At Spaceships, we have a refreshing take on car hire in New Zealand. Our philosophy of hire cars or campervans that are affordable to all, easy to drive and with no hidden fees or costs is the key element of our offering. Our hire cars are all great to drive, easy to park and fuel-efficient.

Urban Explorer

Have you ever dreamed of driving in a real spaceship? You already can! The Urban Explorer is a unique member of the Spaceships fleet, although no one can tell from looking at the outside. It is the perfect urban exploration vehicle that makes you feel like no one else on the road.

From the outside, it looks like a regular rental car but on the inside, you will find lots of surprises that will make your New Zealand road trip more enjoyable. Good surprises are included for free. Another reason why you will save money when hiring from Spaceships New Zealand, we have more included for free and yet our daily prices are still much lower than what the average car rental company will charge you.

Our Urban Explorer hire car comes with the following items:

  • Relaxation area in the back, that can even be turned into a bed
  • Big fridge to keep snacks & drinks cold
  • Cooking gear so you can whip up a quick lunch or just make some coffee or tea. No need to stop at a cafe on your road trip.

It will be such a nice upgrade of your rental car experience. Why hire a regular car when you can hire a Spaceships Urban Explorer at a lower price and no hidden fees? It's a no-brainer. Have a look at the specs and book your Urban Explorer now. 

Transporter: 5-seater car

Imagine you and 3 friends travelling to a festival or sporting event. 1 in the front, 2 in the back and a driver. With any other rental car, it will feel cramped (unless you hire a big expensive van) but not when you hire a Spaceships Transporter. Your mates will fit into this comfy 5-seater hire car alternative, no worries. We have various of these 5-seater Toyotas in our fleet, so you can even hire two or three of them and travel with an even bigger group. Travelling together is better.

Compare the specifications and the features of the Transporter MPV and you'll see how it will save you money. It'll be a comfortable road trip in this 5-seater people mover. And it also comes with lots of free extras:

  • Fridge to keep snacks & drinks cool. No need to buy expensive drinks at a petrol station.
  • Lots of storage space in the back.
