    Wellington Ferry

    Ferries depart from the Wellington port on the Lambton Harbor roughly five minutes from the train station. Daily routes between the North and South Islands of New Zealand are arranged by two separate passenger transportation companies. The Interislander and Bluebridge ferries transport over a million passengers and over 200,000 vehicles annually. If you are planning on spending time touring both islands by car, one of the major obstacles is the Cook Strait between the North and South Islands. That is why Auto Europe has collaborated with rental car companies to ensure that you will have a smooth, uninterrupted rental car experience. Clients will be able to return a vehicle to the designated rental car desk at one of the Wellington ferry terminals, take the ferry to the South Island, and retrieve a new vehicle from the same rental car company stationed at the Picton ferry terminal at no additional cost.
