The picturesque town of Picton is well positioned in Queen Charlotte Sound, and is the South Island base for the inter-island ferry services. The town is a great place to begin exploring the Marlborough Sounds and the seashore is dotted with cafes, restaurants, and craft shops.
Conveniently located at the Picton Ferry Terminal, Budget Rent a Car offers a wide range of late model rental cars, 4WDs, and vans. Budget Picton Ferry Terminal is open to meet all incoming Cook Strait ferry sailings, so you can count on Budget for all your Picton and Marlborough rental needs.
Both Interislander and Bluebridge Ferries arrive and depart here daily. The region is host to a wide range of tourist activities. Diving the 177m long MS Mikhail Lermontov cruise liner wreck is a must for the adventurers, while the laid back explorers can enjoy one of the many scenic walks around the beautiful Marlborough Sounds.
