It is a requirement whilst driving in New Zealand that all children under 7 years of age must use an approved child restraint appropriate for their age and size.
For further information on child seat requirements whilst driving in New Zealand, please visit the official New Zealand Transport Agency website for more details.
It is important to note that Ezi Car Rental staff are not trained child restraint technicians. All care is taken to ensure car seats are fitted correctly, however it is the driver’s responsibility to check that the child restraint has been adjusted according to the child’s size and weight and fitted correctly to the vehicle.

Please note any last minute, late night bookings, may not have the child safety seat installed due to reduced staff numbers at the branch.
