Anonymous Christchurch Airport 24 October 2017
The staff member on the counter that served us was knowledgable and efficient, the car was new which was a treat. The car was smaller than anticipated, not really ideal for 5 adults, but not a big problem.

The car was just the size we needed. It was great to drive and appropriate in every way for our holiday. It was straightforward to hire and staff explained the insurance scheme clearly. Nothing

I pre-booked and paid for the car in advance and still had to wait around 40mins to pick up the car, at 10pm... staff weren't nearly as apologetic as they should have been...
Rendy Christchurch Domestic Airport 13 January 2016
Easy check in and check out. Car was perfect, having done only 3.5k kms it was practically brand new!! Full of feature. Baby seat and child seat was preinstalled by the time I received the car. Air conditioning was flawless. A pick up location at Christchurch Train Station would be super!
