Location information for Christchurch


Christchurch is the largest city on the South Island of New Zealand. It's the oldest city of the country. Christchurch became a 'city' by Royal Charter, on 31 July 1856. It's also called 'the most English city outside of England'. Apart from the many gothic buildings Christchurch consists of parks, public gardens or recreation parks. The city is therefore also called the Garden City of New Zealand.


The city has 380,000 inhabitants.


Christchurch is located on the east coast of the South Island, near the estuary of the Avon, which transverses the city. The river banks have been transformed into a public park.


Trading and processing of products from the surrounding agricultural area has long been a basis for Christchurch' economy. It concerns mainly dairy, meat and wool. Tourism but also international education plays an increasing role: a growing number of Asian students attend one of the educational institutes in Christchurch. Electronics and software development are also important for local economy.


Christchurch International Airport is situated just outside the city and is easily reachable by rental car. Memorial Avenue runs straight from the center of Christchurch to the airport.

Public Transport

Christchurch has good public transport. From the central bus station at the corner of Colombo Street and Lichfield Street busses go to all parts of the city as well as to destinations further out such as the beaches of Summer and New Brighton. During weekends however service is limited. There is also a free bus service (the yellow Shuttle) in the city center. The historic Christchurch Tramway was recently brought back into use, also only for destinations within the city center.

Traffic and Parking

It's not difficult to find your way around in Christchurch: the city has a regular street pattern. Some streets are one way streets. You need to pay for street parking. You can do so with coins, your credit card, or your mobile phone.


Christchurch has a large supply of accommodation. From backpacker hostels to guesthouses, lodges and motels, but also some luxury hotels. In general you don't need to book your hotel room long time in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
