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.

Totally Awesome. Prompt pickup at Auckland airport. No hassle check in/out. Car was clean and priced right. Two weeks later I dropped my rental car off at Wellington airport location. Again, no hassle drop-off. Promptly took me to the airport. Thank you Omega!

Cheap offers because of old cars, everything works really good, but we had a flat tyre which is not covered by insurance so we had to pay for it ourselves.

Booking with Omega was a simple process, prices for hiring cars are definitely suitable and the service to and from the airport is quality. If I was to return to NZ for another holiday I would definitely choose Omega.

I had a completely satisfactory experience with Omega. I booked on-line, but made a mistake with the arrival time. I emailed a change request and got a prompt response, updating my booking. When I arrived at the airport I phoned Omega and the pickup van arrived within 5 minutes to take me to Omega. I was issued my car (a recent model Corolla - one tier up from the cheapest) with minimal kerfuffle. The car was in excellent condition and performed faultlessly throughout the one week hire. On return there was again minimal kerfuffle and the van dropped me back at the airport promptly. Highly recommend.

Excellent service. Called them at airport after arrival they picked us up very quickly. Less than 10 mins to their car lot. Car was Mazda demio, small car could only get one case in boot. This wasn't really a problem as there was only two of us so one went on back seat. Car was in good condition and drove well. Dropping car off was quick as we took their insurance $15 a day. There was a driver there ready to take us to airport, maybe got there at right time so didn't have to wait. Would use them again.

Great service, they drove the car to us on the Picton wharf and then dropped us back at the airport in Nelson. We rented from three separate rental car companies whilst in NZ and the quality of the car, together with the service, from Omega were by far the best - we will definitely use Omega next time.

We rented a car for south island (4w) and north island (3 w). The experiences couldn´t be more different between the Christchurch and the Auckland based Omega Rental offices! We booked for both islands a economy car, where 2 big suitcases fit in the trunk.
In Christchurch we go a absolutely fine car, old as the description for economy says, but 2 suitcases fit in the trunk, fuel consumption was as described, the tyres were ok, the car was just perfect and exactly what we paird for!
In Auckland we booked the same category, but got a lot smaller car, where we barely could fit 2suitcases in the trunk, fuel consumption was a lot higher and PS were extremly low, so driving up a hill slowed you down to 60km/h although you pressed gas the hardest possible! Furthermore,pressure stated for the 4 tyres were wrong, 1 tyre had only half the pressure, after trying to refill we heared air escaping, so we called Auckland office: they said in a very rude way, your bad luck, deal with it and pay for it, and that it was right at the beginning of our trip and we had a CDW they didn´t give a sh*t about it! And as we asked what the CDW is for, she just laughed, saying our fault we chose to pay for that! Absolutely incredible! The mechanics by the way found a bend in the metal on the inside of tyre, so tyre itself was alright, but the bend metal let the air escape, so we had to pay to get a properly with air filled tyre for 3 weeks. Very horrible exerience! And when we returned the car, another person of this office then accused us of having had an accident or so, because on the one side where some scratches, although these scratches were all already marked in the handing over protocol, but he just said, there are so many written down, so he thinks these ones have to be new.
So all in all, we can definitly recommend the omega rental service in Christchurch, we got exactly what we booked - but hands of Auckland or at least check car size, scratches in every detail, tyre pressure and km!

Sorry to hear that your experience of us wasn't as good as it should have been in both locations, I will follow this up with our team to ensure that this is not indicative of our usual service. Kindest Regards Angela

We hired from Omega on the North Island with a pick up in Auckland and a drop off in Wellington, then hired from them again in Christchurch on the South Island. Both experiences were great. The cars were neat and tidy and the staff were great to deal with. We also had after hours drop offs and pick ups which worked perfectly. I would definitely hire from Omega again.

Great deal on a great vehicle. The Previa van we got was very clean with low kilometers. Fantastic vehicle as we had to move 5 cases for 5 adults in a 21 day trip around New Zealand. Car was comfortable with the little luxuries. No problems with car pickup or drop off
Low fee for Aucland pickup and Christchurch drop off.
Will be looking for Omega Car rentals again when we travel there next. As the driver doing most of the kilometers it was a relief to have such a late model car for the price. Great value.
