Public Holidays

Your holiday dates may cross over New Zealand’s public holidays

If so, please be aware that some service industries may charge a Public Holiday surcharge, for example, up to 15% may be added to a restaurant bill.  Some shops and supermarkets may also be shut for the day, or close earlier than normal.

Kiwi’s also like to travel during their public holidays so during this time, it is especially important to book campgrounds, activities and attractions in advance.

We also have Regional Anniversary Days.  If you want to check Regional Anniversary days and Public Holidays, please go to publicholiday.co.nz

Please note, a NZD80 surcharge will apply to all vehicles being collected or returned on a public holiday. See our Terms and Conditions.
