Long term car hire


I'm having a hard time finding reliable information and pricing on hiring a car from beginning of March to middle of May on the South Island. We'd arrive in Nelson and leave out of Queenstown. The few places I received quotes from seemed very over priced. Any suggestions?

I have hired from Apex in Queenstown and they also have a branch in Nelson


Their prices are usually very good and you can get a range of vehicles from near new to fairly old models

Your problem is the different pick-up/drop-off locations. Most of the cheaper companies only have depots in Chch & Queenstown. Sounds like Apex is one of your best options. Often they are negotiable if you contact them directly, rather than rely on their online booking site.
