Got charged a cancellation fee even though I cancelled two weeks in advance and because of Omicron. Never been charged cancellable fee from other rental car companies. Will rebook but not with them.

Picked up at the Queenstown branch, which is just outside the terminal, less than a minutes walk. The staff were great and our Corolla drove like a dream!

Absolutely genuine, caring staff who provide first class quality customer service at the branches (P/U at Ak Airport Branch and D/O at Ak City Branch) and on the phone when I called to extend my hire.

GO rentals made everything easy and stress free which made our holiday away that much more enjoyable and memorable.

Affordable prices which is worth every cent with how well you are well looked after.
The vehicle we rented was extremely comfortable, great looking newer model SUV and was fantastic to drive. Will only hire rentals from GO Rentals.

Thank you so much GO Rentals, you guys Rock!!!

Rental car pickup from Queenstown Airport was quick and easy - depot located just across the road from the pick up/ drop off area. Staff were helpful and friendly - and the rental car was in great condition. Thanks!

Every time I hire a car in NZ I choose GO Rentals, always get a new and clean car! Love their APP can save all my info and save the papar! The shuttle driver of Auckland Airport is the best - so funny and help me to take care of my luggage!

Great company - I used GO Rentals in Queenstown and found them so easy to use I did everything via their app and when I arrived they gave me the keys and I was on my way! It was just as quick to return the car too. The staff are super friendly and gave me a few tips on where to find the best coffee - very helpful. I will be using GO on my next trip that's for sure!

We hired a car for 16 days, while travelling to Northland in NZ. Service from collecting car at Auckland airport to returning 16 days later was excellent. Friendly, eficient, staff. Reasonable price. Would highly recomend this company .

This company will charge you a 10% cancellation fee during Covid-19 when we have no other option as New Zealand is in lockdown and we simply CANNOT travel. 
I manage a car rental company in Australia and we have cancelled all bookings without fee as it is beyond the customer's control.
Thank you for my "future credit" but seriously, have a think about the loss of customer's you will experience due to this absolute greed.

I had to very quickly book a rental for an unexpected trip and was very pleased with the ease GO Rentals made the process. In a matter of minutes I was booked with a very affordable rate and given clear details for pick up at Dunedin airport. The whole process was a breeze with lovely personnel ready to answer any question or sort any issues. Would definitely rent from GO again and have recommended them to my friends and family. I am glad they were recommended to me.

Ryan from Claims dept provided me with excellent service. He followed up closely with the 350 excess claim which was withhold pending investigation into the truck that hit my car from rear. Though the other party claimed that I was at fault, Ryan was persistent. He put much effort to look for the company of the truck, speak to the insurance company of the company and get things sorted out. This is amazing! Now the excess has been returned to me.

As an expat kiwi returning home several times a year, GO Rentals has become my go to rental car company. The cars have always been reliable, the staff are fantastic to deal with and checking in and out is a breeze. I particularly like that you and a company rep walk around the car together and make notes about any marks, damage etc. Everything is very transparent. Costs are reasonable and I would highly recommend them.

Go rentals refused to accept my debit card to hold the vehicle bond (which I had done with other car rental companies such as Omega rentals) and instead I was required to take out insurance for the excess at a cost of $180 which I didn’t need (I already had rental car excess included in my travel insurance). Do not use this company as as their policies are inflexible and outdated.

Hi Jocelyn,

Thank you for your feedback.

I understand that every company has different policies regarding credit card/debit card requirements. Our policy is that we require a credit card when opting for the Basic Insurance option, and we highlight this in the confirmation email you would have received upon booking the vehicle.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we have recorded your feedback regarding our policies.

Kind regards,
