Our Luxury Fleet

  • As a company we have been hiring vehicles off and on for several years now, often several vehicles and at short notice.

    The service we have received from start to finish has always been friendly, superb and highly competitive with brand new quality cars.

    Initially we hired elsewhere but because of indifferent service with poor quality vehicles we researched the market and found Touchdown; they have been a total blessing from start to finish which makes our job so much more fulfilling.

  • These guys are awesome, I can’t speak highly enough of their service, pricing or the overall experience that I had with Touchdown. Christchurch was sold out of rental cars because of the cricket world cup, but they looked after me and found me a vehicle with very little notice… and it was a top of the line model, for an amazing price. I had a bit of an issue during my time in Christchurch, and the Touchdown team were superb. They looked after me throughout and were very helpful and caring.

    If you are looking for awesome service when hiring a great quality, very clean and very affordable vehicle, you should call these guys to come and pick you up from the airport (free). You will be very pleased that you skipped the queues of the major rental car companies at the airport! I’d score them 11 out of 10 if I could.

  • Touchdown car rentals are by far the best Car Rental car company in Christchurch

    - Rupert, New Zealand,

  • I would highly recommend using Touchdown Car Rentals. Their service was outstanding and their cars are in very good condition, all new, very reliable and at a great price. I wouldn’t go anywhere else ever again.

    - Laura, Australia,

  • The vehicle was spotless, very comfortable and roomy. When we called back into Christchurch part way through it was re-valeted. That’s what I call service!

    - Logan, Australia,

  • Definitely my choice of rental cars whenever I’m in Christchurch. Great service & handy to airport with free shuttle. . . .

On the Road this spring? Here’s a few tips

As winter takes a back seat and we move further into spring it’s a great time to go on a road trip – especially in the South Island. The sight of lambs and calves lining roadside paddocks, flowers and trees blooming with the snow-capped peaks of the alps in the distance are unique to this part of New Zealand, if not the world.
