Hire a car in New Zealand for the epic Cricket World Cup 2015

It’s one of the most exciting years in the history of New Zealand sport, as Aotearoa hosts the Cricket World Cup 2015 alongside Australia. Across seven cities in the North and South Islands, there has never been a better time to combine our natural beauty with this huge spectacular of cricket. Fourteen international teams are taking part with more than 20 games across seven host cities in New Zealand, including Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Dunedin

The country has been primed for this tournament for a long time and Airport Rentals is ready to help accommodate you on the ultimate Kiwi road trip with a car hire. The excitement is rising for the chance to travel from Auckland to Hamilton, or from Wellington to the South Island, as you follow your chosen team – or perhaps you just fancy the bigger games and want to be a part of this sports spectacular. 

Freedom to travel, a World Cup rental car

When planning your Cricket World Cup road trip in New Zealand or Australia, you need to think strategically about how long you require your vehicle and where you wish to go. Perhaps a Nelson car rental will suit, combining the West Indies v Ireland fixture on February 16 with the stunning wineries of the local region. Or what about a Napier car hire? The Black Caps play Afghanistan on March 8. There are so many wonderful itineraries to choose from.  If you are going to travel inter island then it’s important to note that only some car suppliers will allow you to take your car on the Interislander Ferry. Other car suppliers will arrange another car for you on the other side. This is a cheaper option as you don’t pay to take the car on the ferry, however you do have to unpack the car. Our Reservation Consultants can assist you with this information and find the right car supplier to meet your requirements. .

World Cup fixtures – can the Black Caps go all the way? 

The timing of the Cricket World Cup couldn’t be better for New Zealand fans. Brendon McCullum’s team are in amazing form and considered one of the favourites. It’s a unique opportunity for the Black Caps and they are heavily fancied to make at least the semifinal at Eden Park on March 26 – and what an event that could be. 

So make sure you don’t miss out on this ideal opportunity to hire a car in New Zealand and get amongst the party. Remember, if New Zealand do win, they will hold both the Rugby and Cricket World Cup trophies at the same time… and everyone should want to be a part of that!
