Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Christchurch Avis rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Christchurch?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Christchurch?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Christchurch is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Avis's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Christchurch?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Christchurch. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Christchurch vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Avis requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Christchurch. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Christchurch?
Christchurch definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Christchurch.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Avis. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
