Wellington Rental Car Hire
Wellington Car Hire is easy with Budget Rent a Car.
Discover Wellington with Budget Rent a Car and experience a modern, vibrant city that has a well-deserved reputation for outstanding restaurants, cafes, bars, nightlife and theatres. It is no surprise that a city marketed as the 'coolest little capital in the world' has a little bit of everything on offer; film, arts, adventure, and shopping are all easy to find within the city limits.
Since the release of Sir Peter Jacksons Lord of The Rings Trilogy in 2001, the Wellington suburb of Miramar has become the hub of the New Zealand film industry, leading to the moniker 'Wellywood'. Recent years have seen films such as King Kong, Avatar, and The Hobbit produced in Wellington.
Wellington is also home to the Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa) and has the only passenger cable car in New Zealand. The cars run from Lambton Quay in the heart of the city to the top entrance of the Wellington Botanic Gardens, offering a magnificent view over the city and harbour.
Beautiful little bays dot the outer suburbs of Wellington. Starting at Oriental Bay just East of Auckland CBD, a drive following the water's edge will take you through 30km of sandy bays, and rugged rocks with views across the inner harbour and out across the Cook Straight towards the South Island. Those wanting to find a spot on the beach be sure to stop off at Scorching Bay, north of Miramar. This spot is popular with the locals wanting to escape the often crowded Oriental Bay, and is secluded away from the wind often bellowing 'Windy Wellington'.
