We hired a car from Omega for two weeks. We needed a vehicle large enough for 4 adults and a new born baby plus luggage. They gave us a near new Subaru Forester. It was very comfortable for all.
The price was nearly 1/2 the cost of a similar vehicle from Thrifty Car Rentals.
Definitely will hire from Omega again.

Beware, OMEGA charges additional fees to your credit card without authorization after cars are returned. No explanation was provided despite several attempts, despite sending them the scanned contract with the agreed amount. I continue to send them e-mails requesting the money to be returned and I have had to resort to contact my credit card company to as

Details: Rented an OMEGA car from 11th April to 1st May 18. The car was in good conditions and there was no problem at pick up (in Queenstown) and drop off (Auckalnd). Full payment was completed the day car was picked up. After returning the car they sent me an e-mail informing me that they had charged an additional fee as it appeared in their system that I owed them that. I checked my bank account and the hire contract and I did not owe anything so I replied informing them that full payment had already been done and that they should return that extra money that was charged or provide a logical explanation. They replied again the next day without providing an explanation and insisting that the system showed that. Not only that, but on that day they charged another additional fee!!! (in between both, above USD 100) A back and forth of several e-mails of the sort was exchanged, I looped in other company contacts including their quality representative (Belinda Novata), and I have had no resolution. I am really upset about this as the Auckland Office nor quality personnel have returned the money or even explained what happened; just that it showed in the system. I find this outrageous; no difference from stealing money. Please be careful about using this company

Hi Victoria, I understand Belinda has been in touch with you via email, issued a full refund of the additional amount and resolved this issue. I am very sorry that this caused you concern and assure you that this is not our usual level of service. If you do have anything further that you require us to look into please do not hesitate to contact us again, otherwise thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Hired a Toyota Corolla Hatchback (Premium) was a great little car, comfortably stowed two suit cases and two overnight bags in the boot. Service was quick and easy hired for 30 days in Christchurch and 4 Days in Auckland. Great value would not hesitate to use this company again, price could not be beaten would not consider the big guys again.

We were picked up from the Airport and taken to the omega office. The sign in was quick and easy. The car provided was as described and as booked. Was clean and ran well with no issues. Returning to Wellington office also no problems. Staff friendly and helpful, and even gave us a lift back to the city. Rental prices were extremely competitive and excellent value. Overall would highly recommend.

We rented a Toyota Vitz from the economic category for 6 weeks of roadtrip on both islands and we were very happy with our choice. We picked up the car at Christchurch airport and dropped it off at Auckland airport. In both ends the service was quick and friendly and the shuttle service worked great.
We had some major problems with our arrival flights and ended up arriving almost 24h later than planned, which was not a problem at all for our car rental. We could easily communicate by e-mail with the Christchurch office to modify the pickup time and we were even refunded for the evening parking fee that we had organized for our original arrival time. This without asking for a refund I would like to add! :)
We were 2 adults traveling relatively light (2 70litres backpacks) and the Toyota Vitz was spacious enough for us, very handy to park and practical on the small roads. It was clean and fresh at pickup. We had no technical issues.
We had a 10 out of 10 experience with our Omega rental and would definitely recommend this company!

Hired a car for a 4 week trip around the South Island and covered over 4000k trouble free and in comfort, despite this being the season where NZ undertake their major road resurfacing. (Toyota Corolla Hatch Premium 1800 Auto ). The service we received at the Picton branch both at pick up and drop off was excellent. We had previously hired a similar car in the North Island from Wellington and again had excellent service. The only advice I would give to others bookers is that the car is comfortable for 4 passengers but as a hatch boot space is limited and will only take 1 large and 1 small suitcase.

Right from start to finish Omega Rental Cars Nelson staff and service were great. We were met at the airport and within a few minutes at their depot. Kelvin was extremely helpful and we were away in no time to explore the Nelson/Golden Bay area. All round as far as rental car companies go it is one of the best we have dealt with. WE would highly recommend them.

The overall experience was great, process quick and easy, plus unbeatable price! The only small downside is the Wellington city branch is a bit out of the city and can only use bus or taxi to get back into town, not really a walkable distance

KiaOra,
We had a wonderful experience with Omega Rental Cars. We had some queries to start with over 12 months ago, which were answered precisely and quickly. We were picked up promptly after our call from Airport and the driver was very friendly, full of tips and engaging us in conversation. Picking up the car was easy, no fuss with exceptional friendly and great service, with great wishes for a wonderful holiday in N.Z. We have hired a lot of vehicles over the years but never had that said to us. The car was just what we needed and wanted. An older model but had all mod cons and was automatic, booked a manuel. Had a few bumps on the car, but we went over those with staff before leaving so everyone knew what was what. Just as easy to drop off the car in Auckland City, friendly staff again. Great value for the money.

Weekend down in Wellington. Within five minutes of entering the baggage area at the airport, we were picked up by a friendly member of their staff and taken back to their home base. They were very quick and very clear about everything. No issues, great little car. Would recommend and will use again in the future. Cheers Guys.
