Car rental contracts were cancelled for two tourists in New Zealand, according to a report by The New Indian Express.

After renting vehicles from Avis Car Rental, the tourists were driving too slow at 60 kilometers per hour in 100 kmph zones. Additionally, they frequently stopped their cars in the middle of the road in New Zealand’s Queenstown area, leading others to report them to the police, according to the report.

The article reported the two drivers said they stopped to check their GPS to locate directions to Queenstown Airport and had trouble seeing the road due to fog.
