What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Christchurch Payless car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in Christchurch?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Christchurch?
Payless's minimum age to rent a car in Christchurch is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Payless's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Payless rental car should I get for my trip to Christchurch?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Christchurch. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Christchurch vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class 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 American Express or MasterCard, offer 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. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Payless require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Payless requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Payless will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Christchurch. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Payless car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Payless. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Christchurch definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Christchurch.
Does Payless offer one-way rentals in Christchurch?
Payless offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Payless. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
