    OK here's my two cents worth. I thoroughly recommend this company: www.mcdonaldsrentacar.co.nz They are a family owned and local company in Christchurch who know the market very well. There are cheaper deals however from my own experience and people I know, they can go bad. Some cars are not really in the best of condition etc. And when it comes to retrieval when something goes wrong, the cheaper companies fall down. I recommend for the South Island, that you need reliability and MacDonalds cars are superb. My last trip I travelled alone and some of the Sth Island can be very remote and you wouldn't want to break down. You can find more companies on this site if you click on Transport > Transport options to find good info: www.newzealand.com There are also good route maps there with examples of trips for differing periods of time, eg 3 days, 6 days etc. Hope you have a good trip. kiwi.
