Cheap Car Hire Christchurch

Welcome to New Zealand Rent A Car Christchurch, we are the proud providers of reliable Christchurch car rental at affordable rates. As part of a national network of local owner-operator businesses, we can guarantee you a first class, friendly car rental service in Christchurch and across New Zealand.

The NZ Rent A Car Christchurch car hire branch is located close to the Christchurch International Airport and also within easy reach of the central city. Widely considered the gateway to the South Island, renting a car in Christchurch gives you the freedom to begin your travels from a central starting point with easy access to wherever you like in the South Island.

The rugged scenic wonders of the West Coast are only a few hours’ drive westward and the secluded alpine vistas of the popular Queenstown region are an easy scenic drive southward through some of New Zealand’s famous Central Otago plains. The historic city of Dunedin is further south, where you can see some of the rarest bird and wildlife New Zealand has to offer.

Heading north the sunny golden beaches of Nelson are always a popular drawcard along with the majestic Marlborough Sounds. Or if time is a barrier why not take a quick day trip and out to the thermal hot springs at Hanmer Springs. At just under 2 hours’ drive away the small well equipped township makes for the perfect outing for travellers of any kind.

On a more serious note, even though the people of Christchurch and more recently Kaikoura have been through some trying times over the past few years, they have shown resilience and strength in their determination to rebuild and recover. Christchurch has sprung back into life, thriving and growing in vibrant post-quake atmosphere. We would like to reassure customers that our Christchurch car rental depot remains fully operational for all bookings from the depot or Christchurch Airport, and to please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes and their effects on travel in New Zealand.

Rented a "cheap and cheerful" cat for about 2 weeks and it was ordered. A lot nicer than we were expecting. Also rented a 2 person camping package. Very clean and convenient and a fantastic price. I'd definitely rent from them again

I have hired cars from this company twice now, the most recent being the last two weeks. Everything from going on line and selecting the type of car, to emailing them with questions, dealing with them face to face, has been an absolute delight. They are great value for the money. We had a Nissan Tida and it was presented nice and clean and we had no troubles the entire time we had it. I am a frequent visitor to Christchurch and I would not even consider going anywhere else. Thank you everyone at NZ Rentacar! Your staff are a real credit to your company. Highly recommend.

Fantastic car rental. Great Subaru station wagon for the family. They picked us up from the airport and took and dropped us off in our rental car at the airport (super convenient).

Booked for the first time with this company. All was good, and the car 4x4 was in good shape. It was clean and spacious, it exceeded our expectations since we booked a mid size 4x4. Pick-up from airport was a short 10min wait after calling them. The car drop of went smooth as well. We would definitely rent a car with them again since the price is very competitive.

I am so glad I found James & Victoria at New Zealand Rent A Car and their excellent staff, Emma and the others I have meet on the many occasions. I visit Christchurch sometimes 3 times a year, to check on my parents and always use this business. Nothing but praise for the way I get looked after. I estimate I have had 15 cars from N.Z. Rent a Car. Prompt Pick up, smiling faces, Air Park arranged for midnight flight arrivals sometimes. I always get dropped back to the Airport for Departure. Well done you guys.Great range of Vehicles available for every budget. Thankyou for looking after me. Bob Grant. QLD Australia

Good experience. Made a phone enquiry after my booking and all sorted prior to car pickup. they came to collect me from airport within 2 minutes of getting outside. Upon arrival at their off airport but closely located office, they checked my DL details etc. against my web site booking and all sorted. Upon return of the vehicle, I explained I didn't have time to fill the tank before returning. No problem was their reply, we can call in and fill up on the way back to the airport. (That saved me a $30 fee). Would happily use these people / company again. All good.

The staff were very friendly and professional. They answered all my queries and, as an International booking, made the online booking process very easy. The vehicle was mechanically sound and served the purpose of transporting a team of 12 players very easy.

I've used this company twice now and would recommend wholeheartedly. I was picked up and dropped off at Christchurch airport promptly both times. I felt they went out of their way to accomodate me. Both times the vehicles were more than satisfactory to my needs. I was given wonderful personal care at all times.
