Rented a car from Christchurch airport. Very happy with the service. Friendly people, professional and trustworthy, appreciated having an actual person to contact that was easy to work with (have had issues with call centres not being helpful with larger comapnies).Would hire from them again.
We rented a car for local travel in Christchurch for 8 days in December 2021. The vehicle was older but clean and reliable. Perfect for our purposes. The booking and communication process was smooth and efficient, and the service provided by Vaughan was excellent. We will rent again from Anzed Rentals.
Vaughn was great, fair pricing, friendly service and patient. Wonderful service will definitely be back
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 rental company! Happy to put up with and answer my many questions before hand..... But I need not have worried, everything was smooth, great communication, lovely friendly guy and awesome little car to travel the South Island in.
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!!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Chiara it is such a delight to have customers like you and Dalle. I must have the best job in the world, I certainly meet the best people. I loved hearing you passion for what you had experienced in New Zealand.
All the best for your next adventure,
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Allister for your Kind review, I was so pleased I could assist in you Surprise visit,
All the best
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Paul for your kind words, it so nice meeting you and Holly and being able to assist you was our pleasure, I look forward to meeting you on your next visit. All the best.

I toured South Island for 2 weeks with my family and chose Anzed Rentals because it was competitively priced and had great reviews. I will add my endorsement towards all those positive reviews as Vaughan is a genuinely nice bloke to deal with. From the moment I contacted him from Malaysia via email until he dropped us off at our motel at the end of our trip, he had made sure that my queries and concerns were looked into.
The ride we had reserved was the Mazda Axela which was supposed to be about 5 years old but unfortunately due to a cock-up we were offered other models as an upgrade without extra cost. We settled on a 15 year old Lexus ES 300 (3 liter). Though it was showing its age, it was still a good, reliable and clean car to drive around South Island's roads and mountain passes. It had enough power to tackle the steep mountain passes and braking/engine compression power to safely slow down the vehicle when going downhill with much dignity. I would expect the 2 liter Mazda to be noisier due to its lower engine capacity. Apart from some minor niggles, we have absolutely no issues with the Lexus and on hindsight, it was probably a better ride to tackle the rural roads of South Island. Fuel economy was a concern but upon top up at the last gas station, I worked out the consumption to be 9.25 liters per 100 km. Pretty respectable for so much high power driving on the mountain passes and valleys.
Throughout our journey, Vaughan kept in touch, especially when we had a scare after the floods washed out all 3 road links between Christchurch and the Mt Cook region where we were at. This was 3 days before we were scheduled to fly off from Christchurch. It was comforting to know that we had a local to advise us of the situation and offer alternatives.
All previous reviews were spot-on in saying that Vaughan spends more time with you prepping for the journey which is in contrast to renting from the usual international car rental companies. I fully recommend!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Thean, it was a delight to meet you and your family, thank you for your gracious words, yes the Lexus are well loved and often requested, we have now updated this models for the 2020 season and have had great reviews of the new model also.
It was a really blessing to have you as a customer I am so fortunate at ANZED, I seem to get the best customers.
We had a great experience renting from Vaughan at ANZED rentals. The price was by far the best of all the rental companies we checked out and the service was impeccable - pick up and drop off at the airport. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting NZ.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Cat.
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Peter, always a pleasure!
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Kym, it was lovely to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again the next time you visit.
Very friendly and flexible service from Vaughan. If you’re after great service at a fair price then ANZED are for you.
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Peter, it was so nice meeting you and Robyn. I am very pleased you had such a great adventure, and free of any car dramas. Thank you for your recommendation.
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Josie, it was lovely to meet you both and I am so pleased that you had a great time. I believe New Zealand is a special place and I desire to help others experience it, and see the New Zealand I know. You will always be welcome back here Josie.
All the best,
Uwe De Poortere
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Uwe for your kind words, it was so nice to meet you and Evi, and hear about your wonderful adventures. All the best with your North Island leg of your tour, I look forward to seeing some more wonderful Photos. Vaughan
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.
Excellent very friendly, generous service. The car ran perfectly and was excellent value for money. Definitely recommended.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Hadleigh, it was lovey meeting you both.
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.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your support and custom Ron, it was so nice to meet you both, and we would love to have you Down under again some time.
All the best
We received exceptional, personalized service, from airport pickup to car return.
Vaughn, the owner took time to offer guidance and suggestions - very valuable!
The vehicle was in terrific shape and served us really well throughout the 14days use.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your review Daniel, it was such a delight to meet you and your family. I am so pleased you had such a great visit.
All the best
Heather R Brisbane Australia
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
Anzed Rentals responds:
Heather, thank you for making the effort to find us, I look forward to seeing you again soon, I will have the wee Demio ready for you.
I have rented from Anzed for at least 15 years and always get first class personal service. This time it was for 24 days. The car was an excellent choice for my needs, we had no problems on my travels around the South Island. The new owner Vaughan is very helpful and a worthy replacement for the previous owner Teddy. The mobile modem was a tremendous help.
You have to hand it to Vaughan and the Anzed team, they know what you need and they are happy to give it to you. We booked a car for a couple of weeks and left with a chilly box and a couple of chairs as well, having declined their kind offer of a New Zealand PAYG SIM card. The car was fine and the chilly box was inspired. Picked up and dropped off at the airport too? How could it not be a ten out of ten? We'll be back.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your kind words Kenny, and 10/10 rating. Our goal is your expectations exceeded, Any additional items required, I will try to supply, it just isn't practical bring everything you need, and I am opposed to people buying and then throwing away, especially when it can be borrowed and shared around.
All the best
Best customer service from a car rental company that we've ever experienced. Ok, so they're a small company - make that tiny compared to the multi-national behemoths, but that's way more than compensated by the customer service and low prices. We were picked up from the airport at the stated time, given the most thorough briefing on the car itself (where the petrol flap release was etc etc - i.e. stuff other companies never do); as strangers to NZ, were given some hints and tips on driving there, where to find the cheapest fuel - and even got some tips on what to go and see on our route around the South Island which was most welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to use ANzed rentals again. Highly recommended.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Noel, it was so nice to meet you both. I live to help make visitors trips as good as they can be, thank you for appreciating the service.
All the best
We rented an Estima from Anzed Rentals for 3 weeks, leaving from and returning to Christchurch.
I can underline and acknowledge all positive comments and opinions which can be found on any portal. Vaughan has been very attentive and helpful in every respect and everything worked very smoothly.
I can truly recommend him representing a true and passionate owner-driven business!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you so much for your kind words Nicolaus. It was a pleasure dealing with you and offering you service during your visit to the South Island.
Vaughn of Anzed car rentals did a great job of helping us on 14 day tour of the South Island . He picked us up from the hotel , organized the suv no worries complete with maps, chilly bin, chairs, and a contact mobile phone . we had a great trip and Vaughn even drove us to our motel after we delivered the suv back to his depot Very good personalized service , i highly recommend this company .
Anzed Rentals responds:
Paul it was so nice to meet you both, thank you for choosing ANZED, I look forward to serving you again when you return for your next leg.. to see all those bits you missed this time.
ROBERT C DOWNS JR
Anzed Rentals is a family company that make customers part of the family. Available only in Christchurch, their services are limited to the South Island, but they provide great service, clean serviceable vehicles, good rates and extras such as bottled water, loaner coolers, and even loaner phones. For visitors unfamiliar with NZ driving rules and roads, the owner provides personal summaries of traffic safety and itinerary suggestions (especially where traffic is heavy, roads rough or gas stations scarce). Business site is off-airport, but owner picks up and drops off passengers, as needed. Leave a little extra time in your schedule as there are only two employees, but they are great.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Robert, your words are too kind. We love meeting customers like you, and have had so many great experiences this summer.
All the best
A very professional service , with excellent communication, before, during and after we used the service .
Vaughan was excellent and made sure we had no worries on our journey and the choice of cars was superb .
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Steve, I am so pleased you have a great trip.
All the best
A++ service, very personable genuine people. The extras available within the rental cost are an inspired touch. Don't go anywhere else folks!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for using ANZED Wayne. I hope the cat is well settled back here in Christchurch and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thank you so much for your kind words.
Perfect car rental! Communication before and during our rental period was quick, friendly and helpful. Vaughan was superbly accomodating. The Nissan Tiida we rented ran like a charm and was quick, comfortable, quiet and very spacious. The additional camping gear was well stocked and clean. All in all satisfactory, I would definitely recommend anzed rentals.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Moritz, it was a pleasure to assist you to have a wonderful experience of New Zealand. The Tiida is a great (big) wee car and combined with the camping gear has proved very popular.
All the best
On short notice I booked a Mazda MX-5 for a couple days in Christchurch. Vaughn was more than happy to help out and went above and beyond to do so. Great customer service, and really made me feel like I was looked after instead of being passed on with a crappy car. The trip was so much memorable to this and I really enjoyed every moment of it.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Joshua, it was a great concert and the MX5 is such a fun wee car, I am sure ou will remember it for years to come.
We rented a Nissan tiida fro just 2 days - a flying visit from Christchurch to Greymouth over Arthur’s Pass. A lovely reliable car. We will definitely use Anzed rentals again. Vaughn was so friendly and understanding - nothing was too much trouble. This is the place to rent a car if you’re in the Christchurch area and close to the airport.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Jane, Not a problem. I would love to meet you both again, in better circumstances.
All the best
I have used Anzed on three occasions when visiting from Australia over the last 5 years. Customer service continues to be excellent. Highly recommended.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you John.
Great customer service.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Simone.
It was absolutely awesome experience with ANZED rental company! Vaughan (I guess the owner) was friendly, helpful and really kind. He didnt want any deposit or credit card. He just simply rented us a car as it should be. Car was clean and everything worked well! The price was 3x lower than in other companies (where you have to leave a huge deposit) and car was excellent! We got plenty of traveling tips and even drop off to hostel after returning the car. Before our trip I was looking for a car and comparing prices at least for 3 hours and then finally found the ANZED! Thank you and I really recommend this company. Thanks Vaughan and best wishes to your company!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your Kind words and best wishes. I enjoyed our discussion on the drive to your accommodation
All the best
We had a really nice time with car from Anzed Rentals in NZ's south island. The owner Vaughan was friendly, went us through all strange thing of driving in NZ and shared with us some tips what to see. Car (Nissan Tiida) had no problems, good and easy going vehicle.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Stepan I appreciate your kind words and feedback, it was so nice meeting you Young ones.
All the best
Definitely recommend this hire company, great affordable rates, car was perfect, served us well on our road trip through the mountains and around the west coast. Also the staff are very friendly and helpful, will be going back again next time I need to rent a car!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for the kind words David, it was great to meet you and Kate, I trust your time in New Zealand continues to go well and I look forward to assisting you in the future.
Anzed cars are reliable and the service is trustworthy. This is the 4th time we hired their service. What more can I say?😁
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your kind words Cindy, it was lovely to see you back, and I look forward to seeing you again sometime.
This is what I hoped for and this is what I got.
a) picked up at hotel by friendly down to earth hire car company owner, Vaughan.
b) short, sweet run down, humorous banter, set off on 19 day South Island road trip brimming full of confidence with the low down from Vaughan.
c) Subaru Wagon ran like new, never missed beat. Auto/manual set up is a dream for NZ roads.
d) Received emails from time to time from Vaughan about any adverse conditions we may encounter.
e) after 19 days of one of the best holidays we have had, drove into rental site to a welcoming greeting from Vaughan. He then gave us a lift to our hotel in the Christchurch CBD.
Entire experience? PERFECT!
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you for your kind words Paul, that is my aim, personal service, and the best Kiwi Experience possible. It was lovely meeting you and Judy and so pleased you had great weather.
Hired a car from ANZED in Sept '18 for a 12 day drive around the South Island. Great company to deal with. The car, whilst not new, was in great working order, and did the job very competently. Vaughan, the owner of ANZED was helpful in any way possible. He picked us up from the airport, then took us to his office & sat down with us for about half an hour giving me very valuable advice for our upcoming adventure. I had an ipod that I was keen to use in the car for our long drives, and he went to a lot of trouble to make sure it connected to the car's audio system. He also provided us with a mobile phone, and an esky, both free of charge. At the end of our trip, we took the car back to the ANZED office, and Vaughan then dropped us at the airport. Great service indeed, couldn't ask for more. Much better than the impersonal service you receive from the larger companies. I totally recommend you give ANZED a try if you intend to hire a car in New Zealand.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you Colin, it was a pleasure meeting you both.
Quick trip over from Australia,
Anzed had us picked up on arrival to Christchurch and had everything sorted with hire within half hour.
Vaughan supplied a GPS to help us get around which was great.
Car was perfect for requirements, well presented and maintained.
Great experience, I will definitely use Anzed Rentals for any future trips home.
Well done Vaughan and Jillian, I suspect this enterprise will be very successful.
Overall, I would say that my experience with Anzed Rentals was very memorable and great. Having a human element definitely makes things better. No need to think twice before recommending Anzed to others.
Starting with the rental inquiry, Vaughan and his wife already proactively reaches out to their customer. This time, as it was our first time going to NZ, we definitely bombarded them with questions from what car to actually get, how about additional drivers, the need for snow chains, any other suggested places to go, etc.. Here Vaughan was very accommodating and always responds in a timely manner. Already from this interaction we can already see the level of service that they provide and so we are sold to continue with our car rental with Anzed.
For the SUV we got the Jeep Compass, we were fetched from the airport by Mary, since Vaughan was a on a trip during that time, then we went to their garage to have the documents arranged. During this time we were offered again if we want to take any of the stuff that they let the renters borrow like chillers, bottles, rice cooker, etc. Of course we got the chiller for food storage to be used for the daily driving to be done. Giving the car back was easy as well as Vaughan went to the place we were staying even though it is already around 9pm on a weekend to pick up the car, also here I mentioned that we would like to get a smaller car after one day which he already arranged for us.
For the small car we got the Mazda Demio, we again were fetched from the place we were staying which I believe is already quite far, then arrange the documents back at their garage. He also took us around the city for a bit telling the story of what happened during the big earthquakes. When returning the car, we just drove it back to the garage then Vaughan drove us to the airport.
The cars we got, albeit not the latest or fancy, are very well maintained and was pleasure to drive along the nice roads through the South Island. Till next time!!
My wife and I spent 4 months in New Zealand in the first half of 2018, since I was able to visit the University of Canterbury for a semester under their Erskine Fellowship programme. We were keen to have an inexpensive, but clean and reliable rental car for the entire period. Since this was going to be a significant investment, we did a lot of internet research and found that Anzed Rentals had not just the best prices for long-term rentals, but also by far the best customer reviews of any car rental company. We therefore decided to go with them, and we were not disappointed.
From the off, Vaughan was excellent in all of his communications with us, responding very promptly and helpfully to email enquiries. We spent most of our time living in Christchurch, but also went on two extended road trips. The first, longer one was a 2.5-week tour around the South Island. The car we had settled on as ideal for Christchurch was an older model Nissan Demio. However, we were a little concerned about using this for our long road trip, since the boot space in this car has no cover, so our suitcases would be visible. When we mentioned this, Vaughan offered to let us us a different (more expensive) car with a covered boot for the trip, at no extra cost! He also offered to provide camping gear etc for our trip (again, all for free), and was fantastic in picking us up from the airport on arrival and dropping us off there again on the day of our departure. On top of this, he came into the office especially for us early on a Saturday at the beginning of our second road trip, in order to make sure we had snow chains and knew how to use them.
The bottom line is that we can't recommend Anzed highly enough. They really are fantastic -- they offer brilliant value for money, and their customer service is in a completely different league from your standard large-chain car rental companies. We'll definitely use them again if we return to NZ.
Anzed Rentals responds:
Thank you so much for your review and kind words Christian, it was lovely to meet you both, a pleasure to meet your needs and assist you to enjoy our beautiful country. I am so pleased you will have fond memories of your time here and do look forward to meeting you again one day. We also look forward to meeting family and friends as they come to 'Middle Earth' and experience the difference.
The best car hire experience I've ever had. As well as a great car and no insurance issues, Vaughan threw in a thermos and chilly bin (esky/cooler)! Vaughan also gave great travel advice, and I visited several great places not on my original plan thanks to his tips.
I also hired some camping gear from Anzed, which made the trip pretty easy too. Thanks so much, I can't recommend you highly enough.
Anzed Rentals was the perfect choice for us. They delivered very personal service from first contact until they dropped us off at our airport hotel in Christchurch! They were easy to contact and communicate with both prior to and during our trip. They even provided links to "driving in New Zealand" rules and tips to prepare us for the driving on the left-hand side of the road experience! Beach chairs and a cooler were also included. We found them accommodating, pleasant and helpful. We had a 2009 Subaru Outback station wagon which was a good model both for hauling gear, and for driving on the winding roads. Highly recommended!
Excellent service and a great car (AWD Subaru Legacy) . Many thanks to Vaughan for going beyond the expected and helping with advice and equipment for a camping based tour. If you want personal service and excellent vehicles look no further.
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.
[apologies for writing this review late]
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.
New owner, but the same good service. Se you next year!
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.

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.
Just to say thank you and how impressed we were with your services. Everything went really well and so efficiently. We weren't kept waiting at all and the car was good.
We will definitely recommend you to others.

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.
The best customer service I have experienced.
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.
Dave and Karen Nelson
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 and ANZED were very accommodating and professional. Helpful with directing a us driver in NZ.
Denise and Graham Jensen/Marshall
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.
regards Denise and Graham
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.
Best car rental company I have dealt with anywhere in the world. No hesitation in recommending to potential customers.
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.
We have rented cars from Anzed rentals a number of times and are happy to say that Teddy provides the best service we have ever received from a car hire company. The cars are always well maintained and spotlessly clean. The extra little details, such as the supply of a sim card for which we only pay for the cost of the calls made, folding chairs, esky etc, make our travels more comfortable and convenient. Teddy is really helpful and always goes the extra mile to help. We are happy to recommend Anzed Rentals to any one planning a trip to NZ.
Wei Lin Soh
Rented a Nissan sedan from Anzed Rentals for our 10 days roadtrip in South Island. Teddy was really helpful, providing several tips on navigating the roads in New Zealand and brochures with recommendations on places to go. Car was of good condition - had no troubles even in the mountain ranges and clean.
Much thanks also to him picking us up on time, in the early morning of New Year. Would definitely recommend getting a car from Anzed Rentals to anyone heading to NZ.
My wife and I rented two Subaru Outbacks from Teddy during our 3 month stay in New Zealand. We found Teddy a pleasure to deal with, he was friendly, helpful and always responded straight away to the many questions we asked him.
Both cars were very reliable, clean inside and out and never gave us any trouble. Teddy even offered us the use of a cool box, flask, cups and folding chairs.
I would recommend anyone looking to hire a vehicle in Christchurch to give Anzed Rentals a call. Next time I need to hire in Christchurch I would not hesitate to call him.
Well done Teddy, it's a 10 from me.
Mohan Raj Gupta
We just rented a Hyundai IMAX from Teddy at ANZED rentals. It was a great experience. I was pleasantly surprised with the good condition of this vehicle and the overall fleet of cars I saw at his office. Teddy takes personal interest to try and make the customer's trip memorable. He offered us free local mobile phone, chiller, rice cooker and all the advice about the nuances of NZ driving. They don't have a counter at the airport but that is least bothersome as he picks up within minutes of giving him a call. The rentals are much cheaper that other companies and the car did not give us any trouble in our trip of 2100 KM. When we go back again we are sure to rent only from him.
I wish to begin by affirming and confirming the recent experience of reviewer Bryan Wong of Malaysia. His review is an elaborate and accurate depiction of my own experience with Anzed Rentals. I too was a first-time traveler to New Zealand, choosing South Island and Anzed Rentals for the experience, after much investigation online. I can confirm that Teddy is consistently attentive, thoughtful and thorough, offering wise counsel about road condtions, helpful resources for orientation to New Zealand's driving practices, in addition to offering useful amenities such as Garmin Navigator, chill box and wall outlet adapter plug. I found Teddy to be responsive and thorough regarding email queries prior to the rental, and equally congenial and thorough in person. The Subaru 4wd wagon performed trouble-free throughout the 23 days of the 3500 km tour. Thanks, Teddy, for for contributing to a memorable tour of stunning South Island.

I did alot of research for car rentals in NZ in the South island and comparing the rating for many companies. Anzed came out top and I could understand why. With such good reviews, I did not hesitate to choose Anzed as my preferred choice and I have no regrets. Teddy would pick you up from the airport and then proceed to his company (5 mins drive) for a short orientation of the car and the various safety tips. He would also provide maps and suggestions as to where to go along the trip. At the end of the trip, we dropped off the car at his company and he sent us to the airport even though it was past working hours. I have no reservation in getting from Anzed rentals again. Simply friendly and helpful service from Teddy.
We checked around for car rentals for us to go around the South Island and we stumbled upon Anzed Rentals.
With a great variety of vehicle fleet at affordable price and good reviews, we know we cannot miss this opportunity. As we encountered Teddy, we understood what those great reviews meant.
Teddy provided us with a mobile phone and even offered a chiller box for us, knowing we would need them beforehand. He shared with us on how New Zealand is by giving us an overview of how things are, knowing that we are first-time travellers to New Zealand. He offered to pick us up from the airport to collect the car rental and even sent us to the airport as well after we have sent it back.
Not to mention, the car he provided us, clock a good 3,500 km around the South Island and is still running perfectly fine.
If you are really looking for a good car rental experience and car rental, look no further.
Thanks Teddy, we enjoyed our trip in New Zealand a lot and your service experience made it more pleasant too.
car very good condition everything worked as it should picked up at airport with all are gear and droped off at motel after rental excelent service
Drove a Nissan Latio, it was clean and looked new. Teddy went through with us the things to look out for driving in NZ. Cooler box provided was very useful. Overall a very pleasant experience with ANZED rental.
My wife came upon Anzed rentals after a bit of research, and based on reviews, location, competitive pricing and extras provided, we chose Teddy's company for our 23 day exploration of the South Island. Our little sedan was ideal for our trip; it was easy to drive and got great fuel economy. Teddy provided a cooler, folding chairs, and a phone for local use, as well as rented us a mobile wifi device which we found invaluable for booking lodging, checking weather, and keeping track of road conditions. And the shuttle pick up and drop off at the airport was wonderfully convenient. We highly recommend Teddy's company for great value, service and attention to detail.
Teddy was responsive from the initial enquiry. He recommended that a larger car for better comfort and performance on mountain roads and we are glad that we took his recommendation. The car performed well throughout our 14 day trip and we are grateful for this. In addition, Teddy supplied us with information and tips on driving in NZ which came in useful. The cooler box which he lent us came in handy as well. Would definitely use Anzed if we are to revisit NZ!
Teddy is responsive to our request. Recommend us quite a few "must go" places and we went and enjoy very much. Particulaly the "huge" playground in christchurch and luge in queenstown. The car is running well throughout our holiday period in south island. Given us alot of safety advise as this is our first trip driving in NZ. Recommend car rental & definitely will re-visit this car rental company.
Teddy was a champion. I changed my mind on the type of car I wanted (small to a Subaru Outback) after I had poicked it up and he hooked it up no problems. Threw in a complimentary esky, thermos and chairs too. Car was clean, ran great, and drove around the south island with no troubles at all. And a good price, too.
Our first trip to N.Z. so a lot of researching was undertaken. Found Anzed Rentals, their prices are very good, also no mileage limit, and also meet at airport and return to airport at end of holiday. I had the odd question and Teddy replied very quickly. On meeting Teddy he was very informative with respect to, the hire vehicle, driving in N.Z., also offering maps etc. All carried out in a very friendly manner. We would not have any hesitation in highly recommending Anzed Rentals. Many thanks to Teddy.

What an amazing rental! I am a frequent traveler and My family have rented cars in many other countries during our holiday. Our rental from Anzed Rentals in April this year is the very best ever. The South Island of New Zealand is an amazing place to have a family holiday.
And that wonderful experience was made even better with the great service of Anzed. The good people at Anzed really cared that we have the best holiday we can get. They went through our itinerary and suggested places to visit and things we should not miss. They also gave us a thorough briefing on how to drive there as the roads are more mountainous than we had experienced in other parts of the world.
They even provided items like mobile phones, cooler boxes, thermos flasks and ice scrapers for clearing the ice on the windscreens and windows on cold mornings. The pocket WIFI of theirs was a godsend to our adult “kids” enabling them to post updates on their blogs even at remote places and keeping their very devoted and slightly anxious grandparents at home updated every day .
The six of us were very comfortable in the MPV we rented. It was not brand new but was immaculately clean and tidy and our holiday went like a wonderful dream.
From my experience, Anzed Rentals is the best I have ever experienced.
We rented a Subaru outback AWD from Teddy, the car was in excellent condition, Teddy was very welcoming, he went to pick me up at the airport and gave me a lift back to the airport at the end of my trip, he provided us all the informations we needed, plus free maps and really took the time to explain everything, even how to put chains on a car (I'm so glad we rented chains too, we had to use them so often).
Really great customer service and cheaper prices compared to big companies, I definitely recommend it!
We rented a car From Teddy at Anzed. It was a great experience in every way. Teddy picked us up at the airport and took a very long time chatting with us about our plans, making sure we knew the rules of the road, and explaining everything on the car. Teddy had traveled in the USA enough to anticipate what we needed to know. We rented a Vodaphone mobile WiFi and it was very handy. Teddy also included a cooler and thermos that we used every day. The rates are a real bargain compared to the big name companies.
Lots of thanks to Teddy for his wonderful service. We have visited NZ South Island three times and we would rent vehicles from Anzed Rentals without thinking twice. Teddy never fail to give practical advice of traffic rules and good suggestions to places of interest during our visits. He also well equipped us with reliable vehicles (from saloon cars to MPV), updated GPS, portable wifi, snow chains, frost scrappers with complimentary cooler box and rice cooker.
We are looking forward to see you soon in our next visit, Teddy! Cheers!
We highly recommend Teddy from Anzed rentals without hesitation. We hired an IMAX van to travel around the South Island with 6 adults and luggage for two weeks. The van exceeded our expectations for storage and comfort. Teddy was absolutely fantastic to deal with throughout - a genuinely lovely person.
Last year I had to book a 3 week driving trip around the South Island. We did our best to research hire companies and chose Anzed from online recommendations. They gave us the best service, car, and extras for no extra cost.
Extras were an esky, a thermos, mobile phone with some basic credit. These were simple items that made a huge difference to our journey.
I recently contacted them to see if we could find a good hirer in Dunedin, so we hope that we can for our next trip this year.
Thanks again for your great customer service and attention to detail
We rented the Subaru AWD from Teddy for the first 2 weeks of May. Upon arriving on the first day, Teddy drove us from the Airport to his rental place which is nearby and briefed us very extensively on road usage and driving in New Zealand. He also was very kind enough to go through on our route and provided additional information on the road conditions and attractions that are around those areas. As mentioned in previous reviews, he can provide a cooler box (very important if you are cooking meals yourself!), insulated flask, etc. The car itself was well maintained and the windscreens as proudly stated by Teddy, are treated with RainX to improve rain visibility conditions. I use it on my own car so i know how useful that is. It was my first time driving an AWD, and it really shines on gravel, dirt roads and unpredictable weather, so if you want a more stable drive, AWD cars are recommended.
Teddy provided the best rental experience i have so far encountered and that is in comparison to Europe and Japan rentals. Will go back to Anzed Rentals in future.
We would very readily recommend Anzed Rentals. Our Nissan was sturdy, reliable, and performed admirably during our two week rental period. This was over gravel roads as well, mind you. Teddy was very friendly and helpful - as mentioned on the website and also corroborated by the reviews on this page, Teddy loaded us with free maps, a cooler box, thermos flask, and foldable chairs. He patiently explained the traffic rules, things to watch out for, and even passed us a card to get discounts for petrol at select outlets. Teddy was also readily contactable throughout the trip.
All in all, we had such a wonderful experience with Anzed Rentals and with Teddy's impeccable service that we would not hesitate a split second to go back to Anzed for our next trip in South Island!
I definitely recommend Anzed rentals! Amazing service at a very fair price. Teddy is also very friendly, helpful and provides you with all the accessories you need for your trip.
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.
It was an absolutely delightful experience renting a car from Anzed Rentals. It was our first time to South Island and Teddy was extremely helpful in providing suggestions regarding our holiday itinerary. Also, the car we rented was in tip-top condition and gave us no problems at all. We'll not hesitate to engage Teddy's services again the next time we are in Christchurch!
We hired a Subaru Outback, the car was very clean inside and out and was in perfect running order and not very old. We had no problems with the vehicle during the hire. Teddy and Tammy could not have been more helpful, especially when booking the car over the internet and when we picked it up and returned it, which is very important when traveling in a foreign country. Teddy had plenty of maps, CD's to borrow at no extra cost, and other goodies like foldable chairs if required. They are based very close to the airport which was helpful, they were prepared to pick us up and drop us off back at the airport. I would definitely use them again, their customer service was outstanding.
I chose Anzed because I had a first class experience with them on a previous trip. Thank you Teddy for another first class experience!
As a retuning customer I received a discount and, surprisingly, an upgrade as well as a free phone, cool box, maps and guides, as well as 2 car keys!
Thank you for your excellent communication skills in replying to emails. I can highly recommend this well run, friendly company that provides excellent service.
The car was superbly comfortable and drove well.
I started using Anzed Rentals when I first visited New Zealand with my husband about 12 years ago and have continued to use them ever since (my family live in Christchurch).
We have recommended them to our friends and they have always provided an excellent, helpful and friendly service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
This year I rented a car for the first time since my husband died and I was a bit nervous about it but Teddy couldn't have been more kind or helpful. I had a lovely little Nissan car which was just what I needed and I must say driving in Christchurch was a pleasure compared to England.
This is an excellent small family run company.
The company to go to when renting out of Christchurch. Clean reliable cars. Excellent service with airport p/u drop/off.
We booked from the Netherlands and Teddy gave us a lot of good information. We were very happy with the extreme good service and happy with all the extra stuff Teddy provided us for free.
The car was also satisfyingly good and we can surely recommend Anzed Cars to everybody who likes good service and a reasonable price.
This car rental tributes to good memories of our 6 weeks on the South Island.
Thank you very much, Tammy and Teddy.
Teddy was very helpful and accommodating. He replies promptly to emails and is always very polite. Nothing seemed to be an issue. We appreciated all of the maps, kid seats, cushions, window shades, lumbar support and esky bag free of charge. The car was well priced and in good condition. We temporarily lost our keys and Teddy was very kind and drove 45 minutes to give us a spare set. Highly recommended! Will definitely use next time we are back in Christchurch. Thanks
We rented a car at Anzed for a 4-month period and it was a great pleasure to meet Teddy, he is such a lovely person! It is so rare to meet people for whom the most important thing in business is the service and not making money! The price he proposed us for this long period rent was so cheap compared to other companies, and, most important, the service was just perfect! Teddy was always ready to serve us, as for instance driving me back home after I had returned the car instead of letting me take a taxi! I recommend unhesitatingly Anzed to anyone needing a car in Christchurch!!!
Teddy was a pleasure to deal with. Quick responses, best price and a lovely car. Lots of extras offered to make your visit to New Zealand easy.
Car was well maintained and pick up drop off very smooth with lots of options.
Highly recommend, don't pay more for the well know car rentals.
Teddy is honest, reliable, and a real gentleman.
Teddy was very helpful and changing the length and equipment of the rental was no drama. He replies quick to emails so correspondence isn't a drama. Cheers Teddy. See you next year.
I really recommend Anzed Rentals. It was our first time renting a car abroad. Teddy supported us so kindly and we enjoyed everything in South Island. He also rented us a rice cooker, a cooler box with ice, a mobile phone for free. I would like to rent a car here again if I visit Christchurch some day. 本当に親切なレンタカー会社です。有料ですがpocket WIFI も借りることができます。日本で借りていくより断然安上がりです。
Outstanding car rental! Probably the best I've ever used. Teddy is super easy going, and a generally wonderful human being. Prices are very fair, and he gave us a lot of goodies (foldable chairs, a cooler, etc.). The car itself was very clean, well maintained and was very well adapted to NZ roads and driving behavior. We could not be any happier, and we will surely rent again from him when in the area.
We have rented cars on Two separate occasions from Anzed rentals, a year apart, and both occasions have surpassed our expectations. After leaving the UK Teddy was one of the first people we met in our new home of NZ and he could not have done more to make us feel welcome, he should be a NZ Ambassador. On both hire occasions we needed to change the dates of our bookings and Teddy could not have been more accommodating and flexible, particularly with return times and pick up/drop off arrangements.
The best car rental company in all of NZ! The whole process of renting with Anzed and Teddy was so painless and easy. He picked us up from the airport and had us on our way with more than enough maps, travel guides, camping chairs, a chilly bin, and even a cell phone, within no time! He also recommended a few places to us on our route that we otherwise wouldn't have visited. The car obviously had no issues at all and was in tidy condition. All in all, unbelievable value for the quality of product and service you are getting. We will absolutely be coming back to Anzed for any of our car rental needs in the future!
You couldn't ask for more in a hire car company. Teddy thinks of everything and it's his personal touch which makes the whole experience that much more enjoyable. He picked us up from the airport, shared all sorts of useful information and was even generous enough to send us away with some small chilly bins and camping chairs. Absolutely brilliant!
Can't fault this rental company at all. Just back from a month long holiday. Teddy picked us up at the airport and took us back again once we returned the car. The car was spotless and totally reliable. I would definitely recommend this rental company.
We booked at last minute at peak season when all the major operators were 'sold out' - and we were glad we did. We have hired cars frequently over the last 8 years and found renting through ANZED Rentals a uniquely human, efficient and helpful experience. The service could not have been better.
Rented a 2.4L Toyota Camry from ANZED at Christchurch following my brother's recommendation. As per the picture on their webpage, we were not expecting the latest model. And we were glad it turned out the car was very clean and in good running condition as per my brother's experience. Powerful car to help conquer more than 3,600km of hilly road in our trip in the South Island. And Teddy is the man to look for when planning a road trip in NZ. Booking was a breeze via their webpage/subsequent emails. And he picked us up personally for car collection and give us the local tips on places to go. Unlike the big players at the airport, we had the best personal service from Teddy from booking to returning the car. And depending on your luck, he may have some additional gadgets in his garage (rice cookers, vacuum flasks, cold box, CDs) left from previous people who rented from him and decided to pass on to other travellers, and so no cost to him and to you! Will definitely rent from ANZED again for my next trip.
Teddy picked us up from the airport and brought us to his office where he gave us plenty of information which proved to be very helpful for our trip.
The car was in great condition and was very new. It performed very well and we did not encounter any problems whatsoever.
At the end of the trip, our flights were due to depart in the wee hours of the morning so we arranged to leave the car at an airport hotel and ANZED picked up the car from there.
Overall, our experience with ANZED was excellent. Cheers!
Teddy was the first and last person I talked with in New Zealand, and I couldn't be happier with him and Anzed as my trip bookends. I drove the car around the South Island for a month without incident, and the supplemental things that he offered (wifi hot spot, phone, cooler, camp chair) made a big difference for me during the trip.
Before confirming our car rentals, we had many questions as this was our first time driving in NZ. Teddy was very prompt and forthcoming in addressing our concerns. He is very detailed and gave us tips and information readily.
Teddy did a very detailed briefing for all of us at the office before we embarked on our journey. He even provided us with useful maps and brochures. We also like the fact that he loaned us the mobile wifi, handphone and ice box. These were indeed useful items during our trip.
Overall we had a wonderful experience in NZ, thanks to Teddy who gave us information and tips readily. I would recommend to use Anzed Rentals to all our friends. Thank you.
We are a small family doing our first tour around the South Island. We chose Anzed after reading all the positive reviews which, thereafter, we had no doubt why. The services we received from Teddy were ways beyond expectations and unmatched by any of those big names. We could feel the difference right from the very first email inquiry. Teddy was always very prompt in his responses, thought in our shoes and gave clear and honest advice regarding the services that were relevant to our needs. On arrival, though quite late after the working hours, we were picked up in no time. The car was in tip top conditions with maps, cooler box, gadgets, etc all ready to go. We were given travel tips, route advice, important road rules, places of interest and many other things we didn't even think about. We were looked after like a friend/family. We can't rate you high enough. Thank you very much for making our trip so joyful and carefree.
From the first email to Teddy almost a year ago to shaking hands as he dropped us off at the airport, our experience with Anzed has been nigh on perfect. Teddy's communication right through the process, his obvious care for providing everything his customers need for their journeys and his personal approach (our kids talked about his a lot!) couldn't have been any more on the money, and they all helped make our hiring experience as easy as it could have been. The car did its job without fuss over 2.500km+ of South Island roads and we couldn't recommend Anzed highly enough - thank you!
Very good prices, and excellent service.
This is my 2nd rental from Teddy. He gave us very good tips and recommended places to visit for our stay in the South Island. The car was in tip-top condition, even much better than those from big name rental companies. 2 thumbs up!!
We rented an automobile from Teddy at Anzed Rentals some years ago and were extremely satisfied. So, on our most recent trip to New Zealand this November, we looked forward to seeing Teddy and using Anzed again. Teddy picked us up at the airport, and very thoroughly explained all the rules of the road to us. We were very happy with the car and the rates. We would definitely contact Teddy again on our next trip to our favorite destination, New Zealand.
I used Anzed Rentals based on the recommendation of a friend who had used them previously and we rented a car during November 2015. We had to have a car with a boot that would accommodate four suitcases and Teddy found one that suited our needs. In addition to the car, we got a mobile phone (chargeable for usage only), maps etc. Teddy was very efficient. He operates out of Christchurch. Though my car was not brand new, it was immaculate and well maintained. His rates are also very reasonable.
We love Anzed Rentals... Even though the car is not brand new, it is well maintained. The owner, Teddy, took his time to explain to us the NZ driving rules and gave some local tips on our destinations.
He lent us mobile phones, cooler box, thermos and CDs..
Thank you Teddy and Anzed Rentals for your first class service.
-Tommy & Vera-
Car was well maintained and value for money. Will rent from Teddy if I ever visit the south island again.
We discovered Anzed Rentals through Rankers while planning a short holiday (one week) in the South Island following a business trip to Christchurch.
For the first time we decided to rent from a local company instead of a big international one. I am happy to write this was a great choice.
The Nissan Bluebird 1.8 we got was perfectly clean and maintained, with tires in excellent condition. Teddy picked us up at the motel and dropped us at the airport.
We were given a local mobile phone that made us save some money, a very useful cooling bag and two camping chairs, along with maps and plenty of very useful information including a review of NZ driving rules. Excellent value for money and customer care. We would not hesitate to rent from Anzed again and we highly recommend Anzed to the Rankers community.
We recently hired a car from Teddy for 16 nights and could not have been happier with the experience. The car was in excellent condition, clean and comfortable. Teddy was prompt in responding to our emails from our initial enquiry through to booking the car and any follow ups. Teddy is extremely friendly and has thought of everything to make hiring one of his vehicles a pleasurable experience! The car came with a thermos, cups and eski (chilly bin) and we were also had access to a mobile phone. Thank you Teddy for your professionalism and allowing us to travel around the South Island in comfort at a reasonable cost. We would highly recommend Anzed Rentals.
We are just back in Australia from a 16 day holiday in New Zealand and just had to post our appreciation and praise of Anzed car rentals. We were so impressed with the service, car, organisation and outstanding customer service we received - unlike any hire company we've ever dealt with in the past in New Zealand or Australia! The cars are not brand new but immaculate and extremely well serviced - Teddy is a perfectionist we felt!
Teddy spent uninterrupted time explaining the car and NZ road rules and also gave us maps, an esky, mobile phone with credit (!) and tips for various places to see or visit. The cost was better than competitive and we felt valued and cared for. Teddy is extremely likable and delivered on all areas - everyone should choose Anzed and we'll certainly be telling all our Australian friends that!
Phil and Jill Brodie
Thanks again Teddy for the amazing service. This is the second time we have used Anzed Rentals and it won't be the last! Teddy always gives friendly, honest and helpful service. Our vehicle was clean and comfy with plenty of room for 4 adults plus luggage. From our pickup at our Motel until Teddy dropped us at the airport we couldn't have been looked after any better! Good job Anzed Rentals.
Robert & Suzi Perisic
Thanks Anzed rentals ... Teddy for your exceptional service , providing us with a reliable and safe vehicle .
You also were a wealth of information, tips and extras you provided gps hire .. Sim and wi fi came in very useful
Anzed car rentals ... First class operators forget the rest
Cheers ... Rob & Suzi Perisic
I found ANZED rentals through Rankers. I'm always a bit cautious in hiring cars overseas as you do hear horror stories so I wanted to be sure that things would be great.. Teddy did not disappoint - from the moment I emailed, he was prompt in replying and gave every bit of helpful information he could (even down to where to call from for pick up from Christchurch Airport so it didn't cost us!). The car was great, we used wifi with no issues (well worth it as a few places we stayed had flakey wifi at best), also used the free phone which saved us a lot, and he taught us how to put on snow chains just in case, and included ice scrapers, clothes, everything. Would A+ recommend.
WOW. Clearly from all the rave reviews below, mine is just a dent to the whooping statistic. My husband and I are so glad we went with Teddy instead of Avis or one of the usual suspects. His email replies were really prompt (within a couple hours) and helpful right from the first email. The car and pricing were good. But what we liked most was Teddy's personal service - giving practical advice about the weather, road conditions, directions and travel time like a concerned parent would. He's thought of everything, even providing us CDs, rag cloths to wipe down the car plus a thermos bottle and cups! :)
Ian and I highly recommend you go with this guy - you won't regret it. Thanks Teddy.
Teddy gave the best service quality from our first email. Giving us inside info including a NZ drive guide website and also some pointers on our then upcoming trip. Pick up was quick as arranged. Much to our delight, we had an unexpected upgrade to a bigger car from the same People Mover Category due to unavailability of our booked vehicle. Teddy was thorough and answered all our questions accurately as this was our first time driving in a cold country. He event taught us how to use the snow chains, gave us scrapers for if we get frosted over, a mobile sim with nzd30 , a cooler box with ice packs for our road trip and numerous discount vouchers from travel guides. Unlike search results from other rentals; Teddy kept to his word on being reasonably priced (he offered unlimited kilometers which meant NO hidden costs) and the vehicle was in tip top condition, no hassles no complaints. From the moment we met, It was so clear to us why Anzed was voted best in their category of business. All 6 of us in our travel party were thoroughly satisfied with Anzed. Cheers Teddy.
Anzed Rentals is the place to rent a car each time we come to Christchurch for a holiday. Teddy provides good service and always gives good advice and helps us in any way he can to make our trip a memorable one. He makes sure we get everything we need before the start of our trip. A very friendly and warm person. We will definitely be back to rent from Anzed Rentals again!
We had a great trip that was made possible because of trustworthy services and a reliable car that brought us around the south island.
Definitely would be back again soon to look for Teddy!
God bless you and your family,
Creston and Clara
Great service! A very good deal with cost and awesome customer care. The car was great too.
Was recommended to Mr Teddy from a friend whom had their rental during their tour in 2012.
Mr Teddy provided great service and even provided advise prior to our arrival. The vehicle rented (Nissan Xtrail 4WD) was excellent and we had a wonderful road trip!
Will be back to Christchurch again and first stop will be to Teddy!
Mr Teddy has been our first go-to car rental service guy ever since we traveled to Christchurch back in 2011/2012. Now three years later and still, his service is truly warm, impeccably hospitable and the most cheerful person ever! He will look after all our details and ensure safety by going through the road signs with us. Overall, our safe road-trip back is definitely owed to the quality servicing of the car and his advice! Thank you Mr Teddy and we will definitely come back to you again!
Teddy was extremely friendly and informative before we even arrived for our trip. It's our first time being on a long road trip of 3 weeks, and Teddy provided us with everything we need - including the must-dos and must-sees in different cities in the South Island!
Our first time using Anzed Rental, and definitely not the last!
Have been using Anzed Rentals for years. Teddy is the best, no question. His cars are always immaculate and totally reliable. The hiring process is simple and straight forward, and Teddy makes sure you have all the gear you need(maps, chains etc). His personal service is second to none.
To top it all off his prices are VERY reasonable. You cannot do better.
Best experience ever!!!!!!! The onsite reviews said it all but beyond for us as the attentiveness touched and awed our 3 boys! Thank you Teddy for making our holiday a home feel :)

Awesome experience. Price was great with no hidden costs. Replies from Teddy was prompt and when we were there, he took his time to explain some rules of driving in NZ and also recommended places to visit. He threw in free usage of hot flask and cups, even rice cooker if you are interested. The car was well maintained and clean. Definitely highly recommended for rental in Christchurch.
Awesome service from Teddy! The entire trip would not have been possible without the smooth ride. The car was in tip top condition and no problem navigating around with the GPS that is rented to us at a very reasonable price. Teddy demonstrated how to use the snow chains as well as changing of gear when going downhill to make sure that we will be able to drive safely. Furthermore, Teddy provided us with thermo flask, ice cooler and maps at no charge which provided more comfort for our road trip. Cheers to Teddy and ANZED rental! Highly recommended!
Great service from Teddy! Even before we met, Teddy emailed us with the link to read up on the traffic rules in NZ as well as telling us the things we will need for the trip (GPS, snow chain etc.) The car that he recommended was good and easy to drive! He was indeed very helpful and patient when we got there, picking us up from the airport and dropping us off as well!
Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend everyone to choose Anzed Rental!
We are experienced senior travellers who have become dissatisfied with the big car hire companies, especially the hidden charges you always find you have to pay at the last moment. When we found ANZED on the internet we were curious about how good they would be. Well we were delighted. Our initial email was replied to promptly and efficiently. I rang and spoke to Teddy and was impressed by the service offered. He had just the car we wanted, a Nissan X-trail and that was what we actually got, unlike other companies when you are not guaranteed to get the car pictured only a similar one. On arrival, we phoned as arranged and he promptly picked us up, Not only did we get a clean, well maintained car in perfect condition with new tyres but, at a very reasonable price, a GPS, a mobile phone with $30 credit and for free an esky with ice bricks, a choice of CDs, maps and access to AA assistance for mechanical problems, which was not required as the car ran like a clock. Before we left, Teddy gave us a thorough familiarisation of the vehicle, showing us how to use the gears on the steep winding roads and instructing us what to do in case of snow. We were extremely grateful for this knowledge and put it into good use. Our trip was trouble free in the very comfortable car and it was nice not to look like a hire car as it had no labels and blended in with the locals. On return at the arranged time, Teddy was waiting for us. There were no surprises or extra charges like we had experienced with other hire companies. Teddy very kindly drove us back to our accommodation, thus saving us a taxi fare.
We would certainly have no hesitation hiring another car from Teddy or recommending him to others. He made our six weeks trip around the South Island a most pleasant and trouble free motoring experience.
This is the second time we rent a car from teddy. Teddy is the first person in our mind when renting a car in South island for our second NZ holiday.
As always teddy is v friendly and helpful. Giving suggestion on our itinerary. The Car we rent is in tip top condition. That's the last thing you want to worry about when traveling. (way better than those big rental companys which is just out to earn your money only) Safety is most impt.
Price is v reasonable and service is top notch.
Will not hesitate to find teddy for our next NZ trip.
Hope to see you soon.
And thanks for everything.
This was first experience of car rental for us and at the same time also our first trip to NZ and Teddy definitely made us feel welcomed! We got very friendly and professional service. Everything went fluently and we could enjoy our trip without having to trouble our minds with car problems. Definitely will use Anzed Rentals again and recommend it warmly to everyone else as well! :)
I couldn't agree more with the other reviews. Great car, personalized service and other perks (phone, GPS) at an affordable price. I would definitely recommend ANZED.
Wow. I don't know where to begin! From the very beginning, Teddy was incredibly helpful and courteous. I had a few questions to start with which he answered fully and promptly, and had the same consistently helpful approach as the rental date approached and throughout the duration of the rental. As a single woman travelling alone and having never been to New Zealand before I had some slight concerns about car rental, but it was absolutely the best way for me to get where I wanted to go, and Teddy was reassuring and helpfully pointed out best places for petrol, driving tips and discussed my overall itinerary with me and offered advice about that. I left his office feeling relaxed and excited about my trip.
Anzed is a rare breed company, who I cannot speak highly enough of. Teddy and his wife were so incredibly helpful with maps, brochures, hints and tips and even dropping me off at my accommodation at the end of the rental, which was so lovely.
Somehow, they manage to provide the most amazing customer service and reliable cars at incredibly competitive prices, whilst the whole time deftly balancing immense professionalism with genuine friendliness and interest in customer care. You just don't (often) get that from 'the big guys'. I would rent from them again in a heartbeat and have been recommending them to everyone I've spoken to about my NZ trip.
I wish them all the very best for the future and hope they continue to enjoy well deserved success with their business - but in the nicest way possible, I hope they never become like 'the big guys'!
Rented two cars from Anzed. A small car initailly for a week for two people and then a larger car for two weeks for 4 people. Teddy at Anzed was very helpful, both in the initial booking. but also when we picked up both cars and also when we returned then. The cars were excellent. He couldn't have been more helpful including giving us cool boxes, maps, mugs and a mobile phone. He spent time with us going through the details of the cars and also about driving in New Zealand. Have rented from lots of the bigger companies before, but the personal service from Anzed was excellent.
Having just returned to the UK after a two month road trip around the South Island, we cannot praise the service provided by Teddy at Anzed Rentals highly enough. From the initial email correspondence, to being dropped off at the airport at the end of our holiday, the service he provided was second to none. The car was immaculate - reliable, spacious, and perfect for our needs - but it was the little extras that made life so much easier than it might otherwise have been (road maps, town maps, a coolbox, thermos flask and cups, collapsible picnic chairs, a NZ mobile etc.). If only all car rental companies be like this one. Thanks, Teddy, we shall be back....
Prompt and personal service when booking online from abroad, helpful and friendly when we arrived. Excellent extras and a great vehicle at a competitive price. What more could we want?
We cannot recommend Anzed Rentals highly enough. We drove their car for 3 weeks and had no problems the entire time driving all over the South Island. Teddy thoroughly reviews all aspects of the car with you ahead of time, and passes on helpful tips for driving in NZ. The water shield on the windshield was especially helpful on the rainy west coast, and the cell phone we rented from him worked well everywhere we needed it. Anzed gives super service!
This was the second time rental. Good value for money. All transfers and pick up went smoothly. Supply of phone and extras a bonus. Had no problems with the car. Would recommend to all.
We can't thank Teddy at Anzed Rentals enough for providing a rental car that totally met our needs. He provided exceptional personal attention in terms of additional amenities like an ice chest, thermos, travel books and maps that you'd never get from another car rental company. Teddy also took time to make sure we were comfortable driving in New Zealand by reviewing traffic signs and rules of the road with us. This ensured we had a safe and accident free trip. When we come back to visit the South Island, Teddy and Anzed Rental will definitely be our goto car rental agency.
Teddy at ANZED Rental gave us the best car rental experience we've ever had! From our first e-mail contact with him he was prompt and thorough in his replies. He provides extras that make a holiday much easier when you're in another country (phones, esky, thermos, mugs, hotel pick-up/drop-off) and gives exceptional personal service. The car was in great shape and ran well, no problems at all. The rain shield he applies was great on the rainy west coast. No hassles, no hidden charges, just service, service, service. Thank you! If only there were a Teddy in every rental market! Richard and Sue
My wife and I were first time visitors to New Zealand and were given Anzed rental car's name as a good company to go with by an acquaintance. We found their rates to be below the standard larger companies. I was given Teddy's name as the person to deal with. He was always very thorough and quick with his responses to my emails. We opted for a slightly older car to rent which came at a lower rate. Teddy came through with everything he had promised. When we first met at his office he went through all the basic New Zealand driving rules with us, offered us a free chilly bin (cooler) and loaned us a mobile phone for the whole 2 weeks. There were also lots of maps and brochures (with discount coupons for many sites) available for the taking. Rather than to be just another person in line at a rental car counter I found Teddy's sit-down-at-the-table personalized service to be very refreshing and helpful. Wish we had an option for this kind of personalized service in the States.
Our first trip to New Zealand was made easier & had good memories because of Anzed Car Rentals. Reliable car, GPS & wifi. He put RainX which repels rainwater at no extra charge. Extremely helpful during rainy days. Teddy also lent us a chilly bean (cooler), cups, thermal bottle & foldable picnic chairs - all perfect for a New Zealand road trip. He also upgraded our gps device for free & lent us a phone & sim for free(we just had to pay for actual usage - ie any deductions from the prepaid load). When we had a question we sent via email while on the road, he was quick to respond. Teddy also gave us tips on where to go, gave free discount vouchers & very importantly, gave us a very thorough briefing on new zealand driving. Wife was nervous since it was our first time to drive on the other side of the road, but his clear instructions helped a lot. We had no problem at all.
We will definitely use Anzed if we go back & recommend to family & friends. We hope Teddy will get more customers, continue his good business practices, be blessed & be a blessing to many.
This was our first visit to New Zealand and we selected ANZED Rentals based on the reviews on the Rankers Site. Teddy was very attentive to our needs, provided a great car as well as extras including free use of chairs, a cooler, and thermos with the rental as well as loaning a cell phone for which we only payed for the minutes we used. This was the best car rental experience we have ever had. Teddy is very focused on his customers and provides a personal touch that bigger rental firms simply cannot. We will be returning to New Zealand and will again use ANZED.
I used these reviews to try Anzed Rentals and i must say everyitng was just as described by other reviewers! Outstanding and friendly service from owner Teddy, Great rates and many free extras and a very nice car!! What more could you ask for?!! Would defintiely rent from Teddy and Anzed again!
Highly recommended! Reliable and clean vehicles. Personable and friendly on the phone and in person. Will use Anzed on my next visit to NZ.
Fantastic service from Teddy at a very good price. We were picked up at the airport within minutes, given an intro to our car, and provided with a mass of extras to make our tour of South Island that bit better, including an esky, iceblocks, cups, flasks, mobile phone and network device. The car was a faultless companion throughout our trip. We couldn't be happier with the service we received and highly recommend this company.
We have used Anzed Rentals several times now, and always find them easy to deal with - great service including the airport pick up and drop off, cars well serviced and maintained. Congratulations Teddy - you deserve the awards you have received! See you next time we are in Christchurch!
Our car hire experience with ANZED was top class from start to finish, Teddy pick us up from our motel at the start and dropped us at the airport at the end.
The portable wifi service was most useful as wifi can be difficult in certain parts of NZ.
Extras offered at no extra charge Cds, picnic chairs ect, a much better personal service that you rarely get from multi national company's
I would recommended ANZED car hire to anyone considering car rental in the Christchurch area.
Rented one of Teddy's cars for two weeks in late January. It was the best rental car service I have ever experienced. Teddy met us at the Airport, provided an esky and phone with the car at no extra charge, then dropped us at the Airport on our return. The car was clean ,in very good condition and at the best price we could find on the internet.
Been hiring from Teddy for years now, just gets better and better, affordable cars and amazing personalised service.
Couldn't recommend Teddy and Anzed Rentals more highly, see you again next year Teddy and thanks again.
From first enquiry to handing the keys back everything was perfect. Teddy went the extra mile to provide cool box with ice blocks, thermos, directors chairs, CDs and all the maps you could need. He also made available a local mobile phone and satnav. The car was clean and there were no mechanical problems even though we drove more than 4000kms over 5 weeks during Dec and Jan. I cannot recommend this company too highly and will use them again next time we are in NZ .
I trusted Anzed's ranking and reviews on here and I was right to do so.
Teddy's providing all you need and more to enjoy a safe trip.
Everything has already been said, praises are well deserved.
Great service through and through.
Thanks a million Teddy; we'll definitely come back!
Picked up from the airport, usual paperwork but then so different! Teddy asked us where we were going, produced free maps for everywhere - fully explained the NZ road rules we would need to know - explained how the car worked and answered all questions with knowledge ...and a smile. To cap it all, he got out of bed early to take us back to the airport. A 'Magic Moment' company who thinks 'an extra mile' is the norm.
I cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from Teddy at Anzed Rentals. Nothing was too much trouble - from picking us up from and delivering us back to the airport, supplying us with a phone with prepaid credit, an esky with cold bricks, thermos, maps and locality guides. The car was in immaculate condition and gave us no trouble.
This was our second rental from Teddy and we were amazed at his record keeping and memory of our previous visit some 8 years previously. His friendly and helpful attitude made the whole experience so easy and pleasant.
We recommend him to anyone needing a rental car from Christchurch - you won't find a better company to deal with.
We hired a budget sedan and were very happy with the car and even more so with the service: from Teddy's introduction to the specifics of driving in NZ to the provision of maps, a chilly bin and a NZ SIM card (all free of charge). All in all, this made the local logistics of our NZ very ease.
We hired the Subaru Lancaster and was defiantly happy with the car, from the first moment teddy picked us up from the motel to him dropping us off at the airport he was simply amazing. By far the best car rental company in NZ and will definitely be getting my business again when we return. The car was clean, comfortable, very well maintained and fuel efficient. Thanks teddy.
We have rented cars from Teddy on all of our New Zealand holidays and highly recommend ANZED rentals. Service has been great, Teddy has been very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The cars have been excellent and trouble free. Thanks Teddy and see you on our next trip!
For those used to the rip off nature of car hire companies in some European countries, ANZED car hire will come as a pleasant surprise. From our initial enquiry to our face to face meeting with Teddy we found him to be helpful, honest and very pleasant to deal with. The hire policy is made very clear and there are no hidden surprises that suddenly increase overall costs. The car was in very good condition and proved reliable without exception. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable and honest service. Thanks Teddy, Mel and Paul.

Like many, we had a fantastic experience with Teddy & Co. this past December (: What they do, they do very well; the rental car was in tip top condition (with waxed windscreens to aid driving during inclement weather - a real useful tool when we navigated through Arthur's Pass), & the add-ons offered were, by & large, practical (we had access to a NZ mobile number which helped us with bookings at restaurants & apartments, & a mobile WIFI router for places where we didn't have wireless internet access - both at very reasonable prices)! Teddy & his wife were, too, highly helpful, friendly & accommodating; wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable, hassle-free car rental experience in Christchurch!
The Chens, December '14
A different hire car experience! Teddy and his team could not have been more helpful from start to finish. Whilst they are competitively priced, the real difference is their attention to detail and friendly service. I would not hesitate in recommending Anzed to a friend or family member.
Best car rental that I have ever experienced
Teddy and family provided a perfect car, plus phone, esky/cooler. GPS and thermos.
Add in maps and total advice on destinations and road rules.
Would return to N.Z, just to experience this service again.
Would give above 10/10 if possible
Extremely happy with Anzed rentals - Teddy, Tammy and Holly took great care of us and provided an excellent service. Would absolutely rent from them again and recommend to my friends. Car was in superb condition and very reasonably priced.
Being from the USA, we were rather nervous about using a non-brandname car rental agency for our 3 week NZ tour. However, based on the reviews we read, we decided to give Anzed a try. What a great decision that was! We opted for an economy car which turned out to be a very reliable, clean and well-serviced car. We were provided with every courtesy by the agency and had a wonderful experience (which I can honestly say we've NEVER had with a car rental agency). You can't go wrong with these folks. Do yourself a favor and use them.
We rented a Nissan Bluebird with a GPS unit for 20 days in Nov/Dec 2014. The car, while a slightly older model, was in excellent mechanical shape, it was spotless inside and out, and had plenty of room for our luggage. We e-mailed several questions to Teddy before we committed to the car and he answered them promptly and accurately. He picked us up at the airport within 10 minutes of our arrival, showed us the basics of the car, and supplied us with a modest pay-as-you-go cell phone, a cooler with ice packs, a coffee thermos for those long drives, access to emergency road services, and more maps and brochures than we were able to read during the three weeks, all at no cost. Best of all, he provided basic but comprehensive instructions on driving in New Zealand and phoned us partway through our trip to let us know that strict new anti-speeding laws were going into effect the next day. On our return, he offered to drive us to our motel even though he was obviously busy cleaning the cars that had been returned that day.
Previous experiences with so called “big name” car rental companies had left us disillusioned and cynical – not so with ANZED. The reviews you find here are an accurate description of how ANZED operates. Teddy is a genuinely warm person and wants you to have a positive experience visiting New Zealand.
Anzed is one of the best car rental company that I had engaged based on my experiences renting from different company all over the world. Teddy was patient and he spent effort to make your experience in NZ a wonderful one. I was one of those travelers who flew into NZ for our honeymoon and Teddy was so helpful that he helped me in getting a bouquet of flowers for my wife during our visit. The small perks and personal touch which Teddy provided (mobile wifi, advise, road conditions, maps, cooler box and etc) was nice. I have no hesitation of engaging Teddy again for our next visit to NZ. and yes, we will be back to NZ very soon..
Adios.. Michael from Malaysia
Anzed is an 'under-the-radar' smaller car rental operation. Teddy provides the most professional and personalized rental service that I have encountered anywhere in the world. I rented a Nissan Tilda as an economical option for a long trip. The car, though not a high performance vehicle, was very clean and performed admirably. Anzed's pricing was better than that of its larger competitors and Teddy was completely upfront about the charges. He hooked us up with economical and highly convenient mobile wifi as well as a local cell phone. When our vehicle received a minor ding as a result of the negligence of another driver we were able to call Teddy personally to ensure that we documented the incident appropriately. He did not charge us for the damage, something that a typical company surely would have done. I highly recommend Anzed and would not hesitate to use them again.

This is our second visit to NZ. We decided to use Anzed Rentals as we read a lot of good reviews of Teddy's services. Teddy went the extra mile and even provided good suggestions when we planned our itinerary.
We had a clean and well maintained car which served us well according to our budget. Before we started on our self drive, Teddy spent time explaining the NZ driving rules and regulations, and even gave us tips on what to do and avoid while driving.
We will definitely recommend his services to others and will surely use Anzed on our next visit.
Bill Dingli Australia. I'll have to give Teddy 10/10 as we hired a Honda Civic with good brakes and tyres that performed very economically. This was important for driving about 2500kms around the South island mountain hairpin bends and flat long roads. He lent us an esky to preserve our perishable breakfast foods, egg, hams etc. because few motels have B&B. Thanks Teddy.
We hired a Nissan Xtrail with Anzed Rentals for our 2 weeks self drive holiday of the South Island together with my partner and sister from Singapore. Teddy is great guy to deal with, extremely helpful and accommodating. Vehicle was clean and in excellent condition, economic to run and suited the 3 of us well with our multi bags of gears and shopping :-). Anzed supplied us an esky for the trip as well. We highly recommend Anzed Rentals for self drive holidays :-).
Teddy from Anzed Rental had been more than helpful even before we arrived in Christchurch. He was very patient with our endless queries and was more than helpful in helping us find the perfect car required for our road trip. Not to mention his various recommendations and reminders on driving safety in New Zealand when we picked up the vehicle, having known that we've never driven in mountainous area before, and what's great is he took the time to demonstrate putting on a snow chain since we're from sunny Singapore that has never seen a day of snow. What we're most grateful was the fact that he found my husband's camera lens filter under the car mat and took the trouble to email us and find another Singaporean to return it back safely to us. Now that's service at it's best! We will definitely look him up again when we find ourselves back in Christchurch, and we will.

A stellar service from Anzed Rentals! Teddy is the nicest person we've ever met - friendly, helpful, patient, kind etc. The car overall condition was perfect! I can wholeheartedly recommend this company and its owner. It was a very pleasant experience!
Anzed Rentals provided excellent service and customer care. Teddy really goes the extra mile and we must thank him for delivering us back to the airport early in the morning. The car was well maintained, clean and without fault. Nina / Derek, Singapore.
Teddy / Anzed Rentals is superb.... can't thanks him enough for the excellent services he had provided. We rented from Anzed a SUV for our recent self-drive vacation in South Island and Teddy helped us out with many insightful inputs and suggestions with our itineraries and trip planning. Thumbs up to Teddy / Anzed Rentals!
Cannot rave enough about Teddy and the service we received from ANZED Rentals. From the first email enquiry until the moment Teddy dropped us off at the airport (free service) we were blown away! Service, outstanding, cost, outstanding, car, outstanding - you get my point!! Will never use anyone else in New Zealand, just wish they were in every country we visit!! Thanks Teddy for everything, we'll sing your praises to anyone who's travelling over!!
Can't thank you enough Teddy for your kind professional help. The car was a dream and didnt give us one moment of trouble, your service was prompt polite and thoughtful. We will certainly be coming back to you on our next visit for our car hire needs. Kia Ora Teddy!
I have just rented a car from Teddy at ANZED Christchurch for the 5th time. As usual car was excellent, clean well maintained. Wouldn't use anybody else at Christchurch when I ski each year. Teddy turns up with the car in minutes after you call him (free) from the airport. This was the first year we had to use chains on the 4wd so his chain lessons really came in handy. I will continue to use ANZED, they do a fantastic job.
This has got to be the best car rental company we have ever used. Personal friendly service. Very comfortable clean vehicles. Really can not fault Teddy. Would recommend to anyone and we hope we can return one day and would be more than happy to use ANZED again.
I recently rented an 8 seater from Anzed. Teddy met us at the airport as promised. He was very friendly and helpful, providing us with maps, advice, child seats, everything we needed. The vehicle was very clean and in great condition. I could not fault the service provided by Teddy. I would definitely recommend Anzed rentals to anyone visiting New Zealand - Thanks Teddy!

When I want to rent a car for my holiday at CHC, I intend to use well known car rental that can be taken at the airport. My friend recommeded me Anzed as he ever rent a car and recommeded it and siad the service is excellent.
Well, he was definately right.Anzed provided me with an excellent condition car. I will give it 10/10. My self and the other drivers, my son and daughter can easily adapted to it. Thank to Teddy who had painstakingly and thoroughly explained and briefed us the car usage, road condition, NZ road rule/regulaltion and the snow chain. Teddy even let us used the NZ prepaid phone and the GPS was a very great help.
I really appreciated it and would not hesitate to recommended it to my friends/relatives.
I had a wonderful holiday and thank for the excellent and rewarding service.
Mohd Ismail Abdullah
It was a challenge choosing which company to rent our vehicle from and we are glad we chose Anzed Rentals.
Teddy was patient throughout the entire process from answering our queries, recommending the most suitable car (He did not just recommend the most expensive so that he could profit) and the 1.5L car we had served us perfectly and beautifully.
The car was clean, tidy and taken care just like it was his personal car even though it was not a brand new one. Teddy spent time giving us a briefing on the rules that were different in New Zealand and this really benefited us as there were road signs that we did not see before as well as demonstrating the installation of snow chains even though I would not have needed them. I have never experienced such service renting cars in other countries who would just take payment, pass me the keys and that is it.
Thumbs up to him and I will definitely recommend him to others as well as go back to Teddy when I return to New Zealand in the future!
Teddy provided excellent and hassle free service which made our NZ road trip more enjoyable.
I would highly recommend Anzed Rentals to any of my friends visiting Christchurch.
From my experience I'm not sure I fully trust the larger car rental firms so I thought we would try a smaller operator this time. This worked out extremely well. Teddy was a very nice man and looked after us very well and I felt completely comfortable. The car was great. Also, he has many extras to assist, so don't hesitate to ask. We used the phone which was very helpful.
One more 10/10 for Teddy and Anzed car rentals. We used Anzed because of the reviews and Teddy didn't disappoint. Great service, great guy, thanks again and all the best in your future endeavors
What a great company! The personal, friendly service from Teddy was terrific! Teddy was helped us plan our route and offered some great advice on attractions to see on our journey around the South Island. The car was clean, had new tires and handled our twenty two day rental without a problem. It was obvious the car was well maintained and in excellent condition. Thanks Anzed, New Zealand should be proud of a company like this one.
Teddy certainly lives up to his excellent reputation. He was extremely helpful through the planning stage of our trip and offered excellent advice re places to visit, itinerary etc. The car we hired was in extremely clean condition and a dream to drive. We could not of asked for a better experience. Teddy is to be commended for his service and friendly demeanour-highly recommended
Teddy and his wife run an excellent service. From the moment I contacted them they answered all my questions in full, offered good advice and emailed me promptly.
Teddy came and picked us up from the hotel as promised. The car was very clean, ran like a clock and the price was as quoted. I would not hesitate to use ANZED Rentals again.
Amazing, amazing, amazing. Teddy is the nicest man we met in NZ and he could not do enough to make sure we had the smoothest experience when renting a car from him. I would recommend Anzed to everyone for an easy and wonderful car hire!
My husband and I have rented cars all over the world. Renting from Anzed (Teddy) was the best experience ever. Teddy was very helpful and answered all of my questions before our trip. Upon our arrival in NZ, he thoroughly explained everything about the car, provided maps, a cooler, chairs, and the techno gear for the internet (at a very reasonable cost). I highly recommend this company. Teddy's personalized customer service and attention to detail is amazing. I wish I could find this kind of service elsewhere!
We rent a car from Teddy for 9 days and received outstanding customer service. He provided us with free maps and travelling tips of NZ which turned out to be very useful. He offered free picking up and dropping off service and loaned us a cooler bag for free which was really handy. Our trip wouldn't have been so enjoyable without his service. Thank you Teddy and would like to rent from you again.
Excellent personal service and a great car. If only all car companies were this good..
We - again - rented a car from Teddy, Anzed Rentals. Again we enjoyed superb service. We especially appreciated being provided with two mobile phones.
Chee kai Loh
Outstanding service from Teddy who goes the extra mile to ensure that his customers have a wonderful experience in New Zealand. Provide more than car rental services as Teddy provides good advices on traveling around in New Zealand.
Will definitely recommend Anzed Rentals.
Once again professional,friendly and excellent service from Teddy.Good value and nice extra help with airport pickup,maps,thermos, cooler box, mini wifi and SIM cards, in fact everything you need. I would not use anyone else.
Teddy has excellent customer service skills, he supplied us with a family sedan which gave us no trouble at all. He is so helpful with everything, he can't do enough to help. He picked us up from the airport & supplied extra maps & guides, plus a flask & cool bin. We will be back Teddy.
We hired a budget family sedan. It performed extremely well and was very reliable. The additional free services from Teddy make hiring an Anzed vehicle excellent value for money: pick up from airport, drop off at end of trip, use of cool box, vacuum flask, chairs and CDs. We'd definitely use Anzed again.
Thanks Teddy, for the clean and very good condition car and the little extra you do in supplying maps, brochures etc. with the car for our 30 day trip around the south island during Feb/Mar 2014. have no hesitation in giving you 10/10 for your services.
Excellent service once again from Teddy. Very reasonable prices and he goes the extra mile with phone, maps, even cool box & thermos all included. Would recommend 110% to anyone looking to hire in Christchurch.
In North America, we have very good service-oriented car rentals. But, ANZED surpasses all. From the airport pickup, help at the office (free 'phone, which we needed, maps, etc.), and through to the final dropoff. Teddy at Anzed is the best. He helped us with some other matters, and cared about our circumstance. And, the car was well-kept. We urge any Canadian to rent from Teddy at ANZED!
Rented a Mazda Demio for just over a month. Car was in mint condition, clean and handled the South Island's roads admirably.
Upon arriving in Christchurch, a free call to Anzed and a 10-minute wait saw Teddy pick me up, making life after a day on planes so much easier. I was most impressed with the level of customer care I received: friendly and efficient, and thorough in following through from the initial inquiry to the actual booking. Also, the included mobile phone is an excellent idea!
The reason I chose Anzed was the reviews it received and I can easily see why they are so good. That's why I'm more than happy to give a 10/10, would gladly use them again and strongly urge anyone flying into Christchurch to rent from them. Thanks again Teddy!
Excellent service. We rented a hatchback and it went very well. Easy to book and collect. Teddy provided us with local advice and free mobile phone rental, extra deck chairs and an esky. We also rented a GPS which was very useful.
We were very happy with our rented budget car-- very well maintained and in prime condition. Also, Teddy provided us extra service and was very helpful with useful information. His GPS was very good with updated maps. Free phone rental, cooler and chairs were all very useful at no extrs cost!
Teddy is a star. We received the most genuine customer service. I can't wait to go back to CHC to rent another car from ANZED Rentals.
I can't help but be patriotic when it comes to my home town of Christchurch and when we came across Teddy at ANZED rentals, I have every reason to feel proud of being a Kiwi. Teddy looked after us from the day we arrived with all the information we required for our family holiday. Teddy's service is exceptional and very understanding when there are unexpected delays in returning a vehicle!! I will be recommending him to anyone who I hear visiting Christchurch and we'll definitely be back on our next trip.
Can not thank Teddy enough. He collected us from ChCh Airport at 6:30am with a smile and we got all the paperwork done and were on the way on our three week holiday very quickly after that. The car was clean, reliable and was very easy to drive. We will be using Teddy and Anzed everytime we come back to ChCh. Thanks again.
I cannot imagine we ever rent a car elsewhere in New Zealand. Teddy's service is simpy too good. With the car came a chilly bin, a pocket wifi device and two telephones. Prompt airport pick up and drop off.
Anyone who wishes to rent a car and get the best possible service (at competitive rates), should look no further!
Teddy we will be back!
Brilliant service from Teddy - above and beyond when our plans changed and we needed an extra day at short notice. So pleased we read rankers first too before we booked - fully deserving of the great comments
True to our word we were back at Anzed for a car rental again and very much appreciated that Teddy had records of our previous visit and easily arranged for us to have the car that suited us best again.
Once again our plans changed, this time due to unfortunate circumstances, and Teddy fully understood and was so accommodating.
Can't recommend the company or Teddy highly enough - would be 11/10 if I could!
We rented a car from Teddy for two weeks for an epic trip around the South Island. What distinguishes Anzed from every other company we have ever used is the personal and thoughtful service provided, which provided us with not just a sound car but excellent advice, really useful extras to borrow (e.g. maps, cool box, mobile phone with very good rates) and a proper briefing on the car and the roads. We ended up feeling more like locals than the tourists we actually were. From being picked up at our motel to being dropped off at the airport, the whole process was very easy and friendly and underpinned our happy and troublefree holiday. Hopefully we'll get a chance to visit again and without a doubt we'd go to Teddy if we do.
We rent a car from for 7 days and the experience is perfect. Teddy was warm and professional and give us good and practical tips in driving in nz. Maps and where to go was always provided. Car was clean and very good condition. Overall excellent and strongly recommend for those who need car rental in south island.
From the first e-mail to the returning of the cars it was a great experience.
Top quality car
Top quality price
Top quality service.
Forget the big names go to Teddy and get great service and be treated like a customer not a number.
We hired a car for 14 days from Anzed Rentals and were very pleased with the vehicle and service provided by Teddy. He suggested we might like the free loan of a chiily bin, slikka pads and an umbrella, all of which were essentials for the trip.Teddy took time and care making sure we had the right maps and pointing out things about the car it was useful to know about. The attention to detail was surprisingly good. Teddy was friendly and helpful.
I do not normally give 10's, but in this case I cannot think of a single thing that was not right, so 10/10 it must be.
My wife and I rented a sedan for 2 weeks in September/October 2013. The service and the vehicle were everything one could ask for, and thoroughly vindicated all the glowing reviews that persuaded us to use this company.
We have no hesitation in recommending Teddy's business to anybody. We just haven't found the time to post this review since we returned home.
Wye Huong Yan
It was our first time going to New Zealand (South Island). Although we already did thorough planning on where to go, Teddy gave us alot of brochures and extra information which could not be found online.
Way before we arrived in NZ, Teddy provided prompt and efficient service be it payment or answering any questions I had regarding GPS, mobile phone or WiFi.
Also, the car provided was amazing, it was a 3.0 Toyota Estima that was really powerful and it served our needs perfectly during the entire drive of the south island for 15 days. There were no problems whatsoever.
Being a Singaporean as well, we felt that Teddy took really good care of us and it made us very happy that someone was looking out for us. Anzed Rentals is possibly the only car rental company I would go to should I visit New Zealand again in future. I strongly recommend anyone to rent their car from Anzed.
To Teddy: Thanks for everything! Hope to see you again in future!
Yok Hin Lay
My family and I had a rental car from Anzed Rentals for for a week. We had a Camry for family of 5. The car was very comfortable, excellent condition, very clean and very comfortable for 5 adults. The car was ready when we arrive and we were on our journey in no time. Teddy was most helpful in briefing all drivers on the key driving tips and driving rules differences with other country to make sure we have a safe journey. Personal Touch from Teddy from the minute we arrive thru the time we return the car was most appreciated. These personal touch experience from Teddy is only in Anzed Rentals. Makes you feel comfortable that you are in perfect hands. we have been in email contact with Teddy a month before our arrival and Teddy had also gave me lots of advice on planning my trip around South Island and interesting places to visit and must DOs. Teddy also gave us advice on having a local phones and mobile access because in most locations and during the journey, we can keep in touch with friends and relatives and business. My family and I had a great week driving around South Island of NZ. I strong recommend Anzed Rentals for anyone's rental car needs. Excellent service from Anzed Rental.
Thank you very much for the great hospitality.
The car we rented was excellent, clean and comfortable. We hired a Toyota Estima for the family of five. Spacious car made our 2400km drive around South Island very enjoyable.
Teddy took the trouble to give us advice on the route we planned, which are very helpful.
Should there be another trip to NZ again, I wouldn't hesitate and hire a car from Anzed Rentals. Reliable car, helpful service from owners, just the right formula for a memorable vacation.
Tried 4-5 different car rentals in NZ. Are were quite good, but Anzed is exceptiona:-) Not much more to say. As long as they have cars, i will rent from them :-)
Rented a Nissan Sunny for 13 days and it was in great condition when we received it from Teddy on the first day. He gave us advises on some driving tips and off-the-road scenic spots and also provided us with extra picnic chairs, cooler box and handphone with sim card which we found very useful when booking for accommodations and activities while in NZL.(Calls to most of the companies in NZL are toll free). Great service. Recommended!
We are repeat customers. Service is exceptional: both highly professional and extremely friendly. ANZED provided not only excellent rates but an amazing range of extras at little or no cost.
We first visited NZ a few years ago and rented a car from Anzed Rentals. They looked after us very well and helped make our NZ holiday such a wonderful experience. Importantly they informed us of the local traffic rules and road conditions, and the car was in good condition. We enjoyed so much we returned the next year with a larger group.
I have been driving in NZ on 3 separate month long trips for the last 9 years with cars from 3 different rental agencies. My latest trip was in the North in Oct, 2013. Anzed is still the best. The personal and friendly service offered by Teddy was hard to ignore. He'll go out of his way to ensure your trip is comfortable. The vehicle provided was clean and well maintained. It's my pleasure to have met him
Teddy made the whole transport issue from start to finish totally effortless & seamless for us. From our initial enquiry, Christchurch arrival to our final return of the car, Teddy's service was friendly, professional & efficient.
We have been provided outstanding service by Anzed rentals for many years. As frequent visitors to New Zealand we have used a wide selection of the vehicles for both city and mountain use and without exception, the vehicles provided have been clean, well maintained and suitable for purpose of each visit.
Teddy provides a very personal and friendly service, based from his integrity and efficient business management practices.
Excellent service. Do not see any reason why I should switch to other rental company during my next visit to NZ. Thank you so much Teddy.
Very reliable and vehicles were in good condition and competitive pricing.
I have dealt with Anzed Rentals for over 5 years. I totally recommend them and would use no other rental firm for my regular visits to Christchurch. Teddy has always given me prompt, courteous, personal service. I have never had any problems with any of his vehicles. He can also pick up and deliver to the airport which is a lifesaver when on limited time. I can' t recommend Anzed enough.
Been to Christchurch for 5 times. You are right! I rented my car from Anzed Rentals for all 5 times! Tried a variety of cars. From a budget sedan to a Camry with cruise control they were all in their best condition.
Teddy personality will let you feel welcome the first time you meet him. I've rented from him 5 times, he never lack in his professionalism for all 5 times, explaining in details of the road condition and rules in NZ. He is also a great tour guide having great knowledge of attractions and local eatery. I went to all the restaurant he recommended. They were all totally awesome.
Anzed Rentals is the only choice for my next return!
ANZED Rentals is a great company to book your favourite car for that drive round NZ South Island which you always wanted to do. Teddy from my experience is a friendly, approachable, helpful and patient man. He is in no hurry to push his car to you so that he can go for the next customer. In the days when the use of GPS devices was not common, he took his time to show me on the map and to explain to me the various alternative routes that I could take to reach my destination. Never did he show any sign of impatience. His wife is equally charming. She drove to the airport to pick us up (my wife and I) in record time after our call to ANZED Rentals from the airport. I will not hesitate to go to him should we visit South Island again. I strongly recommend ANZED Rentals to anyone who want a reliable car from a nice gentleman (Teddy) at ANZED Rentals for a great drive round South Island.
My husband chose to use Anzed after reading the reviews and every single one of them is true! The service that Teddy provides is excellent and we will definitely be returning customers. We can not recommend Teddy and his company highly enough and you will not be disappointed by the service, the cars, the additional extras provided or the advice? Thank you Teddy!
Teddy was extremely helpful right from the start, answering my abundant questions about his fleet of cars and the road conditions in NZ. My husband and I rented a Mazda 2 Demio (or Maxx, as it is also known) and this was in great condition. The car drove smoothly over our long drives on the South Island and we never had an issue in the two weeks that we rented. Teddy went above and beyond by lending us an umbrella and thermos, and also provided a prepaid mobile phone and GPS for us to use. Like any good car rental company owner, he also took the time to explain some of the important road rules in NZ. The drop-off to the airport was most appreciated. Thanks for an excellent experience, Teddy.
Great service. Picked up dropped off and a smile all the time what's not to like.
We had our honeymoon in New Zealand. Teddy helped us alot by giving driving tips and all. Car was in perfect condition. We rented a nissan soluna 1.5l. It was more than sufficient for us. Will definitely come back to teddy when we return to New Zealand
We have used ANZED for many trips to NZ in all seasons and using several different cars. We come back to Teddy as our first choice because of his complete professional service, personal approach and attention to detail. We find Teddy goes way above our expectations every time and have only praise for his company.
On top of the many extras already mentioned by other reviews, we really appreciated Teddy's very useful comments to enhance our driving experience in NZ, e.g. the reminder about the single lane bridges which we did encounter around Queenstown. He shows a genuine concern for us to have the best and safest trip. This also shows when he was very willing to offer us an exchange with upgrade quickly when we have a slight concern with the car we already had. He wanted us to feel safe for sure.
We have already asked our friends to check Anzed Rental for themselves for we are sure they will enjoy the experience just like us.
We have hired a car from Teddy and Tammy seven times now. Right from the first hire Teddy's standard of service cannot be equalled. His friendly welcome within minutes of us calling him on the free phone at the airport is always something to look forward to at the beginning of our trips.
We have never faulted the cars, which are always clean and well looked after. Teddy's hire rates are very reasonable. He has many items to borrow eg. thermos, eski bags, chairs, umbrella's, cd's and so many maps that are all offered at no extra cost.
He has mobile phones or sim cards for you to use, we just pay for the cost of our calls.
We feel very privileged to have met Teddy's wife Tammy and family on several occassions.
We both recommend Anzed Car Rentals and are pleased to be able to say that three of our friends have already hired from Teddy.
We are already talking about our next trip to NZ and wont hesitate to get in touch with Teddy.
Well that next time came.....we hired from ANZED Rentals and again Teddy was there to greet us, this time at the station with his smile and friendliness even on a dark, wet, miserable Sunday night. The car had everything we needed. 110% satisfied customers. We would not hesitate in recommending Teddy and ANZED Rentals for car hire and service.
The car we hired was great, reliable & very comfortable to drive. Again it was great to hire a car from this company, from the arrival at Christchurch International Airport & again when dropping the car back. Excellent service
We rented from Anzed twice, back in Apr 2010 and a Camry this month. We need not look for other car rental options because of our wonderful experience with Anzed in 2010. Teddy's personal service was excellent and very helpful which surpassed any other car rental co. The rice cooker, thermo flask, cooler box, ice pack and mobile phone (calls paid separately) were loaned to us at no charge, apart from free maps and brochures, free and flexible pick-up and drop off from airport or hotel. Thanks Anzed and Teddy. We'll be back again to rent from you.
Anzed is fantastic. We chose to rent from them because of their high customer satisfaction and we were not disappointed. The price was excellent; the car, although five years old, was in great condition and we had no problems throughout our month long rental and almost 5000 km of travel. Anzed loaned us a cooler and some freezer packs for it as well as two folding chairs, at no charge. They loaned us a cell phone with NZ number and we only paid for our calls (calls to the US and many other places were $2/hour). They loaned us a wireless hotspot for $1 a day that let us use our computers in many places and avoid the often very high charges for internet at hotels, motels, and lodges (we paid for data at a very reasonable rate). I only wish they were in more locations in NZ so that you could rent in one place and return it in another, but they are so good it's worth making Christchurch your base for the South Island. And the South Island is so beautiful everywhere that it's worth doing a complete circuit.
Highly professional and extremely helpful.
This was the second time we have used Anzed and Teddy was just as attentive this time as the first time.
A clean and comfortable car, whilst the sat nav and mobile telephone came in useful as well as the many maps, guides and pamphlets provided
I would recommend Anzed to anyone requiring a car rental whilst in Christchurch and will certainly use them again next time we are visiting
Anzed Rentals Limited provided an excellent car rental experience. Teddy's customer service was great. All directions sent to us were easy to understand and helpful. Teddy picked us up promptly from the airport after we phoned him on the free number from the airport phone booth. The vehicle was comfortable, reliable and economical. A pleasure to drive. Teddy also provided us with maps and brochures, an iPod car connection, esky and ice packs, a mobile phone and a portable wifi modem. We only had to pay extra for our phone calls and for wifi access. The extras from Anzed were much appreciated, and we would certainly use this great business again.
Really pleased with our car hire. We got a great little car which was 100% reliable at a very competitive price. In addition to the car we were provided with maps, a pre loaded phone and thermos flask, all of which were very useful. We were picked up from the airport at the start of our holiday and dropped off at our hotel at the end.
The service provided is much better than anything any of the large car company's provide and I would thoroughly recommend Anzed Rentals to everyone. A very satisfied customer.
From the moment Teddy picked us up from our Christchurch accommodation the service level was superb. From the quality of the car plus the extras of the phone and the cooler box and maps, we could not have asked for or been given a better level of service.
I would not hesitate to recommend Teddy and Anzad to any of my friends visiting South Island. Teddy is a likable and honest person who is genuinely keen to make sure his customers have the very best service he can offer. Totally professional.
Great Service, god prizes, what more could you ask for.
This has to be the best car rental service known. Reliable, efficient, thoughtful...excellent value. You can't go wrong choosing Teddy.
Teddy promptly collected us from Christchurch airport after contacting him via phone (free call). We were provided with some maps and travel guides. Teddy also provided us with an esky, car charger and adapter free of charge. He also provided us with helpful local information and gave us a run down of the local traffic laws. The vehicle was clean, reliable and very fuel efficient. At the conclusion of our trip, Teddy dropped us back at the airport. Fantastic service. Above and beyond expectations. Highly recommended.
Anzed Rentals Limited lived up to our expectations. Teddy's customer service was fantastic! Teddy picked us up promptly from the airport after we phoned him on the free number from the airport phone booth.
We then collected the car which we used to travel over 3000 kms around the South Island. The vehicle was reliable and economical. In addition, Teddy provided us with maps and brochures, a choice of CDs, a thermos, esky and ice packs, a mobile phone and a portable modem. We only had to pay extra for our phone calls and wifi access. Anzed's service exceeded anything we have experienced with other car hire companies and we would certainly use this great business again.
Anzed Rentals is an excellent car hire agency. I have rented from Anzed four times in the past four years, for periods of one day to four months. I am sometimes reluctant to rent from off-brand agencies that I don't know, but from my first rental to the most recent, the vehicles, terms, and extras have always been communicated very clearly from the start, the vehicles have been in fine condition, and all rental conditions have been clear and straightforward. Anzed also makes borrowing a cell phone and other items simple. Teddy, the owner, is a good-natured and honest man to do business with.
Once you have rented from Anzed Rentals you will never want to rent from Hertz, Avis, or anyone else again. This operation puts all other car hire companies to shame. You get very good vehicles in excellent condition, are picked up at the airport within moments of arrival, and have full AA coverage for your trip. In the basic fundamentals Anzed Rentals operates flawlessly. However there is so much more available to you when you rent from here.
Would you like to choose some CDs for your listening pleasure? No worries, there is a large selection to browse through and choose from. Perhaps you would like a couple of camp chairs so you can enjoy the scenic views that are everywhere in the south island in a little more comfort than usual. Help yourself. If you want a vacuum flask to keep your coffee hot all day and a cool box to keep your beers cool, no worries they are readily available for you. Do you need a mobile phone or a dongle for internet access for your time in New Zealand? No worries, just ask. If this is your first trip to New Zealand and you would like a short briefing on the local traffic laws and conventions you will get this as well as directions and a map to take you to your first hotel. All the service is efficient and friendly.
You may be wondering how much more all these extras cost, but you will be pleasantly surprised at the competitive prices. By the time you are dropped off at the airport you will realize that you have been treated like a VIP the whole time.
This is the way all car hire should be, but never is. So outstanding is the service that three quarters of Anzed Rentals car hires are from repeat business or referrals from previous customers. It is not surprising, this service really is the best.
We have used Anzed a few times now for our holidays in South Island ( from the UK) and we have always had great service from Teddy. Of course, it's his business and so he will always go the extra mile. His NZ mobiles and modem have saved me a fortune. I particularly like being able to hire a car with moderate km on the clock. Not too expensive but not one of those rentawreck models!. The only thing wrong with Anzed is that it doesn't operate in the UK!
A great company to deal with , reliable car ,friendly and helpful staff. Couldn't fault them . I would deffinately recommend them .

Teddy was very helpful and provided us with lots of driving advice and where to go for our southern island tour. My wife and I really appreciate his excellent service. Car was very reliable and well kept.
Not your typical car rental company. Friendly service (Teddy is a gem). Uses older cars, but highly reliable during our 2,000 km adventure. Teddy provides lots of extras: CDs, coolers, phones, and advice on driving on New Zealand's winding roads. He even picked us up and dropped us off. Totally satisfied!
This is the best car rental company that I have ever used. This includes all countries I have visited including USA, UK, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Asia.
They are so obliging, helpful and knowledgeable I wish all rental companies were like this.
great budget car and brilliant service. we were looking for an affordable little car to tour south island. teddy pick us up from the airport, showed us to the car, gave us all the local info we needed and off we went. easy, affordable, quick and trouble free!
We've rented cars from Teddy four times now and will continue to for as long as we're able to return to NZ. The cars are well-maintained and dependable and Teddy always goes out of his way to make sure we have all that we need, offering maps to chilly bins!
Thanks to Teddy once again for providing us with a well maintained and reliable car.
Along our trip, we saw other car rental being towed away and we were really grateful that we have rented our car from a trustworthy rental (Anzed Rentals)!
Once again, we also wanted to thank to Teddy and Tammy for their excellent services rendered to us, giving us a worry free holidays driving around NZ!
Big Thank You to Anzed Rental!
I've had the pleasure of renting from Anzed many times. I'd tried several other rental agencies on my first few trips to Christchurch, but once I switched to Anzed I haven't looked back. Anzed is an excellent deal, and the rental experience is efficeint and convenient. Teddy always picks me up promptly from the airport. He reviews the country's driving rules and provides maps of anywhere I want to go. Coolers, thermoses and folding chairs are available at no charge. Likewise, a cell phone is included in the rental price. Teddy is always cheerful and helpful. The cars are always reliable. In the six years I've rented, I've had no problems with any of them. I can always count on Teddy and Anzed, and look forward to the experience every year. Why switch when you've found the best.
My family recently went to the South Island for holiday. This was a last minutes plan. We rented a car from ANZED and I would like to recommend this company to anyone who wants to rent a car from Christchurch.
The owner Teddy gave us a mobile phone number that we could use before we arrived at Christchurch. This service was charged according to the usage of the mobile phone – nothing up front! Clear instructions on how to contact him using the public phone free of charge was also given to us.
Upon our arrival, he picked us up within few minutes of our call. My husband was used to driving a manual car, Teddy explained patiently about the difference between manual and auto operated car. He also explained the difference in traffic rules between our country and NZ. All these explanations enabled us to have a smooth journey throughout.
Teddy also provided extra services to us, he loaned us rice cooker, flask and chiller box for free. I don’t think any other car rental company will provide these sevices to their customers.
Thank you Teddy for your excellent services.
As a tourist in NZ road trip, most important is to have a reliable car and secondly is good fuel efficient car to cut cost down.
I rented Anzed car (Nissan Pulsar) for 15 days and drove a total mileage of 1838km. During this period the car performed perfectly without any problem and fuel consumption is consider low. All in all, I spend NZD293.60 on fuel in my entire trip by driving within speed limit at all times and smooth pick up.
Assuming I pay an average of $2.15per litre fuel, that is 136.55litres which is only 7.4litre per 100kms or 13.5kms per litre. I think that is a fantastic result and very very good fuel efficiency, especially considering the mountainous terrain where I should consume much more fuel.
Furthermore, West Coast one of the main road was washout and close for several days due to heavy rain. Without Anzed advised not to drive to Christchurch via West Coast, I would experience detour and hectic drive
Should I visit NZ again, Anzed rentals definitely my first choice of car company. Thumbs up for Anzed.
Use Anzed Rentals!!! Everything from the pick up to the car to the information to the return to the price was excellent! Teddy did a great job and made everything very easy. We rented, I think, the next to the smallest car and, other than slow get up and go passing and on hills (which we should have expected), it was perfect for the two of us. No problems at any time, and at almost half the price of the airport-site companies, this was probably the best deal you'll ever find.
My girlfriend & I had an amazing car rental experience during our 2 week holiday @ South Island. Teddy (the owner) was extremely personal, friendly and helpful. We rented a budget 1.3L Nissan Sunny and despite it being an older car, it worked perfectly well. We could tell that the car was very well maintained and it even delivered above our expectations. In addition, Teddy rented us an extra ice box, a thermo flask, a SIM card, and some adaptors for free! You wouldn't have possibly gotten that from any other big car rental company around. These little things made our trip a lot more convenient and enjoyable. We would definitely rent from Teddy again when we do get back to South Island.
Absolutely the best rental car experience I have ever had. It all began with timely and helpful email exchange as I planned my trip. Teddy picks you up within 5 minutes at the airport. You are on the road in no time with very personal service. We got a great rate on a Nissan sunni that gave us no problems. One of the best perks are the coolers, thermus, chairs, and phone Teddy offers (at no cost). The phone saved us a few times when we needed to change reservations and for calling back to the US it had fantastic rates. I will recommend Anzed to anyone I know travelling to New Zealand.
This is a small, but excellent rental car place. I rented in Christchurch and from USA. Pick up at airport 4 minutes after toll free call to Teddy. (location is about 3 min drive from airport). Great communications via email in getting this set up. Teddy explained all options very clearly. One of best perks for me was the free cell phone where I only paid for minutes used at a very cheap rate. Teddy has coolers to use (I already had one) and maps, info etc. Goes thru everything about the car - wonderful for someone not familiar with small differences from US cars. AAA++ rated in my opinion
Excellent service and experience! Teddy has not only offered us the best rate, the car was in good condition. Teddy gave us suggestions on the local attractions, showed us the driving route and even offer phone & sim card to use and accessoories like cooler box, thermal flask to rent for free! Feels really well taken care of and impressed by his personable service! Will definitely recommend friends to Anzed rental if they are going to New Zealand!
Wondeful experience. We rented a 1.8L Nissan Bluebird for 10 days. Teddy picked us up from the airport and briefed us in detail about the car and driving tips in New Zealand. We also loaned a sim card, rice cooker, cooler box and themos flask from him free-of-charge. Teddy's service was impeccable to say the least.
We had no problems with the car and had a great holiday driving. We would definitely recommend Teddy's service.
Anzed Car Rental is awesome. I've never had good service like that. Also when I had to cancel my car Teddy was still friendly and open minded. When I will come back, I will definitly rent my car there. Hope I can meet Teddy one time. Very nice person (:
This was the the most friendly,efficient and helpful car rental experience that we have experienced. The car,a budget (older) sedan model was in excellent condition and spotless. Teddy provided us with plenty of local info and offers loads of handy extra items as well as the airport pick up and drop off at no extra charge.
If / when we get back to NZ we won't bother looking anywhere else for our rental vehicle.
We have used anzed Rental several times now . The cars provided are always clean and in good order. The service is excellent, and very personable. Many extra items are offered and available- such as outdoor chairs, chilly bin, maps. Teddy the owner provides exceptional customer service. He is always prompt picking up from the airport, and we have never experienced difficulties on return. His kind,friendly and professional manner is a total pleasure to look forward to if you need a rental car in Christchurch.
The service Teddy provided is very good, including a rice cooker, a mobile phone and a hot water flask, snow chain...
All the extra accessories are free of charge. There are also child seat, cooler box/bag in the garage, if you need it, just ask Teddy and he will provide them to you .He is a super nice person. Next time, we will still go to Anzed to rent a car if we travel NZ again.
Professional and personalised service. Availability of SIM cards for cellphone and computer a great help. Good quality car even though is budget model. No hidden charges. Highly recommended to travelers who appreciate quality service at reasonable price.
Best service I've ever had from a hire car company. Handy location close to Christchurch Airport and they pick you up from the airport. Car clean and well maintained, with useful additional options such as a mobile phone and a 3G modem for your laptop. Next trip to South Island I will definitely be using Anzed again.
We always book with Anzed rentals and are never disappointed. We always experience fantastic personal service, it is very easy to book and pay, the cars are always in great condition and we have never had any issues. A great location from the airport we can not recommend this enough. If you are needing a rental car for South Island New Zealand - use this company.
A personal touch to car rental. Teddy was extremely friendly and helpful from suggesting attractions to visit to the driving rules in NZ. Services like GPS, telephone SIM card, snow chains, travel adapters was made available. Best off all where his advice on places to visit, restaurants to try out, markets to visit and also where to get the best water! Thanks Teddy and hope to come back soon.
We hired an RV for a 9 day ski trip of the mid canterbury fields. Ted picked us up from the airport and dropped us off. He gave us an older Honda CRV. Never missed a beat, started first time even when covered with snow in the Temple Basin car park. AND he was the cheapest. Can't fault it. Highly recommended.
A fantastic renting experience overall and certainly appreciated the many extras that were thrown in (at no charge)! The MPV we rented was reliable, clean and in good condition, not forgetting at very reasonable rates too. Owner Teddy was really patient and detailed and went out of his way to answer all our queries.
Will not hesitate to recommend Anzed to anyone looking to rent a car in South Island
Our whole experience with Anzed was awesome, from booking and payment, through to pick-up and drop-off. Teddy provided a very friendly and helpful service; nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The car was clean, well maintained and was exactly what we were after. The price was excellent compared to larger rental companies. Will definitely be back to both Anzed and New Zealand!
we rented a car for just one day and needed a reasonably priced ,simple but safe vehicle to get out to Lincoln Uni.We were completely happy with the car but also really delighted with the friendly service provided by Teddy.We will always rent from Anzed in future.
Car was very reliable and we had great service from rental company.
ANZED Rentals provided an exceptional lever of service and customer care.
From the car rental perspective - The car i rented was clean and well looked after. Although their office isn't in the airport, it is minutes away and pick up from the airport was very prompt. It would have probably taken more time to walk to Hertz's car park then get to ANZED office!
Further to that, ANZED had local phones and a USB modem that we borrowed at no extra cost, only paying for what we used. Allow me to stay contacted with work and have the convenience of having a local mobile number. <-- A service i wished all car rental companies provided since i need to be connected where ever I travel.
Teddy of ANZED is an exceptional man both professionally and personally. Totally trustworthy, he always goes that extra mile to ensure his customers are really looked after.
We have used his service on many occasions and have never been less than delighted with his vehicles, his thoughtfulness and the superb value he always provides.
It is always a pleasure to meet him - rather like an old friend. Our visits to New Zealand would not be the same without the part he plays in our enjoyment of this beautiful country.
Our most recent experience has, once again, provided excellent friendly service at a competitive price. Consistently high standards over many years.
Choosing Anzed for our car rental is easily one of the best decision we have made for our NZ trip.
Teddy is friendly, nice and generous as well. Upon picking us up from the airport and completing the quick paper work in his office, he shared with us some advices on driving in NZ and some of the nice places around NZ which are worth a visit.
He also lent us a chill box absolutely free which comes in handy in our stay in NZ. You can rent a mobile phone and a prepaid sim card from him as well at no cost. You just pay for the sms and talktime you use.
I would not hesitate to recommend Teddy to anyone who wish to rent a car in South Island. Great service with competitive rates to boot. What more can I ask for?
Hope to see you again soon, Teddy!
Great personalised service and nothing to much trouble. Thanks Teddy, you'll certainly see us again.
It is a top notch service we got from Teddy during my trip in New Zealand last week. When we arrived at Anzed Rentals, we got a really comprehensive explanation on what we need to know to drive during the trip. Besides, Teddy also gave us a few suggestions on the attraction spots which I would not want to miss. It really helps alot. I would definitely recommend Anzed Rentals to my friends in future.
The service we received from Teddy at Anzed was EXCEPTIONAL. When we were looking to hire a car while in New Zealand we found the Anzed site on google and never bothered to look any further. Emails and questions were all answered promptly. Due to a change in flight schedule, Teddy emailed me a list of motels to spend the first night and picked us up the next morning. The car was beautifully clean and reliable. Nothing was too much trouble for him to organize ..thermos, esky, internet and much more if we needed it. I have recommended Anzed to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Anzed for the BEST ever experience with car rentals! *****
Teddy and Tammy, thank you once again for a great rental experience. This must be at least our 12th rental from you and each time we have been impressed with your service, the car's cleanliness and reliability, but most of all, it's your 'can do attitude'. Always ready to oblige. See you again in October. Regards Lyn and Mike Phillips
After stumbling across ANZED, we were booking blind from the UK. I am very happy I did. Teddy and Co. charge reasonable rates, the car was in great shape, ran perfectly and we grew rather fond of it in the three weeks we spent on the south island. But it's the SERVICE that was worth 10/10. Teddy patiently explained everything we needed to know and more, he gave us (essential) extras like coolbox, flask, converted plugs for our gadgets! Plus a great deal on a local mobile phone for the duration. We were treated like family not mere customers! Soooooo different to the corporate rental companies. 100% recommended.
Thanks Teddy - fantastic service as always. We know we don’t have to look anywhere else! ANZED cant be bettered! Your airport pick up and drop off service is just brilliant. As are all the extras you offer (mobile phone, thermos, maps, chilli bin etc), which sometimes we need and sometimes we don’t. See you next visit.
We had used Teddy's service before and were very impressed, but this time he surpassed expectations again by providing everything we needed for a toddler. Car-seat, stroller, plus the offer of so much more that we didn't need. Being collected from and delivered to the airport is always a pleasure....stress-free, quick, efficient...and a time to chat with Teddy who is such a nice man!
We have just had the pleasure of renting a car from Teddy and have nothing but praise for the attention and service we received. We have no hesitation in recommending Anzed Rentals to anyone requiring a rental vehicle in Christchurch.
Des & Margaret Waldron
I have experienced renting from all over the world before but never have I come across such personalised and attentive service from a car rental firm.
Teddy thinks of everything before I could even ask, and his repertoire of chilling bins, mobile phones mobile broadband etc makes holidaying and driving in NZ a breeze. Emails are answered very promptly and I was picked up from the airport and away in my car within no time at all.
Could not ask for a better experience. Highly recommended!
Outstanding service. The car was very reliable and rental costs were very reasonable. The free moblile phone was a great extra. Will be recommending to any of my friends coming to NZ. Thanks again Teddy.
After checking with some companies via mail we were positively surprised with the exceptional good replies from this company. We decided to rent here and everything worked fine, nice Toyota Camry car, complimentary we got a mobile phone, chilly bin, hot water bottle and last but not least a modem to use internet on the way. SInce I need to access my mail every day this was a fantastic option not to depend on internet cafes or hotels. Highly recommended !
As ever, your service was perfect. For years now we have not considered looking elsewhere for a rental car. Plan a trip to NZ, call Anzed...
Next year we will be back. Hope that ChCh will have recovered a bit by that time.
Thanks again Teddy, you have become part of our NZ extended family.
Mark and family.
