Why Choose RentAClassic?


Some say our rental cars aren’t new, and might be unreliable;

some say they’re too indulgent, impractical, too different for a rental car…

…all we know is, what our customers say…..

Highly recommend Stephen and the cars. It absolutely made the holiday for us bringing nothing but smiles. Can’t wait for next time.

NZ roads must surely be the best kept secret in the motoring world.

“Car was as advertised, ran flawlessly. Great check in procedure. New Zealand doesn’t have a straight road. Shifting with the TripTronic paddles was a blast.”

Fantastic experience – the only difficulty was handing the keys back!

Well, if you want a bit of fun touring around don’t hire a standard car, try a classic.

…made our trip so much more memorable, the car was a dream to drive

She looked and drove beautifully and was 100% reliable.

We had an awesome day….. my husband just loved it !!!! And so did I !!!!

Girls roadie to Brunner. Fabulous weather, fab cars, hood down both ways, fur coats perfect! Loved it!

The car is in beautiful condition…Stephen gave an excellent briefing then I was away on heaven’s roads.…I had forgotten just how delightful these cars are – just brilliant. Highly recommended – thanks Stephen!

Simply the perfect old little beast for the mountain roads of NZ! Really the perfect setup for our last day in this beautiful country!

We had a fantastic experience. The car was awesome and I can only recommend anyone who likes this kind of flashback to use them. My dream car, always will be.

…had 3 days of joy and pleasure! She ran like a dream and took me back to the 70’s and the days of my own Alfa and real cars and driving. What a way to explore and experience this amazing country….we will be back!


See the wonderful South Island in a beautiful car. What an absolute joy! We’ll be back.” ‘There’s no sensation to compare with this. Suspended animation, a state of bliss.’ (circa Pink Floyd 1996).


What a brilliant drive – just one day of typical downpour over Arthurs Pass, (stayed totally dry!). Exceeded my high expectations – only way to see the South Island. Return after 25 years – still empty, curving, beautiful roads….


A wonderful 2 week trip around the South Island – the car was a joy – perfect for the open roads of NZ! Mountains were higher, valleys deeper, skies bluer – all because of the wonderful Saab convertible. Stephen was fantastic to deal with – kind and thoughtful!

This little car made our week! Touring wine country with the top down and just eating up the mountain roads – excellent fun! Thanks Stephen for your help.


What a fantastic car for our South Island Road Trip! It has made the long drives more fun and being able to drive some of the coastal roads with the top down will be an unforgettable experience.

A true gent a master GT what a great way to see the country, thank you. We had an awesome trip and the jag was amazing a true GT. I can’t recommend your service more highly.

Great weekend away to celebrate our engagement. Not sure if she said yes because of the ring or the car….We will be back.
