Location Information

Wellington Ferry Terminal is your gateway to the North Island. If you’re island hopping, or if you’re a local, Budget Rent a Car can help to get you on your way. We are conveniently located at the Wellington Ferry Terminal where we offer a wide range of vehicles including 4WDs and vans. Budget is open to meet all incoming Cook Strait ferry sailings and is managed by the Wellington City location, so you can count on Budget for all your Wellington rental needs.

Once you’re off the Ferry and your car has been collected, you are just a short drive from Central Wellington, Lower and Upper Hutt, and Johnsonville. Follow State Highway 1 past Porirua and you can head North towards Paraparaumu, Levin, Palmerston North, and beyond.

If you’re planning an interisland journey make sure to read our interisland terms to make your transition as smooth as possible. Our multi-island hire process allows us to create one continuous booking for your entire trip, even though you will drop off your car at one port and collect it at your destination. This ensures you get the lowest rate possible for your entire rental, rather than having two shorter rentals.

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 drive your dollar further.
