Pick up or Drop off bike in Nelson (recommended) or Christchurch or Auckland (conditions apply)

Nelson is our Head Office, and is the main servicing centre for our bikes and our recommended start and finish point for your tour of New Zealand.

Why do you think we live here? :-)

Nelson is at the gateway to the South Island's West Coast and is in the heart of some of the best riding in New Zealand. It is our opinion that far too many visitors waste valuable holiday time starting in Auckland or Christchurch.

Apart from starting in a large and busy traffic filled city, and having to cope with new traffic rules and perhaps riding on the correct side of the road :-), both centres are some time and distance from NZ's best motorcycling roads, particularly Auckland.

If you have less than 18 days in New Zealand, we strongly, very strongly in fact, recommend that you confine your trip to the South Island. The South Island is much more rewarding for motorcycle touring. In fact, if you were to rank the most scenic and motorcycle friendly roads to ride in New Zealand, the South Island would occupy the top 20 positions.

Of course you can pick-up or drop-off your bike in Auckland or Christchurch - one way drop off fees apply in rental periods of less than 21 days.

We do our very best to keep one way drop off fees to a minimum, and if possible, we will combine and share costs with our other client bookings and bike movements for our Guided tours. For this reason, please ask for a one way drop off quotation (click on the link) if you wish to pick up or drop off the bike at one location, and drop off at another.

If you're prepared to start and finish in Nelson, discounted rental rates are available:

Nelson pick up, Nelson drop off on rentals in excess of 14 days - a 10% discount on bookings at our regular rental rates.
