What are the pros and cons of booking a f&e self drive package from Chan Bros? They have a 10D New Zealand South Island Self Drive for $2668, incl air tickets, accomodation and car rental. Was considering as looks cheap..

Pick up yes at FOC. But not too sure on return.

I rent their car too. I'm flying to Christchurch on 27 Dec'12.

Anzed provided free pick up and return to the airport. Good service.

Would like to check how is petrol avalibility there? And anyone knows if we have to pump petrol ourselves or its like in S'pore where someone will help you?

14 days... That's about right, I spent 14 days there years back. Drove around the island, it was great. I still missed out on a lot of places! So have to go back there again, some time...

Petrol is available in all towns, and you have to pump it yourself, if I recall correctly. I was there a few years back, so it's scratchy now. Heck, I did not really have to pump a lot anyway despite driving around the entire island...

GPS will be provided when you rent the car right? haha. anyway, do you all just find accommodation while on your way to a destination or do you book beforehand?
