Towbars

Ezi Car Rental is one of the only car rental companies that allow you to use our vehicles to tow your personal trailer.

Currently all our Toyota Hilux utes come with a towbar, so please see below for the towing capacity.

About the Toyota Hilux towing capacity

The Hilux 4WD Double Cab SR5 ute can tow a maximum of 3500kg (braked). The Hilux’s diesel engine holds the torque, which is why it thrives when towing trailers, boats or horse floats. Even in town the Hilux’s 450Nm of torque means it’s easier to accelerate away from traffic lights and sustain posted road speeds while carrying heavy loads in the tray.

If you require further information about towing, see the article below from the New Zealand Transport Authority.

https://www.nzta.govt.nz/resources/glovebox-guide-safe-loading-towing/guide-safe-loading-towing/

If you choose to tow any item, please note in case of an incident/accident, you are liable for any damage occurring to your trailer and load.

  • Do I have to rent snow chains in Winter?

    Snow chains can be an absolute essential when traveling in New Zealand during the winter months. As a result of motor vehicles being caught without chains in sudden snowfalls over winter in the Queenstown Lakes District and Milford Sound, a bylaw has been introduced.

    The bylaw states, "At the direction of an enforcement officer or authorised officer, the driver of any vehicle may be required to fit snow chains to such vehicle on any road, and no person shall drive, or direct or allow such vehicle to be driven without such snow chains fitted."

    Please be aware of this bylaw if you are going to be travelling in these areas during the winter period.

    Non-compliance will result in a $150 fine for Queenstown Lakes District and $750 for Milford Sound.

    Snow chains can be added for as little as $10 a day, up to a maximum of $40 per hire.

  • How to fit snow chains the easy way

    This video from Cardrona Alpine Resort shows you how to fit them:

  • Are there any roads I cannot drive on?

    You can drive Ezi Car Rental cars on any road except:

    • Tasman Valley Road - also known as the Ball Hut access road (Aoraki/Mt Cook)

    These roads are not part of normal touring routes and you will not be insured if you drive on these roads, or drive on any beaches or take part in any off road driving at any time during your hire.

     

Very pleased with the friendly service! We picked up the car from Auckland City and dropped the car off at the airport prior departing for Oz. When we dropped the car off we were asked if we filled the car up with petrol, which we didn't. The very friendly lady drove us to the petrol station so we could fill up and then dropped us off to the airport!!!! Nice touch!
