With Auckland’s fashion designers regularly making waves in Europe, Auckland is a shopper’s paradise. If you want to do some serious shopping in and around Auckland, rent a car from USAVE in Auckland to get around. When you hire a vehicle from USAVE Car & Truck Rentals, the convenience of your own transport opens another world, making a cornucopia of malls, shopping centres, arcades and boutiques easily available.
Within the city zone you’ll find originality and flair everywhere you look. Head for High Street and the shopping area known as Chancery. Sheep skin, paua shell and green stone have always been considered classic New Zealand souvenirs. You’ll find plenty of ‘Kiwiana’ in Auckland’s specialist souvenir shops including Swanndri jackets and ‘Red Band’ gumboots.
Once you’ve exhausted the city it’s time to venture beyond the high streets and explore some of the region’s fantastic local producers. Buy extra virgin olive oil at a local olive grove, or sample some of the great produce prepared at one of our orchards.
Excellent gifts for those at home may include locally made fruit chutney or a selection of NZ dried fruits. New Zealand made chocolates are always well received.
Did we mention New Zealand wine? Easy to pack and even easier to drink, with a USAVE rental car, you can explore the spectacular vineyards of the area and sample some of our finest chardonnay, merlot and cabernet sauvignon wines. Buy direct from the winemaker for some of the best advice and prices.
For shopaholics, Auckland is a one stop shop. Create your own schedule with a rental car from USAVE and shop ’til you drop!
