Please be aware by accepting the booking you accept that the car needs to be fully insured by the owner or hirer of a rental to be driven by our drivers whom have a clean licence and are over 25 years of age. When booking the customer accepts complete damage liability no matter whose fault. Though we have had absolutely no problems from damage over the past years, we are unable to insure the driver(s) and therefore cannot accept any liability in case of accident because of that.
We can relocate your vehicle the whole distance from Brown hut (pick up 11:00 am) to Kohaihai (drop off 1:00pm), or vice versa. The vehicle will need a full tank of fuel. Cost for the 450 kms journey is $375.00.
Alternatively you are welcome to leave your car in Mapua and travel by bus to Brown hut ($60 each depart morning) saving your car from difficult unsealed roads. We can then relocate your vehicle to Kohaihai on a date ready for your arrival ($280) .
If we have no shuttle that coincides with your walking dates to transport the car relocater whilst you tramp or bike the track, it is possible if you have a spare seat that you pick him or her up en route and then drop the car relocater off at a bus terminal in Westport or Takaka to get back to Mapua.
