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.

My Husband and I had the most pleasant experience with our car rental from Anzed. Teddy was prompt in his email replies to our enquiries before our trip and sent us useful links to familiarise ourselves with the driving regulations in NZ. Upon our arrival in Christchurch, he provided us with invaluable information on our planned routes of travel, which made for a smoother journey on the road. Vaughan also very kindly accommodated our last minute request to return the car before their opening hours as we were catching an early flight back home. All in all, very good service which was worth every cent paid!

This must be the most helpful car rental company in the world never mind NZ. Teddy was extremely professional even offered us the use of some of his CD collection in case we lost the radio in the mountains also gave us good advice driving in NZ and road closures to Kaikoura. The car was a Nissan Tilda, not new, nothing fancy and easy to drive and reliable. Our best car rental experience ever.

We have hired car from Teddy 9 years ago and the quality is just as amazing even today. Teddy remembered us and started coordinating even before I arrived in New Zealand. We had an absolutely smooth transaction. Highly recommended. Keep up the great service and positive attitude Teddy so that we can hire your cars for many more years.

The service we received from Teddy, even before we arrived in New Zealand, was outstanding. Teddy presented all the options for car rentals, advised us that ultimately buying would be cheaper than renting for the duration of the trip, and made sure we knew how to get in touch once we arrived. Teddy picked us up from the airport in a large enough van to accommodate all our stuff, gave us a quick review of driving rules in New Zealand, provided a wealth of just general information, and provided a wifi hotspot and prepaid mobile phone which were invaluable in our first few days. Teddy even gave my husband a ride to the bus terminal when we returned the car and made sure he got off ok to his destination. This may not have been the cheapest option for a car rental, but the personalized, caring service was second to none. If you want to rent with confidence and feel good about your experience, I would highly recommend Anzed.
Quick tip: the wifi hotspot burns through data quickly -- if you choose this option pay for the higher amount of GB up front!

My daughter and I recently rented a Nissa Tiida through Teddy at ANZED Rentals and he was nice enough to pick us up from the Airport very early in the morning and stayed back after hours at the end of our stay to take us to the Airport. Teddy also gave us a mobile phone for emergencies, a GPS (for a reasonable price) and offered an esky and a thermos. After this experience I am very glad we hired from a smaller Company because the service was much more personal. Thanks for the great service and friendly banter (that might be an Aussie term!) Teddy. I would certainly recommend your Company to other travellers.

We rented an 8 seater Hyundai from Anzed Rental . They were very thorough with us in explaining the features and function of the vehicle , lights , brake , the tyres and spare tyre, even the snow chain and the application of it onto the wheels . They also gave us tips on driving on roads in the countryside and other places like snow covered roads eg Mt Cook and Milford Sound . Tips on driving and rest were also given . Lots of appropriate tour maps also provided. some places of interests were also given

We were a group of 4 from Singapore, and were in South Island for 10 days in October/November 2016. We rented a 4 wheel SUV from Teddy of ANZED, and over that 10 days, we covered about 1700km, with stops at Kaikuora, Hanmer Springs, Westport, Punakaiki, Fox Glacier, Wanaka, Te Anau, Milford Sound, Queenstown, Lake Tekapo before heading back to Christchurch.

Before the trip, Teddy sat down with us at his office and gave us a good briefing regarding our route and advised us precautions and what to look out for along our route. His advice to us on following strictly to the speed signs along the route is indeed very helpful because of the many winding and turns, which if they have been negotiated at a higher speed would be quite disasterous.

Throughout the trip the car performed well, and we did not encounter a single problem with it. It was well maintained and clean. The engine was smooth, and we have enough space for 4 large luggages.

We also borrowed a mobile wifi router from Teddy, and internet connections was not an issue throughout the trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our car trip to the South Island and would have no hesitation in recommending Teddy's ANZED Rentals, for their well maintained fleet of cars, and for Teddy's highly personable service. The rental rates are very competitive too.

We rented a Hyundai MPV from Anzed recently. Everything was perfect, well above our expectation. The van was comfortable for the 6 of us and more than enough luggage space. Drives really well. Fantastic service from Anzed. We strongly recommend others to use ANZED Rentals service .

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.
