Hi all,
I am planning a trip by my own to New Zealand this Christmas (2 weeks trip). It is the first time I am planning by myself a big trip and I am concerned for some things. One of these is the issue of car rental. I saw that local firms offer better prices, but some of them have old cars, older than 10 years and for others I read negative reviews. Is there anybody who can give me an advice about car rental in New Zealand? Any suggestion for a firm, or any firm I should avoid? I am arriving at Auckland and departing from Christchurch.

Thank you in advance!
Iordanis

Because you want to pick up in Auckland and drop off in Christchurch, a local firm will not do - it'll have to be a firm with offices around the country. Apex is a possibility or Vroomvroom or Budget or Thrifty. I suggest you read some of their reviews - I've used Budget before and they were fine.

Enjoy NZ.:)
