Hertz New Zealand is thrilled to announce that it has opened its doors to customers in Christchurch, marking its return to the city, six years after the Canterbury earthquakes. 

Locals and tourists are now able to rent a vehicle from Hertz Christchurch City, which is located in the International Rental Car Precinct. Hertz New Zealand and the wider travel industry are set to celebrate the opening of the location at an invite only official opening on the 14th August.

Hertz New Zealand will be joined by The Minister for Regenerate Christchurch, Nick Wagner, who will officiate the celebrations.

Mark Righton, Country Manager Hertz New Zealand, said: “This day has been a long time coming and it is an enormous step not only for our local community in Christchurch, but for the wider team at Hertz New Zealand.

“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes on our return, and the opening is a testament to the team’s hard work and the efforts of property developer, Craig Nicholas, who invested significantly in the car rental hub to make it a reality.

“The indorsement from Craig Nicholas and support from Regenerate Christchurch demonstrates everyone’s commitment to making Christchurch a vibrant destination which is easy to explore.

“It’s a privilege to be operating back in the city to provide convenient transportation services to locals and international visitors, who contribute to the region’s tourism.”

Earlier this year in May, Hertz launched its online reservations system for Christchurch City bookings. Customers residing in, or travelling through Christchurch, were able to pre-purchase and reserve vehicles and find out more information about the new location.

Grant Pugh, Area Manager Central South Island, said: “We saw a great response following the announcement of our return to Christchurch. Our team here are thrilled to be open for business and welcome customers to experience the range of speciality services that we offer here at Hertz.”

The Hertz Christchurch City store is part of the three-storey International Rental Car Precinct, located on the corner of Kilmore and Manchester Streets. Representing a $10 million investment by Craig Nicholas, the precinct will cater to New Zealand’s self-drive market.

The wheelchair accessible precinct also encompasses an internal two storey car park – providing seamless pick-up and drop-off conveniences to customers.
