Leading NZ Car Rental Company opens in Brisbane

One of New Zealands leading car rental companies has just opened at Brisbane Airport. Visitors to NZ have often asked me as a local DE what companies I recommend and I have had no hestitation in recommending this one. It is a company I use and recommend and will I am sure provide some stiff competition for Brisbanes Rental car market

Their website is: http://www.apexrentals.com.au/default.aspx

I hope they do well here - we've used them on 2 trips to NZ and found them to be great.

Thanks Bean I'm going to try them out in Queenstown next week and will come back and let you know what I think. They were the cheapest off all even with corporate discounts with the usual suspects.

THey dont appear to be the cheapest in greater Brisbane but its early days yet. If their Australian service is up to their NZ service then we will have another significant player in the market

Who will you use bean, Alpha or change your allegiance to Apex?

I will use Apex on your recommendation, but will not and advise anyone not to use Alpha anywhere any time.

Brio the jury is still out on this. I have had great service from both companies and will continue to recommend both. As Apex has just opened in Australia we have yet to see how the operation runs. Currently I have an issue with Apex's pricing in Aust in deference to Alpha based on costings Alpha chraged me two weeks ago and what Apex are charging on their website. I have highlighted this differential to Apex NZ and we will see what develops.
