Top tips for renting a car at Christchurch airport

  • Car hire at Christchurch Airport (CHC) is the ideal way to explore this New Zealand city. While the metro provides access to the suburbs, only car hire can allow you to explore the outlying parts that take you to ski resorts, mountain trails and the adventurous side of Christchurch. Whether you are there in summer for the lakes or winter for the snowboarding, car hire is your solution to a well-rounded New Zealand experience. The airport is the gateway to Christchurch, so you will find the widest offering of car agencies right here.
  • When collecting your Christchurch Airport car hire, you will be greeted by a wide variety of companies, all with helpful and professional staff. The domestic and international Arrivals terminal makes way for large global brands, and just off site are some smaller companies, with complimentary shuttles. Keep your documents on hand for a smooth and seamless transaction, and you will be on the road in no time. Snap any pictures of scratches and inform a staff member before you leave to ensure you can prove you were not the cause upon your car’s return.
  • When it’s time to return your car hire at Christchurch Airport, you will find it very easy. As you approach the airport, there are usually signs directing cars to the garage entrance for car hire parking. Here you will remove personal belongings and lock up the refuelled car. If it is still within working hours, an agent will run through a body inspection with you. Alternatively, if after hours, you can leave the keys in the after-hours box outside the company counter.
  • Dropping off your car hire at Christchurch Airport shouldn't be a struggle, no matter what time you need to do so. While many companies are open quite late, there may be the need to drop off without a staff member present. You can always find the after-hours drop-boxes outside the hire counters in the airport, but let the company know of your plans beforehand. If you can make it there during working hours, it is great for getting your security deposit process started.
  • Book your rental car at Christchurch airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Christchurch airport

  • Where are the car hire companies situated at Christchurch Airport?

    Some on-site car hire companies based at Christchurch Airport are Avis, Budget, Hertz, Sixt, EZI Car Rental, Yes Away and Enterprise. Find them at the Arrivals terminal. Once your transaction has been approved, the car hire agent will escort you to your car. All garages for the Christchurch car hire companies are based outside the exit, facing the airport veneer at a walkable distance. More airport affiliate companies that are based a few minutes off site will send a shuttle for you with a quick call as you land.

  • What car hire companies are straightforward at Christchurch Airport?

    Finding a car hire company that offers easy processes should be a breeze with Christchurch car hire. Daily deals are always a good way to determine which will be easier on the budget, so keep checking KAYAK for deals. When it comes to convenience, you will find the long working hours of Avis extremely convenient. They are generally open from 06:00 to 00:30, seven days a week. SIXT is normally open until 20:00 and Europcar usually until 22:00. If you’d like to get on the road sooner, look to Budget for their Fast Break Pick Up system; it will shave time off your collection. SIXT in general has gained popularity for being affordable and having many unique add-ons.

  • What documentation is required to hire a car at Christchurch Airport?

    An important part of collecting your Christchurch car hire will be the documentation you bring with you. If you are travelling from out of the country, ensure you have an International Driving Permit for the hire. Your photographic identification is essential and then, of course, your credit card for the transaction. Select companies may allow you to pay by debit card, but terms and conditions should always be checked beforehand.  

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Christchurch airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Christchurch airport to off-airport locations include Ace Rental Cars, AeroDrive, Alamo, Avis, Bargain Car Rentals, Budget, Discount Car & Truck Rentals, Dollar, Drive NZ, and Economy Rent a Car.

Pros:

We did not like anything but the online booking process. The rest was painful.

Cons:

Our flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).

7.6 Good

Feb 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was decent, ran fine and fulfilled our needs. It was nothing special or out of the ordinary, just a basic Toyota Corolla, but it did the job.

Cons:

We could've used some instructions on pickup and return - in a foreign country we didn't know if processes would all be the same. A little disappointed that the car was a Corolla when we booked "Camry or similar" since the Camry really is a significantly nicer car.

The car was what we expected for what it was. We had an early flight, so when dropping off at the chch office it wasn’t open at 6am (fair enough) but instead of offering a taxi number on the building to get to the airport maybe 1 or 2 designated spots at the airport could be a nice option. 1800-0900, otherwise drop at the office.

I didn' get the car I requested and paid for, Toyota Aqua Hybrid but the smaller Toyota Yaris Hybrid,which was not suitable for touring for the two week hire. Lacked comfort and road holding, I couldn't maintain road speed often letting others pass, breaking on steep decent was poor and with low gear engaged engine was hemoraging at 30kph.(vehicle only has drive and low) On a previous rental,in Cairns, a similar thing happened when I was given a smaller inferior vehicle. Not likely to return.

The car was very old with stains on the interior and a strange smell. The drop-off location provided was completely inaccurate, as was the included phone number which risked further delay in getting to my flight. On drop-off, they found a very tiny little nick in the windshield and insisted I stay longer to fill out a long form. They have a policy where they take out an additional $2000 from the credit card at the time of the rental so you can't easily challenge their charges later from out of the country, which feels predatory.

I did not want a battery car the technology is not supported by infrastructure outside the city area I was travelling long distances to achieve what I wanted to do in the 5 days There was NO charging facility in Akaroa so could not tour to the areas I wanted to visit There was no instruction given on the app required to login to a charger once I found one that was comparable with the fitting on the car Charging took up to 3.5 hrs as the power supply in the rural areas could not support more than a 25 kw charger Only one charger at some locations so if someone was there before you you had to wait until they finished so lost more time and had to amend my travel plan again as overall I estimate I spent 20 plus hours either charging car or waiting in line for a charger I will never ever use one of these stupid electric vehicles again as you have no flexibility to travel where you want to how you want to when you want to The stupid vehicle ruined my holiday and left me very angry with your company and European over the whole fiasco especially given that Europcar help line was run from The Phillipines by people with poor English skills and absolutely no idea of the conditions in New Zealand The whole concept of using these vehicles for tourist who are freedom touting in a country with limited support infrastructure is stupid On one Charing station once I finally got it to work the estimated charging time was 3.4 hours to 80 percent it was a bloody joke

Pros:

Nothing. Services were not rendered.

Cons:

This rental was the worst customer service experience of my life. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT BOOK WITH ECONOMY OR SCOTTIES. If I could give zero stars, I would. Kayak should drop this company immediately. While booking online, be warned, Economy serves as an umbrella company to many smaller companies in New Zealand. If you are unfortunate enough to have your reservation served by Scotties, be prepared for a terrible experience. In my case, after a flight arrival time change from 1000 to 1400, I called Scotties for a pickup (the only way to get picked up as they are not in the terminal and do not run a constant shuttle). After 2 calls and a 40 minute wait, the shuttle arrived and I was informed by the driver that my booking had been canceled (allegedly NZ law requires a company to only hold a reservation for 2 hours - other companies hold your car for 24 hrs), they had no additional cars available, they were sorry but they could not help me. There was no communication from the company that my reservation had been canceled despite them having access to my email, phone number, and the two phone calls I’d made upon arrival at the airport requesting to be picked up. Still in need of a car, I went online and booked a vehicle with Economy through Travelocity. My credit card was charged and I received a confirmation email at which point saw the company providing the car the was once again Scotties. I called again, now with a valid reservation in their required 2 hour window, and was told to wait 10-15 minutes, the shuttle was on the way. Again the shuttle arrived (35 minutes after the phone call) and again the shuttle driver refused to take me to their office stating that there had been a miscommunication and they did not have a car for me. I called the company back, (which was now the fourth long distance phone call for that day) they apologized for the inconvenience but offered no assistance or compensation for my time or troubles. I strongly recommend you never rent from “Economy” or Scotties. Their non-existent customer service is not worth the discounted prices for their vehicles. It’s a wonder a company like this stays in business. It’s quite obvious it’s terribly mismanaged and only makes me wonder the quality of the vehicles they rent to travelers. I most certainly will never book with them again and encourage others to do the same. There are several other options available that I highly recommend you explore. I ended up booking with Firefly, a partner company with Hertz and located in the terminal. Only slightly more expensive then Scotties, the car was ready as soon as I finished paying, the customer service was excellent, and there was no shuttle or long distance phone call required for pickup I emailed Scotties with a formal complaint and was answered with a shameful sarcastic response from Scott himself. They do not care the slightest bit about customer service. Avoid like the plage. Go elsewhere even if prices are higher.
