The easiest car rental company I have ever used. Pick up took minutes & drop off was just as simple. Car was brand new and shuttle to and from airport was efficient.

Our Penrose car rental branch is a GO Rentals legend – it’s where everything started way back when and we still love to see lots of customers booking their rental cars out of our Penrose branch. In 2016, we opened up a new city centre branch in the heart of Auckland, making car rental in Auckland much easier for those people staying in the CBD or arriving by train, bus or ferry. Along with our Auckland Airport branch, we’ve really got all the bases covered.
Our Auckland Penrose rental car branch is only a 15 minute drive from the city centre and is perfect for those people living south of the city who don’t want to head into the busy CBD to pick up their rental car. It’s also great for anyone heading down from the north for business – we’re situated just 2 minutes of the main State Highway 1 and we’ll get you on your way in no time at all, saving you precious time and making sure you get to where you need to be.
Like our other branches, we have hundreds of new and late model vehicles from zippy hatchbacks to 12 seater vans so no matter what you’re looking for, we have the perfect rental vehicle for your next trip. Our Penrose branch is perfect for those travelling for business. We’ve got some awesome new Toyota and Hyundai vehicles in our fleet with all the bells and whistles from Bluetooth connectivity to touch screen audio.
Our Auckland Penrose car rental branch has been around forever and we have some of the best staff in the car rental business who know just what you’re looking for – a quick check in and check out process and just the right information to get you on your way. We take pride in delivering awesome customer service. You’ll see from the reviews above that we do a pretty good job too but we always like to go the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure.
