Renting Nice Cars to Nice People

We are possibly the most highly recommended rental car company in NZ. Well over half of our business are from our regular customers and their friends and family.

Due to the time we spend on each rental - making sure our cars are maintained and presented to the highest of standards (for example even treating all glass surface with water repellent) - we are not able to do short rentals. We have a minimum rental period of 7 days (and more during summer and over the Christmas Holidays). Exception is of course made for our regulars.

We are based in Christchurch and mainly do Christchurch to Christchurch rentals.

We do our best to help make your holiday a fantastic one. We provide without charge, free rental of NZ mobile phones, NZ SIM cards (data capable), plenty of maps, tourist brochures, child seats and many other items. In winter, we have snow chains and ski/snowboard racks for a fixed per rental charge and will even demonstrate how they work.

In addition to renting out GPS navigation devices, we are one of the very first two companies in NZ renting out mobile internet devices (for those who need internet connection wherever they are, even in the car). These devices act as personal WiFi Hotspots wherever there is mobile phone reception. We charge a small rental charge and whatever the phone company charge for data.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I rented a Nisson Latio for 15 weeks for $31.50 per day(discount for 3 month rental). It was an automatic transmission with power stearing, power brakes, power windows, plug in for MP3 player, radio. It was perfectly clean and ran very well. It had just right around 100,000 km on it when I received it. Teddy loaned me a cooler, with 3 things to freeze to keep it cool, 2 lawn chairs that folded into carry bags, a very detailed 100 page book of maps of the whole south island, and numerous travel brochures. I used all of these and really appreciated them. The maps were priceless; much more detail than the National Geographic map I brought with me. Unfortunately late in my stay I backed into a 2 ft post that I could not see and broke the tail light and badly dented the rear bumper. Teddy took it in stride and provided a slightly newer Latio with only 75,000 km on it as soon as I arrived at his location. He promptly filled out the necessary paperwork for me to report this claim to my travel insurance, which covers the deductible(NZ calls it excess). Car repairs in New Zealand appear much cheaper than they are in Montana. I found that google maps on my iphone worked great all over the island, as Teddy had told me it would, which saved me money. I talked to Teddy several times during the time I rented, as I had also borrowed a cell phone the first few days because my SIM card wasn't working correctly. Teddy was always quick to pick up the phone, very courteous and very pleasant to deal with. Both cars were in pristine condition inside and out and ran beautifully. I also highly recommend doing the driving in New Zealand online quiz and information video Teddy recommends until you get everything correct. It helped me a lot. I have never felt like recommending a car rental agency before but this experience was too wonderful to not report on. I struggled to know what agency to book with; I am very glad I chose Anzed. You can't do any better than this.

Rented Lexus ES300 for 10 days. It was an excellent choice recommended by Teddy. Teddy provided valuable driving tips for South Island and we followed his advice in order to stay safe. Lastly, we had a puncture tyre on our first day which is also Easter holiday, Teddy tried his best to help us fix it. Thank you Teddy for making our stay memorable and safe. Highly recommended.

Can not speak more highly of our experience with Anzed Rentals. My experience from the very first email was so profession and helpful. The service from Teddy and the quality of the vehicle was second to none.The car was a pleasure to drive and was certainly large enough to fit all of our luggage in four people. Teddy also helped my family out when we discovered that we had lost an item on a plane in Christchurch and had no way of retrieving it because we where back in Australia. He tracked the item down and posted it back to me which he did not have to do but kindly went out of his way to assist us,considering the airline would not help me out at all. Would highly recommend this company.

We cannot recommend this business highly enough. Twenty out of ten would have been more accurate. The car was beautifully clean and nothing was too much trouble for Teddy to explain/demonstrate to us. Having CDs, the mobile phone and cool-box etc was just so generous. This business deserves the excellent reviews it has got.

We highly recommend Teddy at Anzed! His email communication with us prior to the trip was thorough and prompt. He was very welcoming upon our arrival in Christchurch. We greatly appreciated his friendliness, patience and thoughtfulness. There were no surprises and our month long rental went off without a hitch!

Teddy was very helpful and accommodating. It was a pleasure doing business with him.
The car hire was reasonably priced, ran smoothly and along with the car came an esky, dvd's, and items left behind from previous clients such as gas cylinders and sandfly spray. On return of our vehicle, he drove us into Christchurch where we had an entertaining time in the Adult playground. Nothing was too much trouble.
Thanks very much, we will certainly be recommending Anzed Rentals to our friends.

I normally select most things based on independent reviews from customers. Anzed had good reviews and they were very accurate. We are extremely pleased with both the vehicle and Teddy who provided us with comprehensive guidance for our trip. Paid employees from larger operators just provide a map and answer a few questions, not so with Teddy, he took time to explain important points. The vehicle was clean and very reliable as well. If we visit NZ South Island again Anzed will be our first choice for car rental and wholeheartedly recommend them to others.

My partner and I chose Anzed Rentals a) because we find 'local/family run' is usually better in terms of service etc. and b) because of their good reviews on Rankers. We can honestly say that Anzed exceeded our expectations and would recommend them to anyone. We had the car for 2 months. It was reasonably priced, there was no trouble arranging transfers for us to and from their office, the car was in perfect condition and performed really well and Teddy briefed us well on NZ providing maps/info etc., they helpfully accommodated changes to our hire period when needed and last but not least, when we returned the car less 3 hub caps (2 were stolen at New World car parks - be warned) Teddy was really understanding and simply charged us what was fair to replace them - no rip-off. All in all Anzed are probably the best car rental company we've had the pleasure dealing with and they fully deserve their excellent ranking.

ANZED Car Rentals in Christchurch provides an excellent, very efficient, prompt and reasonably priced car service. Teddy picked us up and dropped us off at the Airport, he was very helpful and friendly, giving us advice on the best routes for the destinations we had planned to visit. Although the Mazda 2 Hatchback we rented was about 10 years old, it performed well, was reliable.....we did travel over 1800 kms around the top of the South Is on lots of winding roads and had no problems with the car! Would highly recommend ANZED Car Rentals and would definitely use their service again.

Anzed is easily the best car rental company we've dealt with. We experienced excellent service starting with our first email contact right the way through to when Teddy dropped us off at the airport. Teddy's fast, efficient, super friendly and very personal service is beyond compare, and the car was great too. The mobile phone with cheap calls and the esky / cool box / chully bun Teddy provided made our trip so much easier. We definitely recommend Anzed to anyone who is looking for a car to rent in New Zealand.
