Rental cars new Zealand

Hi.. I'm going to New Zealand shortly and I'm looking for a rental car. I can't seem to find any recent reviews on companies. Can anyone please let me know what company they used and if they were good. We r picking up from christchurch Airport. Thanks

You should post in the New Zealand forum.

We used Apex at Christchurch but you need to take their shuttle to the depot as it’s a little away from the actual airport. The car was fine and the price was good.

But I agree with Longhorn, you really should ask on the Christchurch forum.

We have used Apex in NZ a lot, and have no problems at all. I always buy the full insurance cover, so there is never ever a check on the car on return.

We hired 2 cars from Ezi on our trip to NZ last Dec/Jan. We were really happy wiht the cars, price and service. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Agree, you will get more responses on NZ forum.

We usually use the major car rental companies - Avis or Apex in NZ.

We use a small boutique company called Hertz. They have outlets everywhere and with a loyalty card their rates match the second tier operators.
