We are afraid that you will not be able to pick your car rental at Auckland Downtown if you have your IDP but not your driver's license. This is so because International tourists can’t drive in NZ if they don’t have a full and valid driver's license, hence, no doubt an IDP is an important document, but it will not be enough.
Most probably 'No' as almost every supplier provides deals which are inclusive of unlimited kilometers. In case the supplier is not covering it in the car rental's price as unlimited mileage, some suppliers cover it as limited mileage where you pay extra only if you cross the allowed kilometers.
Yes, you can. However, note that there might be additional charges and will only be allowed by the car rental agency if the additional driver meets all the qualifying requirements.
