Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Christchurch?

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when hiring a car in Christchurch. Firstly, you must have a full, unrestricted driving licence that you've had for at least a year before being able to hire a car in Christchurch. If your licence isn't an English licence, it'll need to be accompanied by an International Driving Permit. You'll also need a valid credit card and photo ID like a passport. The legal rental age is 18 years old, but you'll be charged a young driver surcharge if you're younger than 25.

What are the rules for driving in Christchurch?

To start with, keep up to date on the department of motor vehicles in your area to stay aware of any recent law changes. Remember to drive on the left-hand side of the road, pass on the right-hand side and always wear your seatbelt, whether you're a driver or a passenger. The legal blood alcohol level in Christchurch is 0.05% and heavily enforced. If you're going out for a party, leave your Christchurch car hire at home and use a taxi app.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Christchurch?

When trying to decide on the right cheap car hire in Christchurch, it helps to focus on your needs. A smaller, lighter model like a Hyundai i20 will be the most economical and fuel-efficient, while a larger 4x4 like a Nissan Pathfinder is great for a bigger group travelling in style. A campercar like the Toyota Estima is a popular car hire choice for the regular backpacker in Christchurch planning on hitting the road and travelling long-distance. It isn't necessary to choose bigger model cars to get around Christchurch, but they could add to the fun.

Where are the best places to park in Christchurch?

You'll be glad to know, parking a cheap car hire in Christchurch is usually a breeze. The City Council has provided five multi-level parking buildings inside the city and a local company, Gap Filler offers socially conscious car parks. The Crossing is another car park building that offers two-hour parking for a nominal fee. Wilson Parking offers car parks in the city centre and a handy app that goes with it.
