New Zealand Rentals

Motorcycle hire in Auckland and Christchurch for total freedom to travel as long as you like, where you like, around North and South island.
  • Because New Zealand offers such a choice of scenery, riding conditions and distractions, our fly-ride programme offers an unbeatable range of motorcycles to suit all riders. If you like the freedom to go as you please then this is the option for you, all at the best possible price. We’ve just done all your hard work for you! The same motorcycles are also available for our tours – see the tours section.

    For all rentals, we can arrange accommodation pre-and post-tour to allow you time to recover from or wait for international flights. Please ask us at time of booking. And don’t forget to ask us for the all-important travel insurance and a flight quote!
