Our Ezi Car Rental Christchurch Airport branch is located inside the Christchurch International Airport terminal building and just a couple of minutes away from New Zealand’s main highway heading, connecting you north and south. Our branch is located right next to the baggage claim area, so you can grab your bags, collect your hire car and be on your way within minutes. The sooner you are on your way with one of our car rentals, the more you will be able to enjoy Christchurch and the activities that the wider Canterbury region has to offer.
Please carefully read our collection information to prepare for your upcoming trip.
Already in Christchurch? We have a second conveniently branch located right in the heart of Christchurch city centre. See our Christchurch City branch for more details.
We are proud to offer you a wide range of vehicles at our Christchurch Airport location. At Ezi, value doesn’t mean compromise. As one of the largest car rental operators in Aotearoa New Zealand with a fleet of predominantly brand new vehicles, you can be confident you are in safe hands. We have everything from compact rental cars – great for use around urban areas, right through to SUV’s, 4WD’s and Utes for those needing more space and to seat families and larger groups.
If you’re visiting the Canterbury ski fields, don’t forget to talk to us about hiring snow chains for your rental car. We’ve also got ski racks for hire to help transport all the gear you’ll need for the mountain. We recommend you to book these additional items at the time of booking your rental car as these can get booked up quickly!
Families, please remember that safety comes first! We have baby and booster seats available to hire. We recommend you to pre-book them, either by calling our customer service team on +64 9 254 4397, 0800 545 000 or by adding them directly to your booking while using our very simple online booking system.
Pick Up Information
Our Christchurch Airport kiosk is conveniently located inside the Christchurch Airport terminal building, right next to the baggage claim area on the ground floor.

If you are unable to locate our branch please phone +64 9 254 4397 or 0800 545 000 for directions from our staff.

In order to pick up your vehicle in no time, please remember that all drivers must have a current full drivers licence at all times. If your licence is not in English, you must carry an official English translation or International Driver Permit (IDP) together with your original licence. Please be aware that most European licences don’t have their description fields in English and won’t be accepted without a translation document.
Please make sure you have a valid credit card or visa debit card is needed to hire with us as a bond is required on all hires. We will need to take an imprint of your card details at the time of pick up for the bond security. The applicable excess amount for your hire will be held as an authorisation on your card as security, and released at the end of your hire. We do not accept cash for the bond.
If you have arranged to make your own way to our depot, you will find the depot address in your travel documents or on your branch locations page.
