Car Rental in Akaroa

Arriving into Akaroa on a cruise ship? Why not skip the tour buses and hire a car instead? It is both an economical and convenient way to get around – explore Akaroa and the surrounding area, or take a drive to Christchurch and enjoy the scenery in our picturesque Canterbury region.

  • Direct cruise ship (wharf area) pick up and drop off.
  • All daily rates include GST and insurance (excess can be reduced for an extra cost)
  • Unlimited kilometres included in the daily rates.
  • 24-hour AA Roadside Assistance cover.
  • Extras (GPS, child seats) also available upon request.
