Location Information

Wellington Airport is the beginning of your North Island exploration. Whether you’re looking to discover the workings of a vibrant city, stop by small towns and travel the rural outdoors or take in some of New Zealand’s coastal views, all can be explored from the comfort of a Budget rental car.

Only 15 minutes’ drive from Wellington Airport is New Zealand’s constitutional and cultural capital, Wellington City. Infamous for its weather, the windy city certainly lives up to its name, but don’t be deterred, this is just part of the city’s vibrant personality. In the heart of the downtown area are a collection of museums, galleries and boutique stores which are complemented by a fizzing café and bar scene that acts as a meeting place for many locals.

North of Wellington Airport is the Martinborough. This small town, famous for its winery, will charm you with its boutique accommodation and pinot range. Explore the area’s notable sights or go beyond and drive further north to the stunning Kapiti Coast for an amazing scenic drive. Cruise along the windy roads and watch as the mountainous Tararua Forest Park forms a dramatic backdrop along the length of the coastline. When it’s time for a break, relax in a crowd-free beach or find a walking trail to wander.
