Here’s what some of our clients have to say

Finally, it’s easy for us to say how great our service is but without proof we’d just be just like those other companies that promise everything under the sun and then fail to deliver.

So here’s what some of our clients have to say about us:

Hi Bob and Dawn,

Thanks for all your kind Assistance with our recent car rental!! We have already recommended your company to several people we know that plan vacation in the southern part of New Zealand!

The personal reception at the airport and your emphasis and dedication kick started the good feeling and our expectations towards a super holiday in your beautiful country…you are the true ambassadors for your country and for tourism in general.

No need to say that the rental car and the safety equipment from your company were in mint condition! As we are used to rent from larger companies, we have learned to appreciate when the car received is as agreed and nice and clean…if just all car rental companies were like Get Away Car Hire!

All the best and hope to come back soon.”

Dear Dawn and Bob,

Hello, Nerida Hope-Johnstone here, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank your for your great service.

Not only did the car exceed my expectations but you and your husband’s warm friendly welcome made a wonderful lasting impression of New Zealand hospitality that was especially poignant after my long day’s travel.

I will happily recommend your Hire Car services to anyone travelling to New Zealand. And I will certainly use your services whenever I return to the South Island.

All the Best


“Hi Dawn,

Thanks for everything. The car went well. I must comment on just how well the car was presented and in its general exceptionally good condition.

I will have no hesitation in hiring from you again and I will recommend you to anyone else I know who is looking to rent a car from Dunedin.


Bill Tutty.

Thank you Dawn,

Everything went really well. It was great to have our own transport to get around to see all the sights. We had an action packed few days. The car was perfect for our needs, in fact much better than we thought.

Thank you again for your friendly, hassle free service. It was great to be met at the airport and be able to just drop the car off again, without any hassles.

I have already been recommending you to others and will be in touch when I need you again.”

Lynda (& Ella) Tomlins.

We look forward to hearing about your experience and adding you to our list of regular clients.
