Kieran Mckay

Excellent service. The pickup from Auckland airport was great, the staff who handled our paperwork were friendly and very helpful and the car was awesome. Clean, tidy and very fuel efficient. The handing back process happened without us even noticing then we were given a ride back to the airport by a very friendly staff member. Good one hitch, we will look you up next time we need a car, thanks.

Maggie Cooper

We loved the welcoming convenience of the airport pickup on arrival.. The car pickup was efficient, the car was clean and very adequate for our needs. Staff were courteous, friendly and helpful with local information to get us started.. The return of the car again was no problem and we were immediately taken to our hotel.. Great service thank you.

Excellent service, pick up was prompt and the car was great. We opted for a people carrier/minivan and it was great, loads of room and very comfortable.
Will definitely use Hitch again and will recommend them to friends and family

A friendly, uncomplicated and transparent car rental service. Vehicle was clean and well maintained and shuttle service to/from airport worked flawlessly. Will definitely use them again on future visits.

Fantastic customer service and great motor vehicle . In past always seem to have had some glitch with car rental companies but to be very corny "No Glitch with Hitch"
On a serious note would definitely use them again if travelling NZ. VERY PROFESSIONAL and their pricing is amazing -. Thanks again for being a positive part if our holiday experience

I highly recommend using this Car Rental company by far, they never seem to disappoint me each time I use their service. The online booking process is simple & straight forward to collecting the car on pickup & drop off, the shuttle from the airport is great too, the staff are always friendly & accommodating. I consider myself a returning customer as I have booked several car rentals through Hitch & will continue doing so in the future!! Thank you!!

Chris Sullivan

Fantastic prices, great quality car and friendly service at the Auckland pickup depot. We hired a Toyota Prius hybrid and it was brilliant, hardly used any petrol and ran like a charm.
Thanks team for the great service.

Daniel Hunyadi

Car was great and service was so smooth and easy. Quick pick up from airport. So much less hassle than using a big hire company not to mention much better value.

Never heard of Hitch rentals before but after our first experience using them, definitely going to use them again and again! The car we got had no issues and the Mahindra we had was the perfect car for our road trip across the North Island of New Zealand. Reasonably priced, excellent car fleet and flexible service and return times. No extra cost for more drivers of the car, we were all under 25 and this was not an issue for Hitch. 100% using Hitch Rentals again.
