Guide to Rotorua, New Zealand

Rotorua is a city located in The Bay of Plenty Region of the North Island of New Zealand. It is situated approximately 240 km southeast of the city of Auckland. Known the world over for its geothermal activity, Rotorua is a thriving tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors annually. Bubbling mud pools and hot thermal springs are all within reach of Rotorua and hiring a car is probably the most cost effective, independent way to see the region.

15 minutes from Rotorua is the Buried Village. The volcanic eruption of Mount Tarawera almost 120 years ago buried many Maori villages, including Te Waiora. The Buried village is now open to the public and shows the excavated ruins of the village and also recounts the eruption itself.

The possibilities for family fun are endless in Rotorua, from white water rafting and relaxing in a mud pool to watching a sheep shearing demonstration. Mountain biking in Whakarewarewa Forest is also a popular activity with families. Rotorua is also the heartland of New Zealand's Maori culture, and you will experience the warmth of this everywhere in the city and surrounding region.

The process was easy and seamless. The car as anticipated. No problems whatsoever, will use again for sure

Tony Walsh, Aug-2012

Spent a month in NZ and I decided to rent a car instead of relying on public transport and my friends. I booked a small car because I didn't want to pay a high price for a mid-size car. Opted for a Skoda Fabia over another car because it was about £250 cheaper. A bargain.

Easy pickup at our New Zealand location. The price of the car was very reasonable.
