Location information for Christchurch

Arranging for car hire in Christchurch is a common practice among travellers particularly because the city is an ideal starting point for tours around New Zealand's South Island. The city is well known as a Garden City mainly due to the number of nature parks and reserves that are located all over the area.

Getting a budget car rental is the best way to get around the city. The Christchurch Cathedral is one of its most notable landmarks located in the centre of the city and is also one of the most popular starting points for tours. From there, head for the many art galleries and museums to learn more about Christchurch.

The Art Gallery is always a great place to start with its more than five thousand items on exhibit. After that, drive to the Air Force Museum where you will find replicas of fighter planes that will tell you the history of the country's air force. The Canterbury Museum with its historic artefacts is also worth exploring.

The city is also home to a number of restaurants and food outlets that sell every kind of cuisine imaginable. The Cathedral square is especially popular for its street food with vendors selling quick snacks such as fish and chips and even Chinese food.

After exploring the whole city, take your cheap car hire in Christchurch and drive to some of the most popular destinations in South Island. For instance, Akaroa is great for food trips while Nelson is an ideal place for basking in the sun and indulging in wine and art.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
