Hey Gordon,

Go on the visitor's bureau webpage-


You have 2 options:

1. Fab Rentals (which require a deposit of around $500 TOP and insurance on top of that) OR

2. Jetsave (the one I went with and got a car for $60 TOP Toyota Yaris I think, just had to make sure that it was topped up with fuel and insurance was to be covered by the travel insurance that you purchase separately). I think the lady's name is Lee (kiwi) and was lovely to deal with.

Best of luck,


New Zealand

Are you sure lee is from Jetsave? Or is she from fab rentals? Cos on the website, the email contact for fab rentals is lee (leeintonga@gmail). Do you know what the prices are for fab rentals? and avis?

Lee is at Fab rentals not Jetsave. The information given in the first reply should be the other way around. Fab rentals does not provide insurance on their cars, so you are liable for any damage whereas Jetsave does you just have to pay the excess if you are in an accident. Avis has 15 seater vans and Jetsave has 12 seater vans.
