DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.
I was given a 15 year old car with dodgy tyres.
If you use your card beware. They will find any unsubstantiated excuse to continue to take money from your account. I have had to cancel my card.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
I'm upset I have to give them a 1 rating.

We were from overseas, and rented with them, both in South (Christchurch) and North (Auckland) Islands. The emphasis is "bargain", and they were the cheapest we found (based on the type of cars we wanted). So you will get an older car (well we did), with faded paint and loads of dinks in the bodywork. The mileage was high (150k km and 170k km). The cars are secondhand Japanese imports. However, do not be put off. Both cars were very clean (yes the seating was well worn - but clean). The engines had been well serviced and as such did not miss a beat on our 4 weeks of rental with these guys. A well serviced and looked after car will last for ages, and we did a lot of mileage on both islands. We had 2 minor issues. Neither car had a radio with a jack or any other input, so we could not play any music from our phones. The car on South Island had a wizzy Clarion system (with satnav no less), BUT it was all in Japanese, including the voice which no matter what we did, we could not switch off for 7 days! - my Japanese improved no end! Also the drop off point in Auckland was not clear, so we ended up at their depot (the address provided) not the airport drop off. We had loads of time and their staff were super helpful. So if you want a new car, don't use BRC. If you want a keen price, a safe and reliable car with good staff, then go for it, BRC were great. We booked way ahead BTW, so cannot comment on last minute rentals

Made an online booking on the Bargain Rental Cars website the day before, received confirmation email of my booking. Arrived to pick up car in Christchurch, staff were unaware of my booking, eventually they found it and I was rudely informed that they had cancelled my booking. The manager said "didn't you receive an email saying we had cancelled your booking?" , I had received no email and no phone call to inform me of this. Staff didn't even attempt to find me another vehicle not even a sorry. So after a $30 taxi ride all for nothing , I was left highly unsatisfied.

Do not hire from these cowboys. I hired from the Wellington branch recently. On giving my booking reference I was told "it only says pick up at 12.30pm" to which I responded "yes? It's 12.20pm?" No response. The guy continues to tap away at the computer. "Is everything ok?" I ask, no response. Finally I am told "the car we booked for you is in maintenance. We have another in our car lot in Shelley Bay (across town). We will drop you off there. Is that ok?" ... well i guess it has to be! I found it hard to believe no one realised this sooner and driven it over themselves (not like it was busy, we were the only people there and they had two staff on), or even bothered to call and tell me this was the case and to come earlier if i wanted to leave on timw. About an hour later we finally got to the car and were on our way. I received no apology for the muck up, and they did absolutely nothing to make it right. I even complained to them through their online contact form and haven't received a response.

our visitors used bargain rental cars DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY they arrived at auckland airport after the office had closed and was handed the keys by a lady sitting at a desk next door . The car was not the model they had booked but that was not much of a problem the problem was the car was not road worthy faulty brakes steering out of alignment and a half bald tyre car was full of old subway wrappers when they told the lady who had given them the keys she said come back tomorrow so they had to stay in a hotel they couldnt change the car untill 1130 the next so to cut a long story short they were going to tour the south island but were only in nz for a week only got as far as wellington when they asked if they could return the car to wellington because of the delay in auckland the were charged $400. i have lived in nz for 12 years and never seen such bad customer service. DO NOT USE THIS APPALLING COMPANY

I rented my car from Bargain Rental Cars Glenfield branch, the whole process from my initial phone call, booking, getting the car to returning the car back to them at Sunnybrae Rd, Glenfield, the whole thing was just a smooth breeze due to the efficiency of the staff, they were/are really friendly yet very professional and helpful.
It felt just like borrowing a car from a friend and not hiring a car.
I really and will definitely go back to them for any future car rent and would definitely recommend them to my friends.
I would like to thank all those kind people and tell them I really appreciate their efforts and the whole experience and wishing you all the success.

I contacted several rental car companies on line, and Bargain Rental cars were the only company that bothered to get back to me. The staff member I spoke to was helpful and friendly and I booked and paid straight away. Picking up the car was as planned and very quick and easy, and returning the car 5 days later was also just as easy, and we were also given a ride back to the airport with a very friendly staff member. After my experience with Bargain Rental Cars, I will no longer look anywhere else, and will definitely be back, very reasonably priced, and friendly staff. Thankyou.
