Snow chains can be an absolute essential when traveling in New Zealand during the winter months. The mountain roads can be affected by snowfall, so it’s best to always carry chains and know how to use them. Snow chains are only available from our South Island branches (Queenstown, Christchurch and Dunedin).
Many of the NZ ski fields have unsealed or steep, snow-covered access roads so our range of 4-wheel drives, SUVs and utes are ideal for these conditions. Recommended vehicles are our Toyota Highlanders, Toyota RAV4 AWDs, Toyota Hilux Utes or Toyota Prados, however you can rent and use snow chains on all our Ezi Car Rental vehicles.
This video from Cardrona Alpine Resort shows you how to fit them.

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.

5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.Ricky X
