Car hire recommendations?

by aaronfecowycz Online Now Aug 14, 2007 at 2:05 PM

Hi all, my soon to be wife and I are spending our honeymoon in New Zealand (can't wait!) and we're after some recommendations for car hire companies as we've been reading quite a lot of reports of hidden charges and poor service, so I thought I'd post a request for recommendations and see what other peoples experiences were and hopefully get some good advice. We're looking to hire a car in Rotorua for 7 days and would like to minimise our risk in terms of insurance liability.

Many thanks in advance :)

    We have had several car rentals in New Zealand (Avis, Budget) and never had a problem. The last time (a tip of another VT member) we rented our car from McDonalds Rent-A-Car, a smaller family owned company. They also had great services and friendly staff (www.mcdonaldsrentacar.co.nz)

    happy travels

    The big companies like Avis and Budget are rather expensive. I have not heard any bad things about the company VT suggested. Another affordable option in Rotorua is Rent-a-Dent:
