New Caledonia Car Rental Mini Guide

New Caledonia, surprisingly, has nearly 7,000 square miles of land with a variety of terrain and all easily explored in a hire car from Rhinocarhire.com. You may need a 4x4 hire car in New Caledonia if you are going to explore some of the remoter parts of the island but for around the main towns, a budget hire car in New Caledonia will be enough.
 La Tontouta New Caledonia Airport is the biggest airport in the islands but still doesn’t see many flights. Many flights come from other islands around the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand as well as Southeast Asian countries.

Travellers from other European countries will need to fly to Paris Charles de Gaulle or fly to Asian destinations and connect to Noumea.  You can prebook your hire car for collection at New Caledonia Airport.
