Christchurch - Discover New Zealand with a Rental Car

Christchurch is located on the South Island of New Zealand on the East Coast and is a popular starting point for a rental car trip. Due to its architecture, the city is considered the "most English" of all cities on the island.

If you are travelling with your rental car, visit Christchurch Cathedral in the city centre or take a rental car to the old university district "Arts Centre" with its cultural offerings. You should also visit the beautiful botanical garden by rental car.

Rent a Car and discover Christchurch

Guests from Europe travel via Christchurch International Airport, the airport has IATA code CHC and is located 12 km northwest of the city center. Almost 7 million passengers are handled at the international airport every year, putting Christchurch international Airport behind the Auckland Airport and ahead of Wellington Airport.

Due to the completed booking the vehicle waits as ordered at the selected car rental at the airport. After a short transfer with briefing you drive by car towards a varied New Zealand holiday. Find out below which areas you could visit in and around Christchurch by rental car.
