South Island, New Zealand by car rental


Plan an adventure vacation in South Island New Zealand by car rental.  Though both the North and South Islands are excellent islands to explore in a car rental, the South Island is worthy of our top 10 list as a destination all it's own.  The words "island" and "adventure" seem to go hand in hand, and you can't find a more adventurous island than South Island New Zealand!

Begin your stay on the South Island with a car rental from Christchurch International Airport.  The largest city on the South Island and the second largest city in New Zealand after Auckland, Christchurch is a great place to do some city sight-seeing and enjoy nightlife before you embark on a scenic tour of the more wild, adventurous nature of the rest of the island.

The adventure capital of New Zealand (and possibly the world) is Queenstown, South Island.  Virtually every kind of adrenaline rush you could ask for can be found here, from skiing to jet-boat riding, and everything in-between.  New Zealanders pioneered the bungy jump, and here they like to do it from almost any surface tall enough.  For the most thrilling experience of South Island scenery catch the view while you plummet to earth on a sky diving adventure.  This and more is what Queenstown is for.

Throw a vineyard tour into your visit to South Island by car rental for a little balance.  In the city of Nelson you can drive through stunning coastal and mountain scenery, visit three national parks, as well as some very fine vineyards and orchards.  Nelson is the cuisine capital of New Zealand, featuring a variety of delicious local produce, varied restaurant scene, craft brewing, and the largest fishing port in Australasia.
