Our NZ rental car fleet consists of vehicles between one and ten years old depending on the car hire category, all are fully maintained to the highest standard and receive a full valet and rigorous 40+ point safety check before each car rental.
In the unlikely event of a breakdown while you are driving around New Zealand all our hire cars are covered by the AA’s 24 hr Roadservice.
Our rental vehicles are completely un-branded, which means that whether you are a visitor or a local, travelling NZ for business or pleasure, your car will not easily be identified as a rental car, which many of our customers prefer for security reasons.
With the exception of Christmas Day, our staff are on hand 7 days a week, during office hours, at rental locations throughout NZ to assist you should you have any queries. For the purposes of rental car pick ups or drop offs we have after hours arrangements in place that also apply to Christmas Day.
We have been renting cars in New Zealand to holiday makers and business travellers from around the globe for over 20 years and estimate that we have satisfied the rental car requirements of over 300,000 customers in this time. You’ll find plenty of independent reviews on google, facebook and rankers.
We provide you with a 500+page NZ travel guide and road atlas, but are also only too happy to assist with driving directions or GPS rental to ensure your journey is stress free and enjoyable.
Some companies charge you for every kilometre that you travel in your New Zealand rental car, but at Omega all our rates are based on unlimited kilometres, giving you the freedom to relax and explore New Zealand without unnecessary constraints.
Our free talking travel app will help you find all the best things to see and do around New Zealand. Once downloaded you can even use the App without going online, and the auto play function means it will alert you as your car is approaching a place of interest.

My wife and I decided to drive through the North and South New Zealand islands. We went with Omega due to its reasonable price and reviews. The car we choose was slightly older but that didn't matter since most of the cars we encountered in NZ were of similar age anyways. The deep tire threads show that the tires were pretty new, and the vehicle was kept in good shape (brakes/engine oil). Omega also provided dropoff at Wellington so we can pick up our car across the strait at Picton. Some of the pickup/dropoff depots were not directly on Airport grounds but that's fine since there was shuttle services that followed closely to our pre-defined pickup/dropoff times even during off hours. There was no hassle during our pickup of the vehicles. Just be sure to state the exact time you want pick up your car during off hours. Overall a very pleasant experience and we would definately use Omega again. (Eddy Lee, Canada)
I've been happily renting vehicles from Omega a few times each year since 2007. Usually it's just for running about town but recently I rented a car for a longer trip around the South Island. The car was great and the trip trouble free. I've always enjoyed great service from the team at the downtown Christchurch depot and the cars are always just right for the job at hand. (Andrew A)
