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.

Great people & excellent service - easy to communicate by email & when my car’s battery died it was replaced quickly for free. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic customer service Our travel plans were disrupted by Covid-19 lockdown and Omega Rental cars were super helpful and easy to deal with throughout. They contacted us and allowed us to keep the car for a purely nominal rent during lockdown, and they were completely flexible about when and where we dropped the car off. The car was also excellent, in great condition and super reliable, and they were by far the most competitive quote we got initially when we were looking around. Wholeheartedly recommend.

We have nothing but positive things to say about our Omega car rental experience. We are a retired couple from Canada who visited New Zealand for 2 months in 2020, one month on each Island. Many aspects of Omega come to mind, including the openness and good people-skills of all of the staff who we spoke to on the phone or in person. I tend to do more research than I should regarding renting things like cars, including looking at reviews, costs, insurance options, change flexibility, etc. In researching virtually every other car company, whether it was with the “big, brand name” companies, or the other NZ companies, I was always left with the feeling that there was something that was hidden in the fine print (and in 2 cases it turned out that there was). And of course, there is the huge, ever-present UK company who is behind much of the activity that a consumer will see when doing car rental Google searches, especially through general searches, or the large travel web sites. Omega is not tied to this company at all, as far as we could see. Certainly, there are some people who have left bad reviews for many services, including Omega. We are not saying one could not have a bad Omega experience, but I would suggest that, if we do our part as a careful and respectful customer, that your odds of having a positive experience is very high. We have rented cars in many countries, and I can honestly say that I was left at the end of our 2 Omega rentals with the feeling that they were the best car rental company I had ever dealt with. During our travels in NZ, we spoke to many people who had rented cars, and also saw other rental car offers, people and facilities, and nothing we heard or saw ever made us regret our Omega decision. Their balance of openness, good customer service, and decent pricing makes it excellent. Their web site catch phrase is “Up front and honest”, and after two 28-day rentals, we feel that they are living up to that stated objective.

I found Omega a great Rental Company to deal with and their rental rates are hard to beat. I rented and older style car but it was very mechaically sound and economical. I am very happy to recommend them to others.

We rented an Omega vehicle for 23 days and drove over 5000 km through both islands. We give Omega 5 out of 5 starts for support and service.

We hired a Mazda Demio for 11 days but had to return it 4 days early because we had to return to Aus because of the virus. The vehicle was great and the staff at Auck Airport were efficient and understanding. Thank you very much. We always use Omega and highly recommend them to everyone.

Good customer service. Good communication. Very helpful. Hired one of the older cars and had no problems with it through the trip. Was able to take the car to the South Island too.

Excellent service - starting well before hire period - with helpful, but not intrusive, travel / rental advice, and a competitive rate and ferry fare provided.

Car clean, well prepared and no problems whatsoever over 5,000km hire.

Thoughtful touch to include map and details of the different delivery point at end of hire.

Only suggested improvement is clearer ( for tired travellers!!) phone info on arrival at Christchurch.

Omega Rental Cars - Nelson. I have used Omega Rental Cars many times and highly recommend them - their service is excellent. This time I had to pick up my rental car after hours, Omega made it very easy. Forms were sent and signed beforehand. I had to get a taxi (you could also walk) for the short ride from the Airport Terminal to Omegas - no problem as there are taxis waiting outside the terminal. On arrival at their office my car was waiting for me with my name clearly shown in the window. All I had to do was place my luggage in the car and drive off. Thanks Omega for making my experience so easy.

We hired a Rav4 from Omega Auckland for 10 days. Everything went smoothly, all the staff were friendly & helpful, and our whole experience was worry free. The car was perfect for our needs (AWD is a comfort on NZ mountain roads!) We highly recommend Omega and would not hesitate to hire from them again.

Picked up car from Auckland and dropped off in Wellington. Car was available upon arrival and drop off was easy - with a shuttle to the airport. Car was as requested and was clean and technically sound - one of the newer Corollas. Took out full insurance. No quibbles upon return. Only comment is about the car - not much boot space - two people and two large cases was fine, but many more people and /or cases would have been a bit of a squash.
