KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Invercargill

  • Car hire in Invercargill offers a great opportunity to explore the capital of Southland, rich in history and vintage motor vehicles. You can spend your days moving from the racing memorabilia through to many of the historical buildings and down to the heritage trail before taking to the road for one or two road trips. The Catlins are less than 40min away, home to sweeping coastline scenery and rare wildlife. You can do all of this without relying on bus schedules or finding a taxi that'll charge an arm and a leg for your travels.
  • There are plenty of companies offering car hire in Invercargill at Invercargill Airport (IVC), and choosing one here means you don't have to rely on public transport to and from the airport. The car hire companies are located outside of the arrival and departure terminals, along Airport Avenue, and in the car park across the road as you exit the terminals. To avoid any availability issues and to save time, book online through KAYAK and take the confirmation details to the car hire desks. Once you've confirmed payment, you'll be given the keys and taken to the vehicle for the final inspection.
  • Driving in Invercargill is much like driving in any other small city or town, and the roads are wide enough to accommodate all vehicles. Traffic lights and road signs guide you through the city, with plenty of on-street parking for vehicles. Drivers in Invercargill are casual, so don't drive too quickly around the city centre. Mostly, you'll be able to cruise along and enjoy the trees blowing in the wind along the side of the road.
  • There aren't very many difficulties when driving your car hire in Invercargill; there's minimal traffic most of the time and cars move at a leisurely pace. If you don't like traffic, consider avoiding the roads during the morning and evening work and school commute. This usually takes place from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day. The weekends tend to be a little busier but this shouldn't worry you. One of the main difficulties might be the slow pace of the traffic, especially if you're used to driving in fast-paced cities.

If you're at an on-street parking section that isn't free, the first 15min generally come without a charge and you'll be charged in 15min increments from then on.
