About our Christchurch Airport Car Hire
Christchurch International Airport is located 12 km northwest of the city. Car hire from the airport is simple with Rental Cars New Zealand. Our shuttle will pick you up for a transfer to our car hire branch just a few minutes away.
Just call our Freephone number 0800 888 358 once you’ve arrived and collected your luggage and the shuttle will collect you from outside the airport terminal.
Christchurch – Gateway to the South
Positioned centrally on the east coast of the South Island, Christchurch is the South Island’s largest city and is still a beautiful place to visit. Highlights include the famous Botanic Gardens, the Antarctic Centre, Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, Canterbury Museum, Re:Start in Cashel Mall and the range of creative cafes, shops and other new businesses that have popped up as part of the city’s rebuild.
The “garden city” is also the gateway for most South Island holidays, including road trips to the ski resort town of Queenstown and the unforgettable fiords of Milford Sound. Within closer reach are the spectacular scenery of the West Coast, hot pools and whales around Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura, and the beautiful setting and adventure opportunities of Akaroa and Banks Peninsula.
Rental Cars New Zealand will help you make the most of your trip from the moment you arrive at the airport by providing you with great service and affordable car hire.
