Car Rental, from cheap or Hertz/Thrifty

Hi All, Hertz/Thrifty are costing almost double or more than Apex/Juicy/Go Rental? Which one to select for 17days family trip to South Island?

Thanks

Why not the cheapest? They are not rock bottom companies. The ones I see on the roads seem fine for 2 week use. I can't see what the dilemma is.

Apex certainly is fine. I have rented from them with no problems, and there have been many positive reports in the NZ forums.

I've booked through Apex for my February 2014 trip! They seem to have many good reviews and their prices were reasonable!

Apex always rank veyr highly on customer service. The average age of private cars on the road in NZ is about 10 years. Apex use 5 year old cars imported secondhand from Japan. Unless you have special requirements for pick-up or drop off in obscure places I strongly recommend Apex or Jucy. I've used both numerous times.
