Welcome to Thrifty Wellington Airport

Our convenient airport location means you can pick up a Thrifty rental car and drive on to sample Wellington’s truly vibrant culture.  New Zealand’s Capital City Wellington is at the heart of creativity with world class cafés and restaurants.  Geographically compact as a city, the close hills and rugged coastline of our nation’s capital serve to enclose and enhance the local culture.

Need help or want to extend your rental, please contact the branch directly on 04 388 9494.

The closest petrol station is
Z, located on Broadway

Returning a vehicle to our branch
Follow the signs for the rental car returns on Stewart Duff Drive.  When you get to the entrance barrier for the car park press the button on the machine and take a ticket.  Follow the signs to the rental car area, insert the ticket at the barrier arm.  The barrier will raise and let you enter the Rentals area.  Once you’re in the rental car park use any available Thrifty car park.  Lock the vehicle and return the keys to the Thrifty counter on the ground floor of the terminal building (located near the baggage claim area).

Returning a vehicle after hours?
Please use the drop box conveniently located at the counter.
