Customers wishing to travel between the North and South Islands are not permitted to take Budget rental vehicles on the Inter-island Ferry across Cook Strait.

To allow for this type of inter-island travel Budget has introduced a special rental system called a Multi-Island Hire which creates one continuous rental. If you require a Multi-Island Hire, the following rental conditions apply:

  • For cars there is a minimum of 3 days consecutive rental required in each island (a minimum total rental of 6 days across both islands).
  • If you are traveling more than once between the two islands, the third (and subsequent) rental period has no minimum length of rental requirement.
  • The rental can start and finish at any Budget location in New Zealand (subject to vehicle availability).
  • You can cross between the two islands using the Picton Ferry Terminal and the Wellington Ferry Terminal, or you can fly into cities where Budget is located. Note: this policy only applies if you are traveling to the other island, not to a location within the same island.
  • A maximum of 5 hours is allowed between the drop off of the vehicle in one island and the pick up of the next vehicle.
  • A minimum of 72 hours notice is required of the renter's intention to cross between the North & South islands, if a crossover booking has not been previously made. If not enough notice is given, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be available on the other side.
  • For all wagons, 4WD's and vans there is a minimum of 5 days consecutive rental required in each island (a minimum total rental of 10 days across both islands).

Please Note: No Budget vehicle is allowed to cross Cook Strait between the North and South Islands. If you take a vehicle across Cook Strait on an Inter-island ferry (i.e. if you pick-up a rental vehicle on one island and leave the vehicle on the other island) without Budget authorisation, you will be charged an automatic relocation fee of NZ$450.00 (incl. GST).
