Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at Christchurch Airport! Then head to the city, park outside the center, and go on a leisurely walk to appreciate the local atmosphere and architecture. Check out the art galleries, the Christchurch Arts Center, and the Canterbury Museum. Visit the International Antarctica Center to learn more about the fascinating continent that’s so close to New Zealand.
Drive to the nearby Orana Wildlife Park, New Zealand’s only open range zoo, and the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve where you’ll encounter lemurs, kiwis, iguanas, kakas, and other wildlife. Drive the beautiful Summit Road through Port Hills, and, if you’re up for a more thrilling adventure, go on a volcanic and geothermal tour.
Christchurch is a great place to visit, but the surrounding area has even more to offer, so why not get a longer term car rental? You can head to the southernmost part of the South Island, which is closest to Antarctica, explore the Southern Alps, or drive all the way to Picton to take the Interislander ferry to Wellington on the North Island. You can even pick up your rental car at Christchurch Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your vacation now!
