We picked a car up in Christchurch.Finding where Bargain Rental Cars was in Hornsby and then being able to get there due to heavy traffic was a challenge but the 14 year old car was clean and in good shape. Service was prompt, we enjoyed driving our wee car and we did a lot of mileage. Only thing we missed was having a radio but the price of the vehicle made up for that.
As long as you do not want a big flash new car we would recommend this company. They provided what we needed for a very reasonable price and drop off was simple.

Rented twice, 12 days in Jan and 30 days Jan/Feb. Toyota Corolla hatchbacks both. Best price and staff helpful. Cars performed well mechanically, though not new models. Based on this would recommend and use again.

Cars are very dated model and quite dirty, also services are poor, kept us waiting for nearly an hour as the car we booked is not ready, not recommended at all.

I recently booked a vehicle with Bargain Rental Cars from Auckland Airport. I found the process easy and car very affordable. I had to speak to one of the Sales Representatives whilst on holiday and they couldn't do more to help me. A big thanks you to whoever you were.

Would recommend this company again and will use them next time in back in NZ.

Interesting experience. Would not recommend this rental car at all. REASON is that we hired a people mover, we had not taken insurance so paid 76.00 when we picked it up. I have tried to locate where I can contact the insurance person but keep getting told I Never took it out. Yet the money is on the invoice we received as being taken out of our account.
We also accidentally took the van keys home to blenheim from Auckland. On landing I went straight to the post office and had contacted the company ( Namisha) who was very pleasant and told me what to do and sent a photo once it was sorted. It was to be in Auckland over night which it was. BUT 4 days later we received a call from highace-Bargain-Admin saying that 401.25 was being taken out of our account for the towing of the vehicle and the new set of keys which they required as the car was parked in a place where they could not get passed. THIS was totally wrong as the car was not in the way of any vehicle. The lady that spoke to us was going to get her overall boss to phone. THIS has not happened and no matter how many times we call they just cut us off. This company is absolutely not worth dealing with and would not recommend them to anyone

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.

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.

Even tho they weren’t super close to the airport, they were extremely accomodating and helpful in making sure I was all set to go with my car upon arrival, and even gave me a lift upon my departure!
Very easy and straight forward and great value for money! Will use again if Im in Hamilton :)

ChCh Airport doesn't allow you to book a rental car less than 24 hours in advance of your travel date so I called BRC, no problems with them. I returned the car on a Sunday when one of their drop off locations was unstaffed so needed to take it to their alternative location who were a little surprised and only had one staff member running the show. He waited for the clients who were due to arrive then closed up the shop and took me to the airport himself. Pretty good service I thought!

The service provided by Bargain car rentals in Hornby was hassle free. We booked online and the correspondence was instant, including the information and transport from Christchurch airport to pick up the car the service was great. We wanted to add another driver while we were driving to the motel after picking up the car and by the time we arrived to our destination it was sorted.

We would recommend and use bargain car rentals again. Thank you to the team.

I was looking for low-cost people mover van that I can pick up in the city, then I found them on the internet. I tried to book online but I wasn't able to finish it because I didn't have a credit card. I called their office and the person helped me to booked it using a debit card via phone. I got the car and the person checked the car with me. Not a new car but comfortable for 5 adults and 2 kids under 3 yrs old. We used the car for 3 days and 2 nights. Returned it on the day and time that we agreed. Very smooth and easy transaction. No hustle at all! I recommend this rental car company to my friends.

Pathetic experience. Never get BRC for any of the trips ever. The car was vibrating at 100kph which is very unusual for driving long trips. The car wasn't tested and checked before assigning to new customer. Not only that but it caused excessive fuel consumption.

We arrived earlier than predicted at Wellington airport, and the staff were very helpful in telling us to get a taxi, which they paid for, to their town depot. The rental was perfectly adequate. On return, they took us to our hotel in the CBD (the cost of this was actually factored into the hire charges).

Tried to book a vehicle online with these guys. Received confirmation via the website of vehicle availability and that I would be notified by email regarding specific vehicle to be assigned. Thought that was odd, given that I was ready to book and pay online. Glad I didn't! After 3 days and no email I phoned. Only to be told by Ariana (vile, rude person) that our email address was not legitimate (it is). Ariana appeared to have no concept of "customer" and spent her time being rude, patronising and talking over me. Narrow escape!! If this was the front end approach before any money has changed hands, I can only begin to imagine how they would treat people after they paid. Steer clear!

Been travelling New Zealand for a year and a half... Used loads of car rentals, Bargain rentals is the WORST I have ever used... Completely ruined the trip when we had a problem with the car... No assistance from them... Ended up having to pay $240.00 to attempt to try and fix a faulty car that was given to us, had to drive back with a screw driver in the ignition... Got no help from the team with the issue once car was returned. civil complaints tribunal are taking it from here :) DONT USE BARGAIN RENTALS!!!!!
