Benefits of Cruise Ship Car Hire to Passengers

Benefits of Cruise Ship Car Hire to Passengers

Coming into port is like passing through a gateway into a wonderful amusement park. Except instead of a park, you are entering a new and exciting region. New Zealand is an incredible country to cruise around because its wonders are numerous and their accessibility is easy, even when coming off a ship. The best way to see and do all the wonderful things New Zealand offers is to hire a car.When coming into port for a short period, after all the hustle and bustle of getting off the ship, you’ll be clambering for the easy and quick manoeuvrability of a hire car or a people moverif you’re travelling in a group.

Book before Departure

Booking your hire car before departure is always a wise option. If you haven’t cruised before, you’ll praise this advice as you stroll past all your fellow cruisers who are painfully lining up at the port car rental agencies. Moreover, booking with a local agency such as Pacific Auto Rentalswill see you paying lower rates. Best of all, booking in advance means that there is a car available that meets your needs.

Autonomy

When you go cruising, the trouble of getting to and from places in the big picture is replaced by a luxurious seaward voyage. However, once arriving in a port, most travellers and tourists will find that the autonomy of getting around and deciding which local attraction to visit is much preferred. This is where a hire car comes in.

Preference

When docking in a place like the Bay of Plenty, the amount of amazing things to see and do might lead to choice paralysis. Considering cruisers only receive a limited time in each port, it is wise to use that time for yourself. By hiring a car, you can say goodbye to the squabbling of family members or travel companions and hello to the relaxing drives and attractions you want to see. Whether you want to conquer some early morning hikes, walk around the Lord of the Rings movie set ‘Hobbiton’, or visit some wonderful thermal and mud pools, the entire region is smoothly accessible from a port with a hire car.

Scenic Drives

Getting on and off tour buses in an itinerated fashion can be fun, but it does lack the spontaneity and freedom of moving under your own steam. This is especially true in a region as naturally beautiful as the Bay of Plenty and its surrounds. A great way to take the place in is to hire a carfor one of the incredible local scenic drives.

Take in the incredible natural wonders like Cathedral Cove, or Karangahake Gorge, or stop and relax at a quiet beach or a beautiful seafood restaurant. With your own hands on the wheel once you’re in port, the path is yours to decide.
