Why Omega

Excellent value and service

I have used omega at Christchurch Airport many times and have always found them to be very reliable. Vehicles are as booked or better, service is friendly and competent, and the insurance waiver price is very competitive unlike some firms where the waiver can exceed the hiring fee.

Great service, quick and easy pick up

Have been using Omega rental cars for the last few years each time I go back to NZ I go through the Christchurch branch by the airport. They are so easy to go through, staff are always friendly and helpful. I have had to request changes at the last minute which have never been a problem for them to do for me. Cars are always in good condition as well and reasonable price compared to some of the other places. Read more >>>

Superior service and reliable vehicles

I rented a car for 10 days for a round the South island trip. Completed 2,500 km. Stopped off in Christchurch Airport office to get wipers checked and they replaced them on the spot. I have always found the customer service to be exceptional.  Rod Auton Read more>
