From pre-booking to pick up and drop off Far North Rentals was superb We had a group of 7 but at short notice FNR were able to accommodate even though the people mover was in high demand. Customer focussed service was outstanding very rare anywhere these days. I would have no hesitation using their services again next time we are in the region. Thank you Far North Rentals.

We hired a Toyota Corolla for a week during our stay in Paihia. The car was great and the customer service from Far North Rentals was excellent. We decided to hire the car for an extra day and it wasn’t a problem. All sorted with a quick phone call. The guys were super friendly and nothing was a problem. Highly recommend and we would hire a car with them again.

Really friendly and welcoming staff – always refreshing than dealing with those large, chain retailers. The car was excellent and did the job for us, well priced for our trip. Would recommend to anyone 🙂

Service and communication were simple and effective. So nice to hire a car and not be subject to the Spanish Inquisition! Will use Far North again.
