You must comply with New Zealand rules on the road and local regulations when driving a rental vehicle. The lease includes these conditions and the rental document showing the rental details made available to each vehicle at the time of the rental (which is called a “rental document” under these conditions). The lease agreement is between Budget Rent A Car Limited (hereafter referred to as “owner”) and the person and/or company that signs the rental document (hereinafter referred to as “tenant”) whose information is contained in the rental document. It is agreed as follows: VEHICLE DESCRIPTION – TERM OF HIRE 1. The owner will rent the vehicle, the details of which are described in the rental document (hereafter referred to as the “vehicle”) for the duration of the tenancy, as indicated in the rental document, and the tenant will take it with him. PERSONS AUTHORIZED TO DRIVE RENTAL VEHICLE 2. The vehicle may only be driven for the duration of the rental by the persons named on the rental document or in a supplementary driver`s card attached to the rental agreement, and only if they have a complete up-to-date driver`s licence, suitable for the vehicle while using the vehicle. HIRER PAYMENTS 3. The tenant pays the landlord the amount or amounts indicated in the rental document for the rental of the vehicle; and authorizes the landlord to calculate all the amounts to be paid into the tenant`s account. The tenant`s account refers to a designated debit card, credit card or pre-established penalty account. (4) In addition to the payment in point 3, the tenant recognizes that at the end of the tenancy period, the tenant is required to pay the landlord all additional costs payable at the end of the period.
These include: (a) a fee for additional drivers; b) an increase for drivers under the age of 25; (c) additional charges for routes travelled (as indicated in the rental document for each mileage); (d) charges for gasoline or other fuels used (but not for oil); (e) road tolls; (f) late return costs of the vehicle; (g) royalties for damage or repairs to the vehicle (subject to other terms of the lease); and all foreclosure costs related to such damages or repairs (including legal costs); (h) the cost of cleaning the interior of the vehicle when the vehicle is returned in an overly dirty condition requiring additional cleaning or deodorization. This includes, but is not limited to, liquids, food, vomiting, other stains, and unpleasant odors, including cigarette smoke; (i) charges for traffic and/or parking violations; (j) the administrative costs set out in the lease; and (k) any surcharge related to the tenant`s use of a debit or credit card. 5. The landlord will pay into the tenant`s account the amounts indicated in clauses 3 and 4 during or after the end of the tenancy period, or the tenant will be able to pay the agreed costs with the landlord, the choice being left to the exclusive discretion of the landlord.
