We know you'll love living JUCY. How? Because we have these 10 great reasons why you should hire from JUCY rentals in New Zealand. 

1. As many as 88% OF PEOPLE WOULD RECOMMEND JUCY AFTER TRAVELLING WITH US

Your feedback is important to us! After our customers have dropped off their vehicle, we always ask how they found their experience. 

We're very proud that 88% of people who have had a JUCY experience would recommend us to their friends and family.  

When asked "How likely are you to recommend JUCY to your friends and family?", with 1 being 'Not at all likely' and 10 'Extremely likely', 67% of people gave us an awesome 9 or 10 out of 10. A further 21% of people gave us a 7 or 8 out of 10.* 

That's pretty amazing! Here are a few of the wonderful comments people have left us recently:

"Airport pick up was easy. Having the complete insurance included in the price made pick up easy as JUCY had already done the car inspection, and so we just drove away nice and quick. Returning the car was just as easy, and I felt respected and trusted. The car felt reliable overall. Really happy with our experience."

"Just an amazing and fun vehicle that comfortably fit my best friend and I. I only wish I had come across JUCY earlier in my life. Little on the expensive side if you're on your own, but split with a friend or partner it's much more affordable. More than anything being mobile and travelling around with everything you need in the campervan was a priceless adventure for us. We could drive to a gorgeous lake or beach after a huge day, sleep and wake up to stunning views. Don't forget to honk if you see other Jucy adventurers!"

"I loved how quickly and stress-free the whole process to rent with you guys was! The campervan is comfy, compact and a great start for people like us who have never done this before."

"Great service, easy booking process and amazing service to and from the airport."

"Thought the whole process of hiring through JUCY was easy, reasonably priced and just fantastic!"

2. YOU CAN GET GREAT DEALS

JUCY offers great cars and campervans at affordable prices. We frequently offer specials on our car and campervan rental rates so if you keep an eye out for promo codes you could get a great discount on your vehicle hire!

JUCY isn't limited to cars and campervans. We also operate JUCY Cruise in Milford Sound, and JUCY Snooze in Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown. When you hire a JUCY vehicle, you can take advantage of discounts at Cruise and Snooze, meaning you can get the complete New Zealand travel experience for less! 

We offer regular relocation deals. This means you can hire a vehicle for as little as $1 a day. All you need to do is travel from one specific branch to another (for example, from Christchurch to Queenstown) within a certain timeframe.

3. WE HAVE FIVE BRANCHES AROUND THE COUNTRY

We have JUCY branches in Auckland - one in the centre of the city and one near the airport - WellingtonChristchurch and Queenstown. More locations mean more flexibility, as you can pick up your vehicle at one branch and drop it off at another. You could travel New Zealand all the way from South to North, or go on just a short hop from Queenstown to Christchurch. 

We even have special fares on the Interislander ferry, to make it easier for you to travel both the North and South islands of New Zealand.

4. WE'RE KIWI OWNED AND OPERATED

JUCY was started by two Kiwi brothers back in 2001, and they're both still at the helm of the business. We're proud to be a New Zealand company and embody the famously easygoing Kiwi nature.

5. AND THAT MEANS WE HAVE SWEET AS CUSTOMER SERVICE

Our Kiwi spirit means we have exceptionally friendly customer service. Our core values are fun, family, pride and passion, and our entire JUCY crew live and breathe these principles. There's no stiff and formal greeting when you arrive at a JUCY branch - we treat you as if you're part of the family! 

As well as being a friendly (and frank great looking) bunch, we also happen to be a team of passionate travellers who love exploring New Zealand. When you hire with JUCY, we'll give you excellent travel advice along with your vehicle!

6. WE HIRE TO 18+

The typical minimum age for car rental companies in New Zealand is 25. There are some rental businesses who will hire to drivers under the age of 25, but you'll have to pay a fee for the privilege. 

JUCY rents cars to anyone aged 18 years or over, as long as you have a valid licence in English. We don't charge an underage surcharge for drivers aged 18-20. Whether you’re young, or just young at heart, JUCY gives you the green light to get out there and have the adventure of a lifetime!

7. WE HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF VEHICLES

Our wide range of cost-effective vehicles means you can always find a great deal on your rental, whether you're after a fully self-contained campervan or just a nippy little Suzuki Swift. 

We keep backpackers in mind and always aim to offer the best prices on car rental in New Zealand. If you don't need a fancy new car, we give you the option of choosing our slightly older (but still well loved and cared for!) El Cheapo vehicles, so you can save money. 

If you do want something a bit fancier, you can go for one of our custom-made campervans. There are five different models to choose from, each with their own distinct benefits.

8. WE HAVE ELECTRIC CAMPERVANS

We're an innovative bunch, and we love to look for sustainable solutions for travel in New Zealand. As a result, we developed New Zealand's first electric campervan. From June 2019 you can book our awesome EVs and try them for yourself!

This is a fun and stylish way to travel New Zealand with a much smaller carbon footprint.

9. OUR CAMPERVANS ARE DESIGNED AND BUILT IN NEW ZEALAND

We custom make our campervans at our special facility JUCY by Design, based in Helensville. Each new iteration of our campervans has improvements and updated features based on our customers' feedback. We're designing these campervans specifically for you!

You'll find everything you need in our campervans, including USB charging ports, Bluetooth stereos, and the kitchen sink!
