Car Rental Nelson – Cheap Discount Car Hire – Special Deals and Offers

The City of Nelson stands on the southern shore of Tasman Bay, at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand and is the administrative centre of the Nelson region.


Nelson received its name in honour of the 1st Viscount Nelson and Admiral of the fleet that defeated both the French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Many of the roads and public areas around the city are named after people and ships associated with that battle and Trafalgar Street is the main shopping axis of the city. Inhabitants of Nelson are referred to as Nelsonians.


The Nelson urban agglomeration (including the fast-growing adjacent town of Richmond) has a population of approximately 60,000 – and has recently had a population growth rate exceeding any other population centre in New Zealand.
