Bargain Car Rentals = scammers!
I rented a car for 3 days from 9 in the morning of the first day to 20 of the second.
I changed plans and called them asking if it was ok to bring back the car at 5 am of the third day (that I paid in full).
They said no problem because they work on a 24h basis.
In the night ot the 2nd day , they charged me 36000$ and threaten to report me for car theft, than, after I brought back the car within the 3 days I paid, they charged me 75$ for late restitution.
DON'T RENT A CAR FROM THESE SCAMMERS

Interesting experience. Would not recommend this rental car at all. REASON is that we hired a people mover, we had not taken insurance so paid 76.00 when we picked it up. I have tried to locate where I can contact the insurance person but keep getting told I Never took it out. Yet the money is on the invoice we received as being taken out of our account.
We also accidentally took the van keys home to blenheim from Auckland. On landing I went straight to the post office and had contacted the company ( Namisha) who was very pleasant and told me what to do and sent a photo once it was sorted. It was to be in Auckland over night which it was. BUT 4 days later we received a call from highace-Bargain-Admin saying that 401.25 was being taken out of our account for the towing of the vehicle and the new set of keys which they required as the car was parked in a place where they could not get passed. THIS was totally wrong as the car was not in the way of any vehicle. The lady that spoke to us was going to get her overall boss to phone. THIS has not happened and no matter how many times we call they just cut us off. This company is absolutely not worth dealing with and would not recommend them to anyone

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.
I was given a 15 year old car with dodgy tyres.
If you use your card beware. They will find any unsubstantiated excuse to continue to take money from your account. I have had to cancel my card.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
I'm upset I have to give them a 1 rating.

We were from overseas, and rented with them, both in South (Christchurch) and North (Auckland) Islands. The emphasis is "bargain", and they were the cheapest we found (based on the type of cars we wanted). So you will get an older car (well we did), with faded paint and loads of dinks in the bodywork. The mileage was high (150k km and 170k km). The cars are secondhand Japanese imports. However, do not be put off. Both cars were very clean (yes the seating was well worn - but clean). The engines had been well serviced and as such did not miss a beat on our 4 weeks of rental with these guys. A well serviced and looked after car will last for ages, and we did a lot of mileage on both islands. We had 2 minor issues. Neither car had a radio with a jack or any other input, so we could not play any music from our phones. The car on South Island had a wizzy Clarion system (with satnav no less), BUT it was all in Japanese, including the voice which no matter what we did, we could not switch off for 7 days! - my Japanese improved no end! Also the drop off point in Auckland was not clear, so we ended up at their depot (the address provided) not the airport drop off. We had loads of time and their staff were super helpful. So if you want a new car, don't use BRC. If you want a keen price, a safe and reliable car with good staff, then go for it, BRC were great. We booked way ahead BTW, so cannot comment on last minute rentals

Made an online booking on the Bargain Rental Cars website the day before, received confirmation email of my booking. Arrived to pick up car in Christchurch, staff were unaware of my booking, eventually they found it and I was rudely informed that they had cancelled my booking. The manager said "didn't you receive an email saying we had cancelled your booking?" , I had received no email and no phone call to inform me of this. Staff didn't even attempt to find me another vehicle not even a sorry. So after a $30 taxi ride all for nothing , I was left highly unsatisfied.

Do not hire from these cowboys. I hired from the Wellington branch recently. On giving my booking reference I was told "it only says pick up at 12.30pm" to which I responded "yes? It's 12.20pm?" No response. The guy continues to tap away at the computer. "Is everything ok?" I ask, no response. Finally I am told "the car we booked for you is in maintenance. We have another in our car lot in Shelley Bay (across town). We will drop you off there. Is that ok?" ... well i guess it has to be! I found it hard to believe no one realised this sooner and driven it over themselves (not like it was busy, we were the only people there and they had two staff on), or even bothered to call and tell me this was the case and to come earlier if i wanted to leave on timw. About an hour later we finally got to the car and were on our way. I received no apology for the muck up, and they did absolutely nothing to make it right. I even complained to them through their online contact form and haven't received a response.

our visitors used bargain rental cars DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY they arrived at auckland airport after the office had closed and was handed the keys by a lady sitting at a desk next door . The car was not the model they had booked but that was not much of a problem the problem was the car was not road worthy faulty brakes steering out of alignment and a half bald tyre car was full of old subway wrappers when they told the lady who had given them the keys she said come back tomorrow so they had to stay in a hotel they couldnt change the car untill 1130 the next so to cut a long story short they were going to tour the south island but were only in nz for a week only got as far as wellington when they asked if they could return the car to wellington because of the delay in auckland the were charged $400. i have lived in nz for 12 years and never seen such bad customer service. DO NOT USE THIS APPALLING COMPANY
