    Explore Auckland with a Hire Car

    Auckland is a city with fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Experience the New Zealand air by taking a scenic drive beginning in the Titirangi region or climb to the top of Mount Victoria, one of Auckland's many dormant volcanoes to experience panoramic views of the city. If you'd prefer to see the volcanic regions from the water then hire a sea kayak or go sailing on an original America's Cup yacht. Thrill-seekers can go skydiving off one of the beautiful coastlines in Auckland from the highest freefall zone in New Zealand or walk the 93-meter high Sky Tower walkway with no handrails.

    Travellers who would prefer to shop can check out the city centre shopping district. Take a stroll down the cobblestone High and Chancery Streets in Auckland's CBD with hundreds of designer brands and local clothing stores, modern restaurants and stylish bars. The Auckland Night Markets boast around 200 stalls including street food, jewellery, live entertainment, fresh produce, clothing and more, making it a night out you don't want to miss.

    For a day trip, make the one hour drive to Piha west of Auckland. Famous for its premier thriving surf beach and natural rugged beauty, it is popular among locals who want to get out of the city and unwind. Whangarei is another tropical destination where New Zealand natives like to visit. Ocean beach has glistening white sand and good surf. If you are in the city centre and need to cool off then head to the Whangarei Aquatic Centre.

    New Plymouth boasts picturesque botanical gardens in the Pukekura Park with themed garden areas, small ponds, bridges and magical trails. Whakatane's natural beauties are a must see. Located only a few hours south of Auckland, you can go kayaking, fishing and encounter dolphins, seals or whales when visiting. There are also many hiking tracks which surround walkers by the coastline and lush terrain.

    Parking and Tolls in Auckland

    Auckland like many busy cities experiences congestion during peak hours in the CBD. Generally, the road network is an effective way of getting around, especially because the city is fairly spread out. All parking in Auckland's city centre is operated by metres and a Pay and Display system. On street parking operates from 8 am - 10 pm every day of the week and ranges from $1 - $4 per hour. Open-air parking is also available in numerous locations around the city with a base price of around $2 to $4.

    The Northern Gateway Toll Road is a 7.5km motorway extension north of Auckland. Charges for a car using this motorway are approximately $2.20. More information can be found on the city's parking page.
