New Zealand’s Lucky Rentals locations are offering free rentals to customers needing a vehicle to visit sick relatives in the hospital.

There will five rental cars available at Lucky’s locations in Auckland and Christchurch, says the company. The rental fee will be waived; customers only need to pay for gas. And there is no time limit for the rentals.

“It can be hard to visit family members who aren’t close by, especially when there are medical bills involved,” said Chris Whiteside, the founder of Lucky Rentals. “Hopefully, this will make things a little easier when family has to leave their hometown to make visits.”

Starting in October, this offer will run for about three months, says the company.
