We have some information from some of our suppliers with respect to their Christchurch locations.

HERTZ

Christchurch Airport is open and fully operational. The downtown location in Lichfield St is closed. Any rentals due to be returned to this location must be taken to the airport.

AVIS

Avis is open at Christchurch Airport Domestic Terminal only. For existing reservations we cannot confirm vehicle type – it is transport only at this stage. We are assisting the Emergency Services and providing vehicles to them as a priority. Downtown Locations are closed until further notice, as they are in the cordoned off area of the central city. If you have an existing rental and the drop-off location was Christchurch City – please return the car to our Christchurch Airport location.

BUDGET

EUROPCAR

If you have an existing booking that is picking up from Christchurch Airport, there are no changes to your booking, please proceed as normal. If you were due to pick up a vehicle from 848 Colombo Street, please call 0800 800 115 as this branch is closed for an unspecified period. Our friendly staff will make alternative arrangements for you from a nearby branch at 517 Wairaki Rd Burnside or by delivery.

THRIFTY

Our rental desk at Christchurch Airport is operating as normal as long as the Airport remains open for commercial flights. We are attempting to supply customers with existing bookings with as little inconvenience as possible as well as the vehicle booked. Our levels of supply are being restricted by both the number of vehicles currently inaccessible in central Christchurch City and also vehicles that were to be dropped off in Christchurch being dropped off at our other locations around the South Island.

We will advise any further updates as we receive them.
