“Or similar” refers to how our rental providers classify cars. Please be advised they cannot guarantee that a specific car model will be available. Partners categorise similar models into “vehicle groups” and confirm availability on this basis. Our team are available to contact the depot on your behalf where you are picking up your vehicle to enquire what models are available under the vehicle group you booked. Please contact customer support for further information.

How do I pick up a rental car at Christchurch Airport?

Christchurch Airport has one terminal and a selection of on-site car rental brands to select from. See below for clear instructions on how to find Christchurch Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Christchurch Airport terminal

  • International and Domestic Terminal

    Christchurch International Airport has a single terminal that caters to both domestic and international flights.

Pick up instructions

  • Is your rental company desk on-airport or off-airport?

    International and Domestic Terminal

    On- and off-airport
    The on- and off-airport hire car desks are located on the ground floor opposite the international arrivals.
  • Finalise your rental agreement and collect keys

    Once you are at the hire car company desk, you’ll need to finalise your rental agreement and collect your vehicle keys.
  • Head to the designated car park to pick up your car

    International and Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire cars are parked in the car park outside the terminal, approximately a two minute walk from the terminal.
    Off airport
    If you booked with an off-airport provider, you’ll need to catch shuttle transport to the car rental provider’s premises near the airport.
  • What should I do if the desk is unattended?

    Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.

    If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.

    If you still have no luck finding assistance, contact us. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned desks, and rest assured there’s usually someone who can help out in the car park where the rental cars are located.

    We'll be right back

Returning a hire car at Christchurch Airport

  • On-airport

    As you drive to the airport, observe the overhead signs and follow the rental car park signs.

    For after-hours returns, there will be a return slot where you can drop off the key. Park and lock the car, then place the keys in the drop box located in the returns area.

  • Off-airport

    For off-airport rental car returns to Christchurch Airport, where you need to return your hire car to depends on which rental provider your vehicle came from.

    For Apex, off-airport rental cars need to be returned to their Christchurch Airport branch at 28 Ron Guthrey Road. A courtesy shuttle service provided by Apex will take you directly to the designated drop-off point close to the Christchurch Airport terminal.
