With Realistic Car Rentals Albany is right on your doorstep!

With Realistic Car Rentals, Albany, Takapuna and Devonport are only minutes away! Check out what these three iconic North Shore areas have to offer.


When Aucklanders think of Albany, the first thing they picture is the huge Albany mall, one of the biggest in New Zealand. You can find absolutely anything you need here… and a few things you don’t need but might buy anyway. If a modern mall isn’t your thing, then check out the local markets in nearby Silverdale. Beautiful Arts & Crafts, gorgeous handmade jewellery and delicious home-baked goodies are all waiting for you! For the more adventurous types, North Harbour Stadium hosts some of the country’s biggest sporting events, and if you want to do a bit of exercise yourself, then Snowplanet is a huge indoor ski resort that’s open all year round.


A favourite spot for locals, (and not just because of its amazing view of Rangitoto) Takapuna is one of the best beaches in Auckland. Perfect for a days sun-bathing, a swim with the kids, or a walk at sunset, this white sand beach is a North Shore must-see! Takapuna also hosts an amazing Sunday market, with a wide variety of products, from fresh fruit and home-made baking to hand-made arts & crafts and antiques.


The historic village of Devonport sits at the end of the North Shore peninsula, offering stunning views of the City. Mt Victoria dominates Devonport, and you can drive up to the summit in your car rental. North Head has plenty of history and you can explore the underground tunnels and gun fortifications along with a 360 degree view over Hauraki gulf and the City. Stop off in the Victorian village for a coffee and a bite to eat as you watch the ferries pass by.

So there you have it! With Realistic Car Rentals Albany, Takapuna and Devonport are all one amazing day-trip waiting to happen!
