Getting around

Renting a car in Picton is easy-peasy – as low as $19 per day if you shop around. Most agencies allow drop offs in Christchurch; if you’re planning to drive to the North Island, most companies suggest you leave your car at Picton and pick up another one in Wellington after crossing Cook Strait. Take a punt on a cheaper local operator, or the big-namers at Picton Ferry Terminal:
