Apex Car Rentals Recommended

Great service from Gavin at the Queenstown Airport. Easy pick and drop off.

Tip: get the full insurance coverage. For just $25-$30 or so a day, you get peace of mind from theft, damage, loss. No need for inspection upon pick up or return. Even if the car was stolen or you return it a wreck, you have no liabilities. Also eliminates the fear of being charged for nicks and dents when you return the car.

Of course I'm aware, Apex for our needs came out more expensive for newer cars than all of the majors we were considering actually. Perhaps the savings with Apex are for longer rentals?

The days of Apex being considered a cut price operator in my opinion are long gone. The provide extremely good service at what is considered a fair price. The size of the company has over the years increased considerably to an extent that the only real difference between them is on site airport premises. In all other aspects Apex are very competitive.

I just wished that some of their customers wouldnt get lost going the wrong way on a Wellington motorway in peak hour traffic as we experienced an hour or so ago. But like a good kiwi we hopefully sent them in the right direction.

I loved their service. I booked in advanced and they always answered my questions. Everything get right. I had many places booked and the car was always there for me. I went to Christchurch by train and the car was there at the parking lot with my name. I made the arrangements at Grey-mouth train station. Just fantastic. I had a car in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. No problems and everything was just fine Strongly recommended.

We have just returned from a NZ holiday. Hired an Apex Ford Focus in Wellington and drove all the way north and dropped it off in Auckland. No troubles at all, friendly guys at each end. The guy in Wellington was scared of Auckland, the guy in Auckland had a huge smile on his face and just said thanks, hardly a glance at the car, didn't even want to see the paperwork. I would recommend them to anyone.

We used Apex last weekend for a quick 2 day visit.

Nice and close to the Airport, the price quoted was awesome, we hired a 6 seater people mover.

Vehicle was neat and tidy, certainly not new but modern and discreet, not covered in company logos etc.

The guys were super friendly and helpful, paperwork was done and dusted quickly.

We booked through Flight Centre Queen St in Auckland so everything was sorted and clarified.....all too easy!!!

Kiwiguy what were the rates charged by the Flight Centre and did you use them rather than book direct?

* * * * * FABULOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE, COMPETITIVE PRICING & BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, FUEL-EFFICIENT CAR!!

Apex Car Rentals - Cairns, FNQ

- were not only completely professional & efficient in their customer service, but they went above and beyond to accommodate our needs as well as provide us with a brand new, clean, reliable and highly fuel efficient car.

We were collected from the airport - free of charge, right after our flight arrived, checked-in efficiently, sent off in a brand spanking new car with only a few km's on the clock, allowed a little extra time at the end after one simple phone call and found pricing very competitive and website transparent and easy to use. No hidden fees. No crazy excess charges. Great extras should we have needed them, and to top it off - driven back to the airport in time for our flight. Absolutely exceptional service - will definitely book with Apex next time to Cairns, and anywhere else for that matter. Highly recommended. Very, very happy customers :) :)

Now why would someone ( a first time poster) who lives in Melbourne Australia recommend a company operating out of Far North Queensland Australia on the Queenstown NZ forum?
