Car + Beds Packages

On the roadDiscover New Zealand’s North and South Islands at your own pace and in the vehicle of your choice. Plan your self-drive tour with our Car & Accommodation package.

Here’s what you do: choose the vehicle that suits you from our comprehensive Omega Rental Cars list and tell us how many nights you want to stay with YHA.

Our packages are based on multi-share 

accommodation. If you wish to stay in a private or family room, please contact us for a quote with your intended itinerary (the cost will depend on which hostels you choose).

Omega Rental Cars operates one of the largest independent New Zealand car rental networks with depots in Auckland, Wellington, Picton, Nelson, Christchurch and Queenstown.

Please note: car availability is limited over the summer months. Contact us to confirm availability during this time.

Between November 1 2014 and April 2015, there is a minimum one way hire of 14 days required.
If exchanging cars between the North and South Island, a minimum 7 day hire in each island is required.
