LOCAL ACTIVITIES

Rent a Dent Auckland City was absolutely fantastic to rent a car from. They were friendly, honest, factual and helpful at every turn. Ephraim and his team even  allowed us to change vehicle at no extra charge, as well as help us understand the confusing toll system of New Zealand. We warmly recommend them to anyone.
