Sue was friendly, patient and thorough in explaining all the details to me. The other staff members were helpful and efficient too. The car was brand new and clean. It was a pleasant experience overall. 🙂
Our experience with NZ RentaCar was excellent. Starting with the pleasant and helpful staff member who offered a great deal of advice regarding our destination plans for the day. The car a Toyota Hybrid was very clean and tidy. The instructions on leaving the car park and returning were explained well.
Competitive rates. Efficient and friendly service. The vehicles (people movers and a sedan) did exactly what was required with no issues. Would definitely use NZ Rent A Car again. 🙂
The personal approach that Sue and Hamish have towards their customers made us feel very special. We were delighted with the vehicle, the pick up and drop off and everything in between. We needed a bike carrier that could carry three bikes; Sue and Hamish went out of their way to ensure we got exactly what was needed. I really cannot recommend the team highly enough and have already booked another vehicle through them for our return trip.
Easy to deal with, I knew I was going to be tight for time on pick up and they went out of their way to make sure things ran smoothly to get out of the airport ASAP. Car was what you expect for cost. Overall great value.
Convenient airport pickup and efficient, friendly staff. We chose an older model which was clean and reliable. Great value!
We hired a car to head to Golden Bay for a wedding. The price was excellent and the lady who helped us pick up our keys was friendly and organized. The vehicle felt reliable and did the job. I’d happily rent from NZ Rent a Car at the Nelson airport again.
The 3 week rental was perfect for us with on terminal pick up, clean car, in good condition and no problems whatsoever during the rental.On top, it was the least expensive we found and good customer service.
Really great experience renting. They offered easy after-hours pickup when other companies would not, and I enjoyed being able to spend less on a slightly older car rather than the only option being some brand new and more expensive. I'll use NZ Rent A Car again for sure!
I decided to try these guys rather than Herzt that I normally use ... it was a good experience. Car was clean and modern.Price was good and they have a booth bar the airport next to the big boys ... I’m glad I supported local !
