Voted New Zealand's best Rental Car Company for the past 5 years, and counting. Check out the reviews on Rankers.

We are possibly the most highly recommended rental car company in NZ. Well over half of our business comes from returning customers, 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 do all we can to make sure you have a stress free visit to New Zealand. We usually have a minimum rental period of 7 days (and can be 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. Although can help with one way rentals, with pick up or return to other locations.

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. We even do Rice cookers. Think of me as your Local here in New Zealand, if there is something you would like just ask, I'll see what I can do.

In addition to renting out GPS navigation devices, we were one of the very first 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 the data you desire.

Another handy option visitors fine helpful is our camping gear. From complementary Chilly Bins, (Eski or cooler bin) and chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery or the stars, to tents, cooking gear and plastic tubs. Saving you the expense and inconvenience of buying your own, and not to mention more plastic winding up in the land fill when you leave for home.

We look forward to hearing from you. Pop over tot he website to check out these offers and many more.

We rented a Lexus ES 300 from Teddy for approximately two weeks while we toured the South Island. I had first made contact with Teddy months beforehand and he was patient as he discussed the pros and cons of various vehicle choices given our itinerary and the type of car we typically drove, answering questions about insurance options, and arranging for a phone and personal hotspot wifi, etc. When we arrived, Teddy picked us up from our hotel and, after taking car of the rental contract and explaining the rules for driving in New Zealand, he loaded us up with maps and tour information for all parts of the island, activated our phone and hotspot, loaned us a cooler (chilly box(?)), portable chairs, a thermos and cups, and much more!

Although approximately ten years' old, the car was in impeccable condition, both cosmetically and mechanically. In fact, at one point during our stay, my husband remarked that he thought that car handled better than mine, which is the same model but several years' newer!

Teddy's customer service is also impeccable. I have already mentioned the service prior to us arriving and upon our arrival. However, mid-point during our stay, the personal hotspot stopped transmitting. We finally figured out that it was out of pre-paid data (those turn-by-turn directions really eat up the data!), and tried to add more to account, but were unsuccessful. I didn't realize it until after I had called and left a message that it was a Sunday evening (the days of week are somewhat meaningless when you are on vacation!). However, Teddy called me back that evening and was able to fix the issue on his end, then followed up with me the next day to ensure that everything was working correctly. Teddy also worked great with our car relocation service providers, making it feasible for us to do some of the one-way hiking trips that wouldn't have otherwise been possible! I recommend Anzed Rentals and Teddy without reservation.

Thanks, Vaughn, for the fantastic service, that started our unforgettable holiday, with the 3 grandchildren. The spacious and comfortable Van gave room for each to have their own window to view the amazingly diverse scenery, from the Canterbury Plains to Lake Tekapo and Aoraki / Mt Cook, as well as the Hooker Valley tramp. They also counted the rabbits. This trip has opened a window of how little we saw, that we will come back to experience more of the South Island.
Thanks again and we’ll see you again.

My husband and I recently rented a car through ANZED Rentals and were met at Queenstown Airport (as requested). When hearing we would be doing a road trip (as far as Moeraki and Southland) and prior to our arrival we were offered an upgrade. This was such an un-expected blessing as it made our trip more comfortable.
The vehicle had previously been "dented" at the top of the wheel hub (near the bonnet). This was declared to us and it certainly did not compromise the vehicles safety (just feel for the organisation as parts and repairs will take longer than usual - due to Covid-related supply delays).
On behalf of my husband I would like to thank you so much. Communication was top notch and we were kept up-dated and informed throughout. Before taking us back to Queenstown Airport Valentine asked if we would like to do some last minute shopping - lovely gesture but sadly there was no room left in our suitcase!
I would highly recommend Anzed Car Rentals. Thank you very much.

Great personal service, My flight landed and when I switched my phone back on message immediately received to let me know Vaughan was waiting.
At hand over Vaughan took me through a brief demo, car controls, indicators etc and while I would have figured it out pretty quickly I appreciated his care and attention to ensuring I understood everything.
Great price for the 4 days too compared to other rentals I have used previously. Will definitely use again and have already recommended to others.

We rented a car from Vaughan a few weeks ago and he did not disappoint. It was exactly what we needed. He always goes the extra mile to deliver excellent customer service. I have recommended him in the past to a couple of friends for their South Island holiday and my friends came back with rave reviews. We will definitely be using ANZED again.

Amazing service! I was looking for a rental last minute and was so surprised at how fast the process to get a rental out the exact next day. The car was perfect and served us well. Thanks Vaughan.

If I could give Anzed a 20 out of 10 then I would. We were stranded in NZ whilst visiting from the UK earlier in the year and our stay extended to 7 weeks. We had used Anzed on a previous visit and had no hesitation in using them again. We were not disappointed, the same level of friendly help and advice, the same reliable cars (this time a Subaru Outback) and a service above and beyond what could have been expected during an unprecedented global pandemic. If your looking for something a little different as regards a great Kiwi welcome, personal service, good advice and helpful suggestions then go to Vaughan and Anzed, you won't be disappointed.

I researched car hire companies very carefully (because of previous poor experiences), and am SO pleased I chose Anzed.
Vaughan's service was everything he promised - and more.
The Mazda hatchback was perfect for our needs, and a joy to drive. But the main things were the personal touches.
Pick-up at Christchurch was very efficient, and Vaughan made sure we knew the important things about driving in NZ, as well as the best places to get good pies.
Little extras (vacuum flask) much appreciated.
And when we returned the car, Vaughan drove us to our accommodation.
I can't recommend Anzed highly enough! And do hope I'll be visiting New Zealand again.

OMG we loved Anzed Rentals!! After a LOT of time spent investigating NZ car rentals we went with Anzed largely due to the consistently high ratings/reviews - and we weren’t disappointed. As promised it was so seamless. We were promptly picked up
at the Christchurch airport / the paperwork was done promptly at the agreed upon price / the Nissan sedan ran beautifully, was economical on gas, and had ample room for our luggage. Before we left we were given maps and were offered and accepted camp chairs, a cooler and cold pack, and the cables needed to charge our I Phones. What the heck we were thinking.... this is unheard of ... and all at no charge. At the end of our NZ visit and after more than 2000 km we returned the car and were driven to the airport to catch our flight. No extra charges...just a pleasant experience all round.
Look no further if you’re needing a rental in New Zealand!

We rented a car from Vaughan in early December for 18 days to tour the South Island. We were picked up at our hotel and given a thorough presentation on New Zealand driving, specific suggestions about what to see and do and did not leave without camp chairs, an umbrella and a bluetooth device to help with Google Maps. By the time we left, Vaughan seemed more like a friend than anything else. The price was as good or better than anywhere else and the car was in excellent condition.We did not worry once about the car rental process and focused on enjoying New Zealand.During our trip, he emailed us to make sure all was well and we had not been impacted by road closures.When we returned the car, he drove us to the airport.

We have rented cars in several countries and have never even remotely experienced this level of service. This is a locally owned business where service matters and the commitment to do so infuses every thing they do. Do not think of any other company to patronize when thinking of a car rental in New Zealand. You will receive personalized service, a fair price and not have to think about anything else but enjoying New Zealand.

I spent a few weeks on a road trip in the South Island and before picking up a car rental company I did a lot of research. From online reviews, it looked like all major car rental (both locals and international ones) had one main issue: customers complained about the car breaking down or having some issues at some point along the travel. And that honestly is a nightmare!
So I opted for Anzed Rental Cars because it had great reviews.
Vaughan, the owner, is one of the most helpful and detail-oriented guys I've found in New Zealand. Coming from Europe it was unusual for us driving on the left. Vaughan dedicated us almost 2 hours when we arrived to explain to us how car driving is different there and he gave us so much priceless advice.
The car he gave us never had any single issue! I couldn't have been more happy with my car rental.
I wish I could find a "Vaughan" everyone I hire a car!!

Where do I begin. Vaughan is an awesome guy. Due to health issues we had to book a car last minute. Vaughan sorted out a car for us over WhatsApp at an extremely reasonable price. He collected us from the airport himself in the car and put in the car seat for our son before sending us on our way. The car suited our needs perfectly as we had to travel quite a lot up and down mountain passes which it handled with ease. When we dropped off the car Vaughan was busy with a client but as we were in a rush to get to the airport his mum took us over (great to see a real family business). Once he was free he sent us a message to check everything had been ok with the car and to wish us a great return flight. I really can recommend Vaughan and Anzed car hire to anyone.

We had an unexpected visit to Christchurch due to a family emergency. Vaughan was able to provide us with a rental car at very short notice and extended the rental period when we needed more days. The level of service was outstanding and Vaughan was even happy to drop us off at our accommodation when we returned our vehicle. I cannot recommend ANZED Rentals highly enough.
