Apex Car Rentals

Earn 3 Airpoints Dollars per rental day when booking through Air New Zealand.

Apex offers a wide selection of vehicles at the best price for you. However, a few things to note that are different about Apex:

A variety of older and recent model vehicles - Apex has the biggest fleet of all off-airport car rental companies in New Zealand. That means you can be assured you'll find a car that suits your needs and budget.

No Airport location fees - Unlike other car rental companies, Apex customers don't have to pay pesky Airport fees because Apex isn't located on site at the Airport terminal.

Collecting your Apex rental - Call Apex on arrival for your free (and quick) shuttle ride to collect your car. They'll also drop you back to the terminal when you return your rental. See your booking confirmation email for details.

Apex lets you go places - Traveling between the North and South Island? Apex lets you take your rental car across Cook Strait return, using either the Interislander or Bluebridge ferry services.

A New Zealand success story, Apex Car Rentals developed from small beginnings in Christchurch in 1992 to become the country's largest home-grown car rental company. With more than 25 locations now stretching across New Zealand and Australia, Apex is a deep-value brand offering a wide range of rental vehicles. Taking the time to understand each customer's journey and familiarise them with driving conditions, road rules and the must-see attractions along the way has seen Apex recognised with Canstar Blue's 'Most Satisfied Customers' Award every year since 2014.
