Don’t despair we still have some cars available in our enlarged fleet. There is good availability in the intermediate group – great Toyota Corollas. We also offer “premium plus” in the intermediate group which is 10% more than premium and you will get a brand new 2015 Tivoli sport car! Book one – they’re great!

We’re easy to find

Christchurch – We are situated close to Bush Inn Shopping Mall at Church Corner and opposite the University Halls of Residence on Homestead Lane. The green, Obiter Bus, stops right outside our office.


Queenstown – If you need to drop the car to our car park, it is less than five minutes from Queenstown Airport in Frankton and under 15 minutes from Queenstown city itself.  Pick ups and drop offs are easy from the road also, being just off the State Highway on the left as you approach Frankton and Queenstown - just before the Event Centre. Address 127 Glenda Drive, Frankton.
