Road trip to Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach ~ only $23 each to hire a car
A bunch of 8 people without cars staying at our working hostel had a day off work decided to hire a Car take a road trip to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach for the day. Tracey phoned Papamoa Car Rentals and helped arrange a great deal; http://www.papamoabeachcarrentals.co.nz/ offer great terms they had an 8 seater Estima suitable for full day self driving trips. Our backpackers full day trip cost about $184 including care hire, mileage, insurance, tax & fuel… a super fantastic day out for all cost a mere $23 each. A great day out for all, Lisa from Papamoa Beach Car Rentals was most obliging allowing a late hour return to the yard which was great allowing the group to drive casually back returning the car to the yard about 9.30pm returning the keys to the drop-box and texting Lisa to let her know of their return. The 177 kms each way took about 3 hours driving time, so with a relaxed return time a plenty of time was available to enjoy sightseeing.
