Robert Christchurch Airport 24 February 2017
The car was a Holden Cruise. didn't like it. It got really hot inside and the AC wasn't very efficient. The automatic and engine were poorly matched. some of the controls were confusing.
Peter Christchurch Airport 24 February 2017
The desk was a few steps from baggage claim so, with the one member of staff being very organised, I had the car sorted before the bag arrived. The car was easy, not great, but of the group booked. The only slight irritation was I couldn't find a way to turn off the radio; only mute it. Nor could the attendant when I returned it. There probably was a way but not obvious and it didn't mar the hire. I think I was as irritated with myself for not working it out !
Anonymous Dunedin Downtown 23 February 2017
The staff in Dunedin is very helpful. We dropped the car at Queenstown airport at 6 am there wasn't enough parking space for your company to park the car. Nobody at the counter or information desk to help. At the end I parked it in the private slot nearby your filled space. You should make sure that there is enough space.

Anonymous Picton Ferry Port 21 February 2017
The car was fine. Staff v pleasant. No one available at the office on our arrival as we were before our designated time. Staff took 30min + to arrive after being contacted. Paper work took a long time too.

Anonymous Auckland International Airport 21 February 2017
Easy to pick up, paperwork all reday with key. Drop off at Wellington Ferry. No representatives working, car park full with no instructions on where to leave car. Chaotic.
Robert Auckland International Airport 21 February 2017
Service, ease of check in and handing back (although still to be absolutely sure that no surcharges were taken as car not inspected on return) Uncertainty on handing back as no person available to check car.
