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.

I choose Anzed Rentals every time. I come to Christchurch regularly on business, and Vaughan gives me a fantastic, fast pick-up and drop-off service in the car I'm renting. His service always surprises me, because you don't expect the personal touch and going the extra mile in a busy rental car company. I have found Anzed Rentals to be trustworthy and I always get a quality car at a great price.

I rented a car from ANZED Rentals while on a trip to Christchurch for a special event I was attending. The customer service was exceptional and I really appreciated being picked up and dropped back off at the airport as part of their service. Vaughan and Charlotte were an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Vaughan was very communicative and helpful from the moment I contacted him to hire a car. On the day, he picked us up on time, gave a thorough briefing to my husband who was going to drive the car on NZ's traffic regulations, and roads. He sent driving tips in advance, too, so my hubby knew what to expect. We hired the premium SUV which was everything we could hope for. The car was prefect! My friends who also hired cars from other providers complained about their windshields getting foggy, but we didn't have that problem at all. Our family of 5 had a fun adventure exploring the South Island with plenty of space in the back for our luggages. Dropping off the car back was a breeze although Vaughan himself was unavailable at the time, we were helped by his friend Michael who was very friendly to us. All and all our first NZ road trip experience was wonderful thanks to this local and professional provider. Thanks Vaughan! All the best to you.

Vaughan and his team were extremely helpful, especially in assisting us with after hours pick up and drop off. They provided us with a very reliable and comfortable vehicle for our stay in New Zealand, would definitely recommend them.

During our 6 week trip to New Zealand we rented cars from three different places. Anzed was FAR superior to the others. If you're reading this, let me tell you, rent a car from this place. Not only will you be supporting a small/locally-owned business, but the customer service is personal, genuine, and top tier. Vaughn wants you to have a good time and goes out of his way to ensure that you do. The peace of mind we had while driving one of his cars allowed us to forget that we were in a rental car and to enjoy the country. It was reliable and spotlessly clean. We were given a chilly bin (cooler/ice box) when we picked the car up and that allowed us to keep snacks from melting in the summer heat. He gave us two camp chairs which we used frequently. I contacted him via email once or twice when we were on the road and borrowed some of his local knowledge. I just can't even begin to say enough good things about Vaughn and Anzed. This is who I will use if I have the chance to return to New Zealand. You won't be disappointed.

What can I say?
This is how all rental car companies should be like?
From the start (writing the email, enquiry of price, other questions) to the finish (returning the car) everything was handled correctly with fast response.
Vaughan clearly just wants to give his customers a good experience.
He came to pick us up from our hostel with our car and dropped us off again at the bus station in Christchurch after we did return the car.
All with a positive attitude.
If I would come back to NZ (I sure hope so) then I definitly would look at Anzed rentals for renting a car again.

Looks good at first. However, a bit dodgy at charging some extra fee. Be careful with the oil gauge which could be adjusted, so that it looks full but actually not when you get the car. When you return, the owner would require to full fill the tank, and then the oil meter is actually beyond the full mark. Dishonest behavior.

Anzed Rentals responds:

It is sad to see this review, as it tells us someone has left New Zealand less than 100% happy. Our goal is always that all our customers have a wonderful experience of New Zealand, and we don’t take it lightly that we are often one of the first, and last, experiences of New Zealand a visitor has.

I hear your concerns about the added after hours drop off fee, this is one of the few additional fees we have.

We are sorry that you feel it was unreasonable to charge you more to meet you at 4am than at the agreed 8pm time, but we do not think that $25 per hour for this service was unrealistic.

The fee is clearly stated and:
1. Was discussed prior to this rental,
2. Was covered in the confirmation email,
3. Was discussed again at the time of pick up
4. Is set out in the agreement,and
5. In the booking module the fee for after hours service is also optioned.

Our fuel policy is also quite clear, please return it full, like most rental companies you pick up the car full of fuel and drop it off full, as long as it reads full on the gauge this is fine.

We have never tampered with a gauge (and find the suggestion of dishonesty offensive), simply when a car comes back with just over half a tank of fuel someone has to fill it, and this was your responsibility.

Most companies would treat this as an opportunity to charge your credit card to refill the car plus adding an 'admission fee' This is not our style, I am sorry if this was not appreciated on this occasion.

Best service I've had from any car rental agency anywhere. Vaughan is relaxed, friendly and helpful. No fuss and no bureaucratic nonsense. And the car was all that we required. Worked fine. We had no problems with it whatsoever. If you want to avoid the headaches involved with renting a car, and you want to avoid worrying about whether the agency you choose is trustworthy, just go to Anzed.

After shuffling through all the NZ car rental companies prior to our trip, I was intrigued by Anzed and Vaughan. The owner of the company picks you up at the airport for gosh sakes! Before we hit the road, Vaughan offered us several free items for our travels (cooler, folding camp chairs, and the like) and gave us several tips for driving in NZ (Do you know where the fire hydrants are?) that probably saved me a ticket. Reliable car at a great rate and with great personalized service. I wholeheartedly recommend Anzed.

Everything was easy... no problems... stress-free. I like supporting genuine small business, and nothing more reassuring than knowing the owner is a mechanic ! Vaughan was brilliant, easy pick up airport, easy paperwork quick on the road time, nothing was a problem, and on a hot day the extra kindness of a cold bottle of water to go, was appreciated. He's got it all covered, what you need to take, what you need to know about driving in NZ, what extras you might need,eg in car charging accessory for devices, he's got all the solutions and answers to your questions. I'll be rebooking in late March again with Vaughan. Car was great, unlimited km is good, no ugly add-ons to shock you on your return like the big boys do. Thanks Vaughan
