Cheap and Cheerful Doesn’t Have To Be Nasty

Saturday, July 18th, 2020

When it comes to budget car rentals in Nelson, we like to think we’ve got low-cost vehicle hire covered. While there are other companies out there offering cheap rates, we’re different. For example, we take great care of every vehicle in our fleet and by doing so, we include a lot of priceless reliability into the small price you’ll pay! That extends into our famous Cheap & Cheerful range!

This range is made up of various makes and models with higher kilometres on the clock than the rest of our fleet. They’re a popular choice for backpackers, holidaymakers on a budget, or anyone wanting to save a few bucks so they have extra cash in their pocket when they arrive at their destination. But just because these cars are cheap, it doesn’t mean they’re nasty. Far from it! They’re well maintained and very reliable.

Our maintenance programme really does set us apart. We’re a proud Nelson company but we have the backing of the nationwide New Zealand Rent A Car Network. Being part of this family gives us access to resources and expertise that other companies don’t have, and that includes fussy detailing from groomers we trust and ongoing maintenance from our own mechanics. This ensures our fleet is always reliable and very well presented. So when you look at our low rates, don’t think we’re cheap and nasty. We just provide outstanding value for money!

We’re so confident in what we offer, that we gladly invite you to shop around. You’ll find the prices might be in the same ballpark but the quality of our vehicles is in a different league. This is important because in this post-lockdown world, road holidays will become even more popular and we don’t want to spoil anyone’s break by supplying a vehicle that is about to break itself! We want our customers to be able to go from A to B, then B to C, then C to D, and on and on and on without a hitch. That is why fleet maintenance is such a big part of what we do at NZ Rent a Car Nelson.

If you are planning a road trip, we advise you to book as soon as possible. Demand is picking up and our reputation for affordable quality has made us more popular than ever. We offer late-model vehicles from compacts to vans, as well as those Cheap & Cheerful vehicles we spoke about. So get in touch soon, then get on your way!
