The minimum age for car rental depends on the local car rental supplier. Different suppliers may request a different minimum age in order to rent the car. We always recommend seeing the full terms and conditions for the selected car and car rental supplier in order to check that information. In some cases, the rental agency may apply for an extra charge for a young driver. The amount of young driver fee may be different for each supplier. Before you decide to rent the car and you are a young driver, please make sure that you are able to rent your car with selected company. Otherwise, the local company will refuse to provide the car.
What happens if I bring my rental car back late?
During the reservation process, you will be asked to choose exact drop off time. In case that you will be late and fail to return the car at the indicated time, you should urgently contact the local car rental agency. The calculation of our rental day is based on 24 hours and an additional charge can be added to your bill for returning the car after the indicated time. Late drop off is possible but it depends on the local supplier and their opening hours. If you have any delay, please contact the local supplier. Some local offices close at a certain time, so it is essential to advise them. There are not obligated to keep the car. To avoid surprises and unexpected extra costs please check the terms and conditions.
For how long I need to hold my drivers license in order to rent a car in Auckland?
The most suppliers require a valid drivers license for at least one year. Some agencies can ask you to provide a drivers license which is valid for more, for instance, two or even three years. We always strongly recommend our clients to see the terms and conditions for selected agency and car and read them carefully. At the time of rental, your driver license needs to have the required time of validity. This is a mandatory document and if you fail to provide it, the agent refuses to give you the car due to an invalid drivers license.
What is going to happen if I cause a damage to the rental car?
The driver is responsible for any damage on the rented car. The amount can be up to the blocked deposit on your credit card. For any accident caused, you will need to get a police report. Please also contact directly the local rental car agency. They will instruct you what is the procedure. If you don't have taken out any extra insurance, you might be charged up to the deposit amount blocked on your credit card. If you have a full comprehensive refund insurance, please ask for the invoice of the damage by the local company. With the invoice, you can request a refund by the insurance.
What is Collision Damage Waiver with excess?
Collision Damage Waiver it is a damage insurance coverage that is available and usually included in the rental rate. The Collision Damage Waiver most likely has an excess amount, which you will be responsible for. The security deposit will be blocked at your credit card on arrival at the local office. The deposit is an amount for which you can be held liable in case of damage/theft of the vehicle. It means that the particulate amount of money can be taken from the blocked if you cause any damage to the car during the car rental period. Damage to or loss of tires, windscreens, glass, and undercarriage may not be covered by the Collision Damage Waiver. When the car is returned in the same conditions as it was picked up from the office your security will be unblocked.

actual superficial body damage on car didn't match that recorded on form...the reality was more so I had to go back to office to sort out which was annoying because if I hadn't perhaps I might have been accused at a later date?
