Cheap Car Hire Christchurch

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.
