From Fox Glacier to Queenstown


i am planning a short trip to south island with only 6 days.

At the moment i am stuck as i had planned to leave fox glacier in the late afternoon or early evening (after the half day glacier hike) and head towards queenstown but there does not seem to be any coach/bus/shuttle service/train that departs from fox in the afternoon, nor are there any car rental companies at the glaciers.

as i am on a really tight schedule and can't spend another night at fox, it seems to me i might have to rent a car from greymouth.

Any suggestions ??

if car rental is the only way to go, any suggestions on reliable budget cars?? i have check online and saw a few such as : nationwide / national / ezi rent / alamo -are these reliable, good companies ?? i know jucy, go rentals, apex have minimum days rental that doesn't suite me or they don't have pick up from greymouth.

Any advice would be great, thanks !!!
