Palmerston North Airport Guide

Palmerston Airport is situated on the outskirts of Milson, five kilometers northeast of the Palmerston North, New Zealand. Initially constructed as a grass runway in the early 1930s, the airport has evolved from an airstrip used only by private planes to hosting several bigger aircrafts and jet such as the Boeing 737s and 767s.

To celebrate the expansion of new runways, 10 people set a new Guinness World Records on May 17, 1998 by towing a fully fueled Boeing 737-300 over a distance of 100 meters. Tourists can avail of a cheap car rental at Palmerston Airport to check the natural and man-made beauties of the city. One of the latest and highly recommended destinations is the Palmerston Butterfly and Bird Haven in East Otago.

As the name suggests, a visit here will give tourists the chance to see the so-called '?flying flowers'? as they move from one plant to another. They can also refresh their knowledge on New Zealand's exotic birds.

A car hire at Palmerston Airport will enable visitors to explore the other thrills that could be found all over the city. A car rental at Palmerston Airport makes a cruise to Otago Goldfields Heritage Trail an unforgettable experience and a must for any tourist who comes to the city.

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.
