Easy as Airport Pickup
Auckland based Hitch. Cheapest rental car company when I booked. Pick up van from airport. Has Hitch written on side. Call them when you land. Instructions in thier email. Please read this. 15mins to pick up and about a 8min ride to car pick up location. Staff friendly. Easy drop off and shuttle to airport on return. Make sure you have a map or GPS as you need to get on motorway. I did and was fine.
Good service, the car was just what I wanted. Clean economical and nippy. Ali at ChristChurch on the desk sorted out a problem I had ,with a smile. Thank you.
This is the second time we have used Hitch Rentals and would definitely use them again. Their service is always fast and friendly.
Really happy with my rental from Hitch. Fast , efficient and friendly. We hired a 4 wheel drive at queenstown. The lady was polite and friendly. Made the whole process easy . Will hire from no one else but Hitch.
GOOD JOB HITCH!!!!
What an amazing hire car experience. Staff were friendly and the car comfortable! And... so much cheaper than any other search!! Would DEFINITELY go with them on my next trip to New Zealand (& other parts of the world if there is a dealership)
I just loved the car that we hired, so much so, I think that I will purchase the same make and model for my own car.
Hitch car rental were a absolutely wonderful company to deal with. Friendly, polite and only to willing to help and support. They were also interested in any comments that I might have, that could help with customers relationships. The following sentence says it all.
"If I have another opportunity to travel to New Zealand again, they would be the only rental car company that I would use."
Rented in Christchurch for 3 days and will absolutely rent from Hitch again!
The friendly and helpful customer service, quality of the vehicle and cost made it an excellent customer experience.
Our Hitch rental went without a hitch and we recommend Hitch to others.
Very friendly service and ease of transaction. Card only payment as they don't take cash. All and all very cheap and great service.
What a fantastic experience from Elliot. Fast efficient and extremely friendly. The prompt service was appreciated. Even though they advertise the cars as being older, you would never know. The little car we had was in almost perfect condition. We wil be returning again and will not hesitate to use these guys out of Christchurch. I would recommend to all and you definitely get value for your money
Very affordable prices with their 'discount25' discount code. Good service too. Airport pickup was easy/friendly plus they had my car in stock. Very good.
Awesome helpful friendly team who went out of there to accommodate you. Car was clean obviously well looked after. The Hitch team were awesome totally recommend for great service, cheap & reliable rentals

Fantastic service. Me and my infant were picked up within minutes of calling to say we had arrived at airport and then dropped off back to airport superfast. Great prices, great car. Will hire through Hitch again ☺
Rented car from Hitch Car Rentals in Christchurch in November. service was great from the airport pickup to dropoff to motel when we returned the car . Staff were very helpful with directions for the area. Pricing was good and the car supplied was great.Highly recommend and would use them again. Thanks Hitch car rentals
A very comfortable and easy experience with hitch car rentals.We booked a small car but it was upgraded to a new mazda 3.The service was very quick and friendly,no dramas.Free pick and drop to the airport was most convenient.Would definately recommend hitch car rentals for a stress free holiday

The cars are exceptional value. Second time I've used them both now in Auckland and Christchurch. The guy they have in Christchurch provides exceptional customer service. They're still a little slow on processing, but they're newish. They're my go to place for cars. Thanks Hitch!
Efficient, straight forward online booking service. Followed up by friendly team at Hitch who showed me helpful point's about driving car I was hiring. Contract easy to understand what insurance option I was selecting. Quick shuttle service to airport. Will use Hitch again.
Great little Honda Fit gave no troubles the whole way.
One tyre a bit flat on pick up ( fine once we put some air in) and they unexpectedly held a large bond because we had booked through a third party.
Pick up at airport took about 45 minutes on arrival, then another 30 or so at the office before we got on the road.
We hired a car from Hitch last week and were extremely happy with the car, the price and especially the service. It is our first trip to NZ and we were running late for our internal flight from Auckland to Christchurch. We didn't have any time to fill up the car and when we arrived at Hitch there was no problem and, in fact, the accountant gave us a lift to the domestic terminal straightaway rather than having to wait around for the free shuttle. We got to our flight on time and will be using Hitch when we return to Auckland in a few days time and would recommend to everybody. Thanks!
Good company, rapid pick up and flexible drop off. A bit of distance from airport but that's what you get for a budget. Great car, better than my own one!
I really liked the service of Hitch car rentals. Elliot and Anthony was extremely friendly. HITCH - Good value for money.
Cheapest rental I could find. Didn't even have to pay a bond. Was given a good car.
We were so happy with our Auckland Hitch rental experience so we had high hopes when we landed in Christchurch and were able to book another rental car through Hitch for our 11 day road trip around the South Island. We got our car during an after hours pick up and after having a Renault Megane in Auckland we were pretty bummed about getting a Mazda that had its central console completely in Japanese. We called up the next day and spoke with Anthony to see if we could switch to another car that didn't have Japanese as the default language (my friend and I are from the states so driving on the left is stressful enough, we figured a console speaking to us in a different language didn't do a lot to help). We took in our Mazda and Anthony helped us trade to the same Renault Megane we had in Auckland! We could not be more pleased with Anthony's attentive and kind customer service. He really helped us out and we're extremely grateful to him and Hitch for helping to give us a wonderful New Zealand road trip experience!
Relaxed, friendly and very easy to deal with. I'd definitely recommend this company.
I've dealt with other car rental companies who are pretentious, unfriendly, and / or pushy with their sales pitch for additional extras e.g. excess insurance but these guys were great.
First class experience and very competitive
Went to Christchurch for a couple of days. Needed a car. Found Hitch on the internet. Easy booking, easy pick up and drop off, great car.All in all great experience.

La mejor compañía en New Zealand calidad-precio! Recomendable 100%
Best rental company in new zealand. Very well recommended. A+++. Thanxx Elliot
Great upgraded car..Mazda 3. Was comfortable, and easy to drive, and MODERN!!!!!!
Didn't realize that CHCH was so big.. should have added gps!
Have used a number of rental cars, this was up to the BIG BOYS, but at a much much lower price!!!!
Only drawback was that it was not a " Drive off from airport", had to phone and wait 15 mins beside Taxi stand to be picked up by shuttle service, but , it was worth it!!! Return from depot to airport by shuttle .
An affordable tidy little car. I was picked up and dropped off at the airport. Customer service was good though it took a while to be able to get hold of them on the phone when i got to the airport to arrange a pick up. I will definanetly use Hitch again.
We booked our car hire through Car Del Mar, which we normally do from other positive experiences. There wasn’t too much info on Hitch Car Rentals so we were a bit apprehensive. However, we couldn’t have been more wrong - what a great company! After a disappointing experience with our Campervan hire Hitch were great.
Arranging the transfer from the airport was easy and efficient, once we arrived collecting the car and sorting the paperwork was so quick and easy and there were no hidden charges. We hired an automatic and had a Toyota Prius, a little different to what i’m used to but the staff we very helpful with clearly showing you how to operate the car and if you needed any more help they were happy to assist. Dropping the car back off was fine too, no problems and paperwork was completed quickly and deposit on the credit card returned. The return to the airport was quick and stress free. The service we received here was first class throughout, do not hesitate to book Hitch Car Rental.
