How to find the Picton branch

While driving along SH1, and once you are directly off the elevation heading towards the Picton township, there is a large sign on the left hand side, saying how to get to the Picton Terminal. All customers should follow the sign where it says 'Walk on Interislander' and from there it is 2 kilometres to the main carpark where all Rental Car offices are quickly sited, and a carpark should be easily found before checking it in at the office directly across the road. If you are taking the car over on the Ferry you should follow the appropriate signs for the Interislander or Bluebridge marked on the same sign.


Situated approximately 20 seconds walk, directly across from the Ferry Terminal Building, in the center of the row of rental offices. The Picton Township is 1 kilometre away, an easy 5 minute walk. The train station is 200 metres from the office. Drop offs are made directly outside the office in the 60 minute park zone, a staff member will double check any follow on hires for the North Island and advise meeting point details for Wellington.

A drop box is available at the office for keys where an out of hours drop off is required. Clients are requested to drop the vehicle 45 minutes prior to ferry embarkation to allow for the vehicle and ferry check in.
