Our NZ rental car fleet consists of vehicles
between one and fourteen 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, 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.
Omega’s collision damage waiver reduces your excess down to nil, providing peace of mind for drivers 21 years+ at one of the cheapest rates in the NZ car rental industry.

Peter at the Airport depot in Tahuna Nelson ( on duty Sat/Sun 2/3 May) was exceptional with the service he provided. Very prompt on picking up and dropping off. Keep him on – we need more like him that are personable and experienced.
Regards – David Ensor
Prompt, friendly service. Excellent rates. We received an automatic as requested. After we returned the car to the depot, we were driven back to the airport in the same car, which saved us one baggage-unload-and-reload. Read more >
