Grid Escaping Car Rental Experience
It’s time to hit the ‘eject’ button
Sometimes you just need to get away from it all. Fast.
Thankfully, New Zealand is one of the most remote places on earth, and isolated spots with no cell-phone reception grow on trees. So grab your backpack, throw in some mozzie repellent, sunscreen and a towel, and leave the rest to chance.
The plan is, there is no plan. Close your eyes and stick a pin in the map. If push comes to shove you can sleep in the car and eat freshly caught Kina.
Camry/Elantra Sedan or similar
SUV / Station Wagon
Toyota Rav4 AWD or Similar
0-3 Years KIA Carnival or similar
Switch off, tune out
Step. Away. From the phone.
The whole point of going bush is to escape, so choose somewhere your mobile won’t work. You won’t believe how liberating it is to know you’re uncontactable.
Walk the tracks, drink in the views and make the time to appreciate it all. Life moves too fast so unplug and wind down.
It’s time to swap your chirping alerts for some good old-fashioned bird song. And breathe.

Rent the Experience
A rental car’s a rental car. A moving metallic shell capable of travelling at relatively high speeds from one point to another, safely harbouring people and said people’s material goods en route. It’s a means of getting from A to B, a functional requirement, a literal rental vehicle to something much bigger. A rental car experience.
An experience is something that helps to deﬁne us, that inspires us, that makes us more alive, more human. It’s a breath of mountain fresh air. The feel of a wind on our face. The ﬁltered orange glow of a breaking dawn. The pulse-racing rush of adrenaline, the quivering anticipation of a journey unknown.
An experience is something that validates our sense of who we are. It becomes weaved into the fabric of our existence. It can be brought to mind on a whim to help us escape to a better time. It lives on in us. Forever.
