    Default Car Rental Auckland

    Hi,

    I just wondered if anyone could recommend a cheap car hire company. We are coming over in May and need to hire. Some of the quotes I have found are really high. We only want an economy car, nothing flashy!!

    So if anyone know of a firm it would be really helpful.

    Many thanks :icon_razz:

    Default Car Rental Auckland

    Hi,

    When I first came here and hired a car, it was about $29 a day, but was of pretty questionable quality! When Welshgirl and our little one arrived after me, I got a car from Rent-a-dent, which was $55 a day, but of a much higher quality. This was a 2ltr estate car (station wagon), and there were much cheaper economy cars available.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    You could buy a used car for $500-$1500

    I used these guys for my trip down to ChCh. Pretty good rates, unlimited mileage. www.drivenz.co.nz

    Default Thank you both for your replies

    We are just coming out for a holiday, at the moment so not actually looking to buy.

    When/if we get accepted we will definitely need to buy.

    I will have a look into the ones you mention for hire though.

    Thanks again ::):

    Hi

    We were out in New Zealand Dec 03 and used www.airportcarhire.co.nz. We had the car over 21 days so got $24/day & $6 insurance waiver.

    We were picked up and dropped off at the airport and had no problems with car at all and travelled a huge distance.

    Hope this is of use
