I have rented cars from Craig at New Zealand Rent A Car Dunedin for quite a few years now. The process is so easy both obtaining quotes and booking online. Craig is always approachable and friendly. The vehicles are always of excellent quality. I thoroughly recommend NZ Rent A Car Dunedin to anyone.

In April 2018 I rented a car from NZ Rent a Car Dunedin for a week to enable me to achieve all that I had to. I was very impressed with the quality of service and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful vehicle provided. It was a dream to drive and made my stay so much easier and more enjoyable. The personal service was outstanding. Thank you Craig.

Met in the airport by their friendly rep, easy pickup, clean and reliable car, good price, and easy drop-off at airport - everything was very good. We'll rent from NZ Rent A Car again next time we're in Dunedin.

Thanks Craig from NZ Rent a car Dunedin for making my experience easy, from the first phone call you were pleasant to deal with and could cater for my short term rentals needs to fit my budget. You went the extra mile and met me at the airport and delivered a suitable vehicle. I'll call you again if in town! Rob (Hamilton City)

I shopped around and NZ rent a car Dunedin was significantly cheaper than the other options out there.The quality of vehicle was not compromised by the cheaper pricing and service and delivery at the airport was unrushed and helpful.Would recommend to friends and family travelling via Dunedin and will be rebooking this service for any future travel to this destination!

Brilliant, went to 2 other big name rental yards and no cars available. They came and picked me up and only charged $20 for drop off to airport. Highly recommend.

First class service on the two occasions I have used this company. On my second visit to Dunedin, the car was waiting at the airport. Spotlessly clean and exactly what I required. Very reasonable rates, even for a short term rental. I wish all car rental was this easy.....

Have used NZ Rent a Car twice now and the excellent service from Craig never fails. First time the car was delivered to where I was staying and drop off at the Dunedin Airport was no problem. Second time, Craig met me at the Airport with the car. The Cars are very clean and tidy and are well serviced. I would highly recommend NZ Rent a Car to anyone who requires a vehicle while visiting Dunedin. Excellent Customer Service.

The overall experience with NZ Rent a Car Dunedin was first class. From the arrival at Dunedin Airport where the local Franchise owner ( Craig) meet us with a friendly smile, through to the completion of the necessary paper work, the use of a suitable sized rental car and the ultimate return of the car to Dunedin airport. Everything was first class, and I would recommend this firm to any traveller to Dunedin and the wider Otago region. Well done NZ Rent a Car.

Excellent service and car!My family came over to NZ for a visit and I decided to bring them to South Island to see all the amazing towns and cities down south. I looked for a cheaper car rental company and New Zealand Rent A Car was the cheapest that I found. I immediately booked the car online. When we arrived in the airport, Craig was alreadt waiting for us. We were all surprised when Craig opened the car and handed the key to me. The Toyota Estima that we rented was clean and spacious. It is quite new with a low mileage. Our trip went smooth and we never had any problems with the car. Booking the car had been hassle-free and my family were happy with the car that was lend to us.
