Long-term car rental in New Zealand

Whether you are revving up for an epic New Zealand excursion, have overseas visitors or are shifting into a business trip, our affordable and hassle-free long-term car rentals have got you covered.

With discounted rates for a range of cars from electric to SUVs, 24-hour roadside assistance and unlimited kilometres, you can have rental peace of mind with GO.

The benefits of long-term car rentals

Long-term car rentals can provide many benefits over standard car ownership or lock-in contracts for leasing:

  • Flexibility
    Plans change and we embrace that! Renting a car long-term, without any lock-in contracts, means your car works for your plans, not the other way around. Have the freedom to switch vehicles or change your itinerary. Going from a slick electric car rental for business meetings to an SUV for a family road trip has never been easier.
  • Cheaper rates
    Renting a vehicle for more than a few weeks will often unlock a cheaper fee per day. This can lead to substantial savings in the long run. If you can't commit to buying or leasing a car then access the discounted rates for long-term rental cars. However, it's important to note that these cheaper rates are subject to seasonality, demand, and availability.
  • Convenience
    Travel at your own pace without a looming return date. Whether you have multiple business commitments or you're a tourist here to experience the full beauty of New Zealand, book a monthly car rental for the freedom to travel whenever you need.
  • One-Way Rentals
    GO Rentals offers a one-way rental service, even on our long-term bookings. This allows you to focus more on your itinerary and less on your return date. Whether you are moving cities, travelling from the North to the South Island or want the freedom to fly home, you don't need to compromise for your car rental.
  • Maintenance and repairs
    Unlike car ownership or some leasing contracts, we are responsible for the maintenance and repairs of your long-term car rental (providing all terms of the agreement are met). When you are navigating an extended trip, the last thing you want to worry about is regular car maintenance and unexpected costs.
  • Modern vehicles
    Don't compromise on comfort or luxury. Long-term car rentals allow you to experience new vehicle models like our Tesla fleet or hybrid cars without the commitment of buying.
