A large number of our customers travel between the North Island & South Island, so Apex Car Rentals have teamed up with the Bluebridge and Interislander ferry companies to offer you an unbeatable deal.
Book any Apex rental car for travel in both the North Island & South Island and the daily rate includes the cost of the vehicle ferry ticket. For example, you can take our most popular self-drive holiday route from Auckland Airport to Christchurch Airport, or do the round trip from Auckland to Auckland crossing Cook Strait twice, or maybe see the country from south to north and pick up in Queenstown and drop off at Auckland Airport. Whatever way you go, Apex makes your ferry crossing a hassle free experience.
To take advantage of this special offer you must book all of your passenger ferry tickets directly with Apex - not with the ferry company - and you must travel on one of the Cook Strait Ferry services shown below. The option to book passenger ferry tickets is displayed during the car reservation process and the relevant cost is paid to Apex. Minimum rental periods apply depending on the travel dates selected and the length of rental requested.
Visit the Bluebridge website for the latest timetable for ferry sailings.
Visit the Interislander website for the latest timetable for ferry sailings.
Apex will reserve your Bluebridge or Interislander passenger ferry tickets on your behalf and have these waiting for you along with your vehicle ferry ticket when you pick up your car.
Please Note: All ferry tickets are able to be changed en-route - subject to availability.
