Car Hire in Christchurch


I would like to hire a car for a day in Christchurch to drive down to kaikoura and back.

What is the usual rate and do we need to book it well in advance ?

I was planning to hire it the day i come to christchurch itself. Please let me know if thats fine ?

Depends what kind of car you needed. Rates can be from $70 per day to $200. Try Affinity Car Rental in Christchurch who have "Fun" Cars for $99 such as convertable beetles etc. Europcar and Avis are also very good. It is advisiable to book in advance definitely.

Tarvelpangs, just so you get your bearings, you'll be driving UP to Kaikoura.
