Unfortunately the desk was busy at pickup, not problem with staff just busy from earlier flights. Staff were excellent when we got to counter.

The GPS was very old and not up to date.We expected a Rav 4 and got a basic Mitsubishi

Plenty of room for 4 adults (ample leg space) and their luggage (4 large suitcases + small bags). Lovely car to drive and good fuel economy.
Nothing to report

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.

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...

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!

GerardApril 24, 2014
All good. Just bit if confusion over extra insurance we had to have. We thought we covered everything when booking, excess etc. but had to pay an extra $300 or more.!
As above.!

rentalcars service is good for us searching a suitable car and compare the price.
Hyundai iMax is not realy an ideal car for travelling outside the city, powerless and noisy; airport fees is too high
January 30, 2014
I always try to use budget but fair go some times at CHCH airport it has taken more than 30mins to get the car not enough staff or just too slow anyway I'm trying someone else this time see what happens
