Why rent a classic car from RentAClassic?

Just because you can…drive something different that is.  We think of ourselves just as much in the ‘experiences’ business than the car rental one. An extraordinarily beautiful region deserves an extraordinary hire car, after all. You could hire an ordinary faceless modern one, shiny and only slightly used no doubt, but where’s the fun in that? On a self drive holiday, your hire car is second only to your accommodation as the place you’ll spend most time in, so chose it well. Our Nelson region is one of the most consistently sunny places in New Zealand, ideal for convertible top down driving on relatively uncrowded roads. And now we offer sports and convertible hire from Christchurch as well, you can easily take the fun right round the whole of the fantastic South Island.

We provide a particularly personal service, taking time to familiarise you with your chosen car, and even deliver it to you. All our cars kept to very high standards, either personally owned by us or partnering individuals. We love hearing our customers share their stories about the squeals of delight from the surprise present, a first date, their memorable wedding photographs, honeymoons, holiday and anniversary road trips, or the many discussions they get into with folk about the cars as they tour. So why not make your driving experience almost as memorable as the stunning land you’ll journey through.
