Location information for Christchurch

Christchurch is on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, the perfect location for exploring in a car rental in Christchurch Downtown. Christchurch Downtown is at the heart of what is known locally as Garden City due to its profusion of attractive parks and green spaces.

Christchurch Downtown is not too big and is located either side of the meandering Avon River. The banks of the river are lined with parks shaded by weeping willows and poplars, where street artistes offer entertaining diversions. Downtown has great heritage buildings which house quaint shops, bars and eateries.

City tourist officials boast that when driving cheap car hire in Christchurch Downtown alpine skiing, whale watching points, golf courses, wineries, parks, nature reserves and hot-air ballooning are all within a short drive. In the city itself are Christchurch Botanic Gardens and a diverse collection of natural and human artifacts in the Canterbury Museum.

Leaving the city with car hire in Christchurch Downtown are Ferrymead Heritage Park and New Brighton. Ferrymead contains steam trains and electric trams, which visitors can ride on, an old-time village complete with an old church, railway station, a pioneer classroom, antique postal equipment, museums, and displays of historic utility vehicles.

New Brighton features a long sandy beach, a landmark pier, antique and handicraft shops, atmospheric bars and cafés, and is a firm favorite with swimmers, surfers and windsurfers. Bottle Lake Forest Park is northwards on the coast and has hiking, horseback riding and cycling trails. Beaches such as Woodend and Waikuku are farther round the shores of Pegasus Bay.

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 Car-Rentals.com 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?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

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).
