Location Information

Discover Dunedin with Budget Rental Cars and experience the South Islands second-largest city. From the calm waters of the Otago Harbour to the rugged surf of St Clair Beach and surrounding provinces, Dunedin is a great place to explore with a Budget Rental Car.

Being a coastal city, Dunedin has many beaches nearby and most are within a few minutes’ drive from the city centre. They provide great playgrounds for families and are a quick escape for those looking for a scenic surrounding. The environment also hosts fascinating wildlife unique to New Zealand, including Little Blue Penguins (the world’s smallest penguin), New Zealand Fur Seal (Kekemo), New Zealand Sea Lion (Rapoka/Whakahao) and the very rare South Island Kaka.

Within the city are gardens, museums, libraries and a rich history in literature. Dunedin is a UNESCO designated city of literature, one of only a handful of cities in the world with this distinction. The city is also home to the Dunedin Public Art Gallery which has the oldest public art collection in New Zealand.

Conveniently located at the arrivals hall at Dunedin Airport, Budget Rent a Car offers a wide range of late model rental cars, 4WDs, and vans. Budget Dunedin Airport is open to meet all incoming flights, so you can count on Budget for all your Dunedin and Otago rental needs.

Budget car rentals include unlimited kilometres, free road maps, standard insurance, and the comfort of 24-hour Roadside Assistance. Optional extras such as GPS Navigation, Excess Reduction, and Child Safety Seats are available at time of booking or rental.

Keep an eye out for our latest car rental Special Offers and let Budget Rental Cars drive your dollar further.
