Pay Later bookings made through Air New Zealand

All Pay Later bookings are payable by credit card directly to our car rental partners at the counter. Apex is charged at vehicle collection, while Avis and Budget are billed after travel completion to the provided card. At the time of vehicle collection a hold will be placed on your card. This will be lifted after your rental is completed (please allow up to 7 days for processing by your credit card issuer). Any cancellations or amendments to your booking can be made online.

When you modify a booking the current day's rates will apply.

If your booking is payable at the counter the total indicated on your booking confirmation email will be indicated in the local currency of the country of travel (i.e. New Zealand bookings will be denoted in NZD, Australian bookings will be denoted in AUD, etc). This includes all rental car bookings made on the "Extras" page when booking a flight.
