Rental Cars in South Island

Hi all - Please respond if you are able to offer any valuable info.

My husband and I are intending to travel around the South Island. We would like to pick up a rental car in Queenstown and return the car in the Christchurch airport.

We would like to deal with a company which offers good, timely service and is reasonable.

Appreciate your feedback

Have a look at APEX as a good starting point

i have been haunting this forum for quite a while researching our upcoming trip and your question has been asked in various forms before and as previous poster suggests apex (apparently now owned by avis) seems to get the most favourable recommendations

just put apex car rental in search box at top of page ..............................have a great trip!

There are several 2nd tier companies operating at both ZQN & CHC, including Apex & Jucy

I've used Avis on the Sth Island many times and have never had a problem.
