Kiwi owned and operated car rental company GO Rentals announced in a statement it has opened on Waiheke Island, marking their eighth location in New Zealand. GO Rentals Waiheke fleet will consist of cars including SUVs, vans, 4-wheel drives, mountain bikes, and e-bikes.
“Many visitors to the Island only scratch the surface of what is available due to not being accessible by public transport or limited seat capacity during peak season,” said GO Rentals chief operating officer James Dalglish in the statement. “The best way to explore Waiheke’s hidden gems is by car. Our new Waiheke location will make the Island as accessible as possible to domestic and international visitors at an integral time, following a challenging period for many businesses on Waiheke who rely heavily on tourism.”
GO Rentals currently has branches in Auckland (City and Airport), Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Queenstown, and soon Nelson (opening late 2022). The GO Rentals office is located inside the Matiatia Ferry Terminal.
“Waiheke has always been a location on our radar as it is at the top of every tourist itinerary,” added Dalglish. “We are incredibly excited to welcome both overseas and domestic travellers to Waiheke.”
