Renting Nice Cars to Nice People

We are possibly the most highly recommended rental car company in NZ. Well over half of our business comes from returning 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.

Vaughan and Jill are wonderful warm people. They're most helpful and made sure we had all we needed for our first trip in New Zealand. We rented the Nissan Tiida for our 2-week holiday. The car was spotless and soooo clean; easy handling too. Ying and I can't thank you enough for providing us a reliable car for our dream holiday and we'll definitely contact you again for our future visit.

Jill & Vaughan have been absolutely helpful throughout the whole booking, collection and return process :) It has been a most pleasant experience, the start of an incredible road trip in NZ, meeting great people and experiencing (fortunately) great weather. Their service was impeccable - we had delightful encounters with their eight-year-old daughter & Vaughan's mum who gave us great advice on the most value-for-money supermarket, which kept our trip pocket-friendly. Not to forget useful tips on road safety/ signs, how to navigate steep slopes and the list of activities (including the countdown party that we went to at the end of our trip) happening in Christchurch, etc.

The car served us well - it was spacious and comfortable in housing all our luggage and camping essentials as we moved from one accomodation to another, often adding on to the load as we go.

We highly recommend Anzed car rental because of the awesome service!

The process of renting through anzed was great from beginning to end. Vaughn and Gill who run the business are very friendly and helpful. Communication was great before our trip.
They picked us up from the airport and gave us lots of tips when picking up the car. We had a cool box and mobile for our trip, free of charge, which was very useful.
We rented a Nissan tiida for 2 weeks and was perfect for just two people and plenty of room for two large suitcases and other bags in the boot.
We had one issue with our tyre but they were easy to get hold of and give us advice.

We wish Vaughn and Gill luck in their new venture. This will be a great friendly business, much better than the bigger companies. We will highly recommend to friends in the future.

My partner and I had the pleasure of renting a car for three weeks from Anzed. We have rented cars from many different companies in many different parts of the world, and never had a better experience than with Anzed. From communication before the travel date, to the (very early) pick-up from the airport and all through the rental time to the date we left, Jill & Vaughan were just great.

It was the most personal experience I've had with a rental company and I would recommend Anzed to anyone.

We rented 2 cars from Anzed Rentals for a family of 9. Although Vaughan has just taken over the business from Ted, he's been very helpful to us. Jill And Vaughan arranged for us to be picked up from the airport and dropped us off after we returned the cars. They also lent us the mobile phones with nz SIM card (although we have to pay for the charges incurred on the SIM), cooler box and baby chairs without charging extra rental! The cars were also well maintained, giving us an enjoyable ride around South island. Thanks Jill and Vaughan for the lovely experience!

We hired a Nissan Tilda from Anzed Car Rentals (after researching car rental companies in Christchurch) Vaughan (the Owner) picked us up from the airport and delivered us back to our airport hotel when we left 2 weeks later.
We chose Anzed as they were highly rated in reviews, the reviews weren't wrong. The car was a few years old,as we expected, but clean and mechanically sound. The price couldn't be beaten. Vaugn also loaned us a New Zealand mobile phone with sim, a cool box with chilly pack, maps and tons of really useful advice. He, his wife and mother who were helping out with the business couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.
They helped to make our tour of the South Island straightforward and hassle free. I would highly reccommend them.

Highly recommend Anzed rentals. Vaughan was quick to pick us up from the airport, smoothly got us setup with a reliable, clean car and was just as easy to deal with at the end of the trip. All of his wonderful, personal service came at a rate that was competitive with the big companies. Highly recommend seeing Anzed for all your rental needs in the Christchurch area!

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.
