What is Transfercar?
We're a service that helps rental car companies to transfer cars between their branches while offering a way for travellers to travel for free. Here you can search relocation cars and campervans from the majority of New Zealand rental car companies.
How can the rental cars be free?
Rental car companies are spending large amounts of money on transferring cars between their branches, in order to position their fleet for new hires. They can either use expensive trucks or trains or they can let you drive it for free. The rental operators win, you win.

Who can become a Transfercar driver?
We are constantly looking for more drivers. Families, students, backpackers, event-goers, seniors or other travellers are all welcome. All that is required is that you are over a certain age (18, 21 or 25 depending on the rental operator) and have a full driving license valid in New Zealand (including from overseas).
How do I book a transfercar?
You can search or browse for all the transfer cars available on our website. When you have found a transfer you like, you make a request to drive that car. The rental car company will normally respond within 24 hours. If you are accepted, then the car is booked, and you receive the details on where to pick up the car and sign the contract.
Just like an ordinary rental car booking, except the rental price on the contract is zero, or just a few dollars depending on the relocation deal.
