We provide the best car hire in New Zealand. It's really that simple.

We take pride in offering quality, affordable car hire throughout New Zealand. Car rental is about more than A to B, and we'll ensure you enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Our 27 branches span the country – we're in every major New Zealand city, town and airport. Whether you're hiring a car at Auckland airport, Wellington airport, Picton ferry, Christchurch or Queenstown (and many other locations in between), we're ready to help.
