Christchurch Car Rental Reviews

Love how Christchurch is always evolving.
Scott T.
September 15, 2018
Christchurch and the Westcoast are not too busy compared to other parts of the world. Take your time and be polite on NZ roads. Be aware of driving on the left. Indicate in plenty of time. Observe the one land bridge signs. Remember the light does not turn orange before green like in the UK so be ready to go on green.
