National Car Rentals in Christchurch : All you need to know

There is no better way to see everything Christchurch has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your National rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride enables you to go to the places you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to New Zealand even more enjoyable with a National car rental.

Why drive with CarRentals.com?

With everything to do and see in and around the Christchurch region, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your trip. Whether you are hoping to have dinner at the bistro that has received great reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own set of wheels to see as much as you can during your visit. Whatever you end up doing in Christchurch, if you wish to get the most from your trip, having your vehicle is a must.

Originally founded by 24 independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 international locations. National offers everything compact to luxury cars, allowing you to pick the best vehicle for your getaway.

What you need to know before you go

How do I get a Christchurch National car rental at a great rate?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Christchurch?

Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Christchurch's minimum age to rent a car?

National's minimum age to rent a car in Christchurch is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Christchurch?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Christchurch. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Christchurch trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Christchurch. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I drive 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 National?

National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.

Reserve your ride today!

With so much to do and see in Christchurch, having access to a car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of New Zealand, you can go when you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.

Before your next holiday, book your National Christchurch rental car and visit all the must-do activities at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and cruise the open road in Christchurch, New Zealand.
