"I have worked in the Film Industry for close to 25 years in various departments.  I have spent the last 5 years specialising in the Transport Department on various Feature Films and TV Series.

During this period we have used a wide range of vendors for all sorts of vehicle requirements. We have recently discovered Ezi Car Rental as a supplier for crew self-drives. They offer an excellent service. Every request has been met no matter how last minute it has been, no booking has ever been forgotten or incorrect.  The Ezi Car Rental team have been a pleasure to work with. I consider them very professional. Their attention to detail has been outstanding. We consider confidentiality of utmost importance in our industry and have found Ezi very reliable in this regard.

The vehicles provided have all been of a very high standard.  Over the years I have received large amounts of complaints of vehicles supplied from other companies such as: dirty, smells, old, bald tyres, un-serviced, unsafe, out of RUCs etc.  I am yet to receive a complaint about any Ezi Car Rental vehicle. With the amount of vehicles I have hired from them this is a true testament in its itself to quality of vehicle and service they provide.

I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest, reliable company to make multiple large amounts of bookings with. I currently have the majority of my crew driving Ezi Car Rentals and hope to use them on any future Productions".

  • Do I have to rent snow chains in Winter?

    Snow chains can be an absolute essential when traveling in New Zealand during the winter months. As a result of motor vehicles being caught without chains in sudden snowfalls over winter in the Queenstown Lakes District and Milford Sound, a bylaw has been introduced.

    The bylaw states, "At the direction of an enforcement officer or authorised officer, the driver of any vehicle may be required to fit snow chains to such vehicle on any road, and no person shall drive, or direct or allow such vehicle to be driven without such snow chains fitted."

    Please be aware of this bylaw if you are going to be travelling in these areas during the winter period.

    Non-compliance will result in a $150 fine for Queenstown Lakes District and $750 for Milford Sound.

    Snow chains can be added for as little as $10 a day, up to a maximum of $40 per hire.

  • How to fit snow chains the easy way

    This video from Cardrona Alpine Resort shows you how to fit them:

  • Are there any roads I cannot drive on?

    You can drive Ezi Car Rental cars on any road except:

    • Tasman Valley Road - also known as the Ball Hut access road (Aoraki/Mt Cook)
    • Skippers Canyon Road (Queenstown)
    • Ninety Mile Beach (Northland)
    • Any roads north of Colville on the Coromandel Peninsula

    These roads are not part of normal touring routes and you will not be insured if you drive on these roads, or drive on any beaches or take part in any off road driving at any time during your hire.


It was the first time for us visiting New Zealand and using Ezi. The rental in Christchurch is perfect yet competitively priced as compared to other major rentals located inside the terminal building. I have no complaint. Smooth pick up and drop off process.
