Top tips for hiring a car at Blenheim airport

  • Whether you’re visiting for the first time or you’re a seasoned traveller, car hire at Blenheim Airport (BHE) offers the flexibility to travel when you want, with the added convenience of driving wherever you want without the bother of public transport schedules. Wither Hills Farm Park and Mt. Vernon Lookout Point offer panoramic vistas just outside the town centre, or you can travel south along Highways 6/1 to Lake Grassmere, about 47 km from the airport complex.
  • Some providers, like Hertz, will not allow you to take a car hire from North Island to South Island, while others, such as Avis, will allow you to take your car on the ferry. The car hire centre at Blenheim Airport is located just outside the International Arrivals Hall, near Baggage Reclaim Gates 16-22. All the major suppliers, including Hertz, Avis, Thrifty and Europcar, have garages a short distance away and provide shuttle transport with curbside pick-up. If you have difficulty or need directions, an airport staff member should be able to assist.
  • Bear in mind you should return your Blenheim Airport car hire to its location of origin. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to enquire whether drop-offs at alternate locations are permitted if this is a more convenient option. Major suppliers such as Hertz, Avis and Europcar provide convenient drop-off locations near the terminal building, and many offer 24-hour return service, so you can return your vehicle without much of a hassle.
  • Generally speaking, the major headache for picking up a car hire at Blenheim Airport will occur if your flight is late or if you arrive at your provider earlier than expected. Otherwise, most providers are usually open between 08:00 and 20:00. Upon returning the car, you can hand the keys to an attendant or simply deposit them in the overnight box for after-hours returns.
  • Book your car hire at Blenheim airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Blenheim airport

  • Which hire car companies are straightforward at Blenheim Airport?

    Most of the providers have onsite offices and are easy to reach from the International Arrivals Hall. We recommend making your reservation in advance to better secure a vehicle of your choice. This also simplifies the process when you arrive at the car hire centre. It may be advantageous to maintain an account with your preferred provider, especially if you’re a frequent traveller.

  • What should I know about driving from Blenheim Airport?

    Being familiar with the local road rules will help you navigate your way from Blenheim Airport to the town centre and safely enjoy your adventures around the northern coast of South Island. Driving is performed on the left-hand side, seatbelts are required by all occupants and only hands-free devices are allowed while driving. Cameras are in wide use in Blenheim, so observe the following speed limits unless otherwise indicated: in populated areas, it’s 50 km/h; along rural roads, 100 km/h; and on highways, up to 110 km/h. Strict rules also apply for driving under the influence, so have a designated driver or take a taxi just to be safe.

  • What types of documentation are required to hire a car at Blenheim Airport?

    To obtain a Blenheim Airport car hire, you need to be at least 21 years old and have held your licence for at least one year. Be advised that many of the major providers apply surcharges to drivers under the age of 25, and most impose a limit of 70 years. In addition to your passport and ID, there are other essentials needed for car hire at Blenheim Airport. These include an unexpired driver’s licence and major credit or bank debit card, whose credentials match the ID presented. We recommend that all non-New Zealand citizens also have an International Driving Permit, which is often requested by the major providers at the airport.

Pros:

I did get my email reciept quickly

Cons:

The office isn't open unless there's an arrival. I don't like dropping a car off in a dark lot without someone looking at the car. I don't want to be charged for damage that might have occurred after my car was returned. This happened to us once in Spain when we returned out car a day early and some agent used it for a day.
