FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Christchurch Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Christchurch

Christchurch Airport, New Zealand’s first international airport, is the largest and busiest on the south island, with limited flights to a number of destinations in the Asia-Pacific region. The second busiest airport in the country serving over 5.5 million passengers a year, it is the first airport in the Southern Hemisphere to achieve carbon neutrality and only one of two airports, next to Auckland, that can accommodate large commercial aircraft such as the Airbus A380. HAPPYCAR offers various attractive options for a Christchurch airport car hire so that wherever you decide to go, your stay in New Zealand is stress-free from day one. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific vacation needs. We give you the options to choose your car size, the pick up location and the type of insurance. There are so many possibilities for a car when you book now through the comparison portal.

The airport was first founded in 1946 with a small terminal and a modest complement of hangers. Since then a number of extensions and improvements have been continuously developed, particularly on the runways that must accommodate a number of harsh crosswinds. An international wing was added in 1966 and recently a substantial redevelopment project has begun, that will greatly expand all areas of the airport. In the middle of 2013 a brand new terminal was opened for domestic and international travelers, and is already serving the community well. There is also a large general aviation presence with rescue services and helicopter operations fairly popular, and there is also an International Antarctic Center nearby to the airport that works with the airport to provide a number of Antarctic expeditions for scientific research.

The outstanding location of the airport, located just 12 kilometers north of downtown Christchurch, means that you can immediately take advantage of the excellent road network with a car rental Christchurch airport and through into New Zealand, a sparsely-populated country of stunningly diverse natural beauty and a popular tourist hit. Christchurch is perhaps the most English of all New Zealand cities, with rolling green hills and a relaxed air, and although it has suffered at the hands of the largest natural disaster in recent memory it is innovating at an unrivaled pace, rebuilding itself into a modern entrepreneurial hub. You can also easily access roads that lead into the rest of New Zealand and on to all the major cities in the area, such as Wellington, and Auckland at the tip of the north island, with a speed, convenience and personal freedom that public transportation just can’t beat. There is so much to see in this part of the world, and a car hire Christchurch airport can make this journey a reality. Book with HAPPYCAR now and make your New Zealand dreams become a reality!
