You can get a FREE or very cheap one way relocations of cars if you're prepared to relocate a car over a few days. You often only have pay for the fuel & if travelling from South to North Island you can often get the ferry thrown in for free! These free or very cheap relocations are usually only available from South to North (ie Christchurch to Auckland for example) Hence why I was saying its best to fly into Christchurch & out of Auckland if possible as you save on costs!

The following offer free relocations of cars or motorhomes:
