You will have read in our ATPI News December issue about the expected rental car shortages and we thank those who have booked early.

The primary rental car providers have advised us that there are no rental cars available in most New Zealand locations for the next three weeks.

We are achieving the very occasional waitlist clearance, but we ask you not to rely on this and to plan as if this will not eventuate. Alternatives include taxis, uber, car share companies or to reschedule your trip if a rental vehicle is important.   

We previously mentioned the perfect storm between a very busy inbound tourist season and the return of our corporate travellers to work and alas, we are amidst this period of time.
