CAR RELOCATION

CAR RELOCATION – THE FLEXIBLE, CONVENIENT TRACK TRANSPORT

Independence offers so much convenience. Your time is valuable and the best way to make the most of it when you’re on holiday is to travel at your own pace and on your own schedule. Our car relocation is a simple and efficient way for you to do just that.

Choosing car relocation means you can take your time on the track, there’s no meeting time or backtracking required. It’s safe, secure and we take care of the insurance arrangements with your rental car company. For groups, it’s also more cost-effective and efficient than the bus, plus you get the added bonus of a fresh pair of clothes (and snacks) waiting for you at the end of your walk!

HOW CAR RELOCATION WORKS

  1. After you’ve secured your DOC hut tickets, book your car relocation with us online here.
  2. You provide us with your vehicle details and walking times.
  3. You don’t need to do anything different when collecting your vehicle. A few days before your hike, we contact your rental car agency to add our driver to your insurance agreement.
  4. You collect a lockbox from our base in Te Anau or partners in Queenstown or Glenorchy.
  5. You fix the lockbox (with your car key inside) to your vehicle and start your hike.
  6. While you are walking, we move your car to your finish point.
  7. You finish your walk, locate your car and the key from the same lockbox.
  8. You drop off the lockbox back in Te Anau, Queenstown or Glenorchy enroute to your next destination.

TOO EASY!

Routeburn Track Car Relocation 

It takes a lot of time to organise each and every car relocation, so to enable our top notch service we have a standard start and finish time for Routeburn Track car relocations of 1pm.

Please have your car parked and ready for relocation by 1pm on the day you start walking.  If this is too early to suit your plans, you can choose our ‘late start’ option when booking for an additional $15 fee.

We schedule our drivers to relocate your vehicle so it’s ready for your collection after 1pm on your last day.  If you’d like your vehicle before 1pm, it’s no problem – just make sure to select the ‘early finish’ option when booking for an additional $15 fee.

Walking the Routeburn Track in one day? Due to the additional effort needed by our drivers for a single day relocation, a $60 surcharge on top of the relocation fee applies.

We’ve relocated hundreds of vehicles over the years and have great relationships with many of the rental agencies in New Zealand. Before you book your vehicle we suggest checking the list below of what to expect from them in terms of fees and conditions associated with our car relocation.

What are people saying?

  • Easy hike was a fantastic service from the beginning to the end. We were a family of 5, on the last day out of the hike absolutely thrilled to have our car waiting for us. We were hot and exhausted and very happy not to have to rush or wait for a shuttle. Lock box system very simple to use. Wonderful hand written note with a lovely postcard waiting for us in our car, nice touch. Email communication fantastic. Brilliant company. Thanks
  • Cannot recommend Easyhike enough! They relocated our car for us while we did the Routeburn Track in February. The process and details they provide make for an efficient and easy experience and by checking in/confirming details several times prior to the hike, we were confident in our booking. The Easyhike staff in Te Anau were also super friendly and able to recommend some places to stay overnight before the hike. Anyone hiking the Routeburn, Kepler or Milford tracks should definitely consider using this service provided by a great local company.
