airport is consistently busy with daily flights. Located west of the Southern Alps, and west of the Coast Heartland, when you visit Hokitika you will experience culture that cannot be found anywhere else. It is small town consisting of approximately 3,500 residents, finding a taxi may even be difficult - best to find a car hire service and take care of transportation on your own.

With a beautiful beach and a sometimes wild river, Hokitika is in the middle of rainforests and wetlands. It rains here, a lot. Even with roughly same number of sunshine hours as Auckland and Christchurch, Hokitika also experiences 2800 mm per year of rainfall - much more than a lot of other cities.

Although the skies to get cloudy when the rain comes, once they clear up, look to the south and you will see Mt. Cook, and Mt. Tasman. These are two of New Zealand's highest mountains and their traditional names are Aoraki and Horo Kawau, respectively. Car hire rental is ideal for driving to the base of each mountain for a closer look.

When you fly into the Hokitika airport you will probably notice many shops selling jewelry and artifacts made with pounamu. This is greenstone, or sometimes called New Zealand jade. Historically this region has been an important source for the stone and its interesting properties. Pounamu can be made to have an edge which is as hard as steel, but still retain a unique beauty. Who knows, maybe if you get a vehicle from a car hire service you will find some to take home!

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?
