January 2012

Posted on 13 January 2012

Good deals are the flavour of the season in Australia and New Zealand. 

Due to a slow season in New Zealand and Australia there are some hugely competitive deals for the second half of summer. Those with a flexible itinerary will find particularly good value in picking up a vehicle in Christchurch and making their way North to Auckland.  Most travellers tend to drive in the opposite direction - from Auckland to Christchurch - so vehicle providers are always in need of rentals the other way to keep the fleet circulating. There are also cheap flights to be had from Auckland to Christchurch, so buck the trend and be rewarded with some very attractive rental prices.

Australian customers can also take advantage of some great relocation deals, with many suppliers offering low prices for travel from Cairns to Sydney or Brisbane. The autumn/winter season of April to June presents plenty of bargains across the board, especially if you’re looking to pick-up from the main centres of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Both USA and Canada are booking out fast for the 2012 summer, but - although the majority of Early Bird discounts and deals have now closed - there are still good prices to be had. The catch is that bookings MUST be placed before the 28th February. After that all Early Bird specials will have finished and you’ll see prices climb back up to peak rate.
