Pros: Eli and Yesway was great to deal with. Great communication and easy, no fuss transactions/dealings. Loved the Toyota Hybrid. Great economically, awesome to drive. Would definitely use Yesaway again.
Cons: Nil complaints
Pros: Only the driver who collected us and the economy of the car
Cons: As above, a mess and a long wait at pick up. 2 other couples were waiting. One for more than an hour. They were not happy that their shuttle left without them and we were collected before them. they could not understand what the reception person was saying either.
Pros: Prompt Reliable
Pros: Very good service.
Cons: Awful communication and rude. Back tyres of our car were bald and worn out, we have photos. Car seat which we took off the hire was not installed properly, thank god we had brought our own one with us. An extra $50 to leave the car at the airport with the keys in the car seemed absolutely ridiculous. We had 5 people including an infant and lord of baby luggage yet we were told a van would pick us up and it did not, one of us had to drive the man back to the rental place.
Pros: They pick you up from the airport at your arrival time and liase with you via text which adds that extra reassurance.
Cons: I think the website could use some work. It was scary booking with them as you feel like it’s like a scam. Too many adverts on the booking site and very cluttered UI adds to the scammy feeling. Glad it worked out haha! And it worked out well!

Cons: We dropped car off in Dunedin but picked it up in Queenstown and only given an address and hotel staff assumed we knew where to drop car off. We were told to arrive between a half hour period and the shuttle was arriving as we were parking around the back. driver was a terrible driver and we were packed in like sardines, not a great way to finish as we were a group of 6 would have hoped another option to get us to airport could have been provided as our 1 way rental cost was over $500
