I tried Mates Rates after reading some positive reviews. Was not disappointed! You can spend a lot of time searching for a rental car, but found the best deal there

Easy, I had no problems at all. Prices seemed to be ok. I didn't check others. Definitely recommend.

Very easy to use. Really good specials for a run around car. Would recommend.

Easy to compare the different rental companies in one place. Lots of choice which is great. Prices seemed cheaper than other sites including when I looked at booking direct

Second time I’ve used MateRates. Always a good deal.

Great value! I'll be telling my friends.

John W - Australia

Glad I found your site – we left things to the last minute and couldn’t get a car at a price that made sense. Problem solved!

Greg H - New Zealand

We left everything to the last minute and were having trouble finding a car. Then we found your site and got a car in Queenstown at a decent rate. Will tell our friends!

Fiona W - New Zealand

Easy and efficient. Competitive prices with good choices. Worth a try.

Tom H - England

Good comparison site. Saves time.

William S - New Zealand

We booked ahead from Germany. Prices very reasonable, and a good choice of cars. Saved us time and money — would use again.

Andreas B - Germany

Thanks for making things easy. Found a 4WD for much less than we had seen on other sites, and booked it — no worries.
