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!
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 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!
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!
This is the second time we have used Hitch Rentals and would definitely use them again. Their service is always fast and friendly.
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 ☺
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)
First class experience and very competitive
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.
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.
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
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."
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

Best rental company in new zealand. Very well recommended. A+++. Thanxx Elliot
I really liked the service of Hitch car rentals. Elliot and Anthony was extremely friendly. HITCH - Good value for 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.
