Australian-based Atlas Car Rental and New Zealand-based Omega Rental Cars have signed an affiliate agreement to work in co-operation.

Working together, the two companies will be able to offer rental services for both leisure and corporate markets at 20 locations across Australia and New Zealand.

Atlas Australia has expanded to eight corporate-owned locations and two licensee locations. Operating in Australia for 25 years, it has seen considerable growth in the last three years, according to the company.

“It is exciting times for Atlas, launching our first international footprint and affiliate program with Omega Rental Cars,” said Scott Atkins, general manager of Atlas. “Our steady growth has certainly made us one of Australia’s largest independent family-owned rental businesses, and we are excited to be able to team up with another independent business in New Zealand who are market leaders in their own right.”

Omega Rental Cars has been renting cars in New Zealand since 1992. The company has city and airport branches in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown, along with depots serving the Picton Ferry Terminal and Nelson Airport.

“We are looking forward to working with Atlas Car & Truck Rental, being able to provide our New Zealand clientele the opportunity to hire from a trusted Australian car rental company is a natural extension of our business,” said Simon Sceats, CEO of Omega Rental Cars. “We are also excited to be able to offer our services to Atlas clients when they are here in NZ. It seems both sides of the Tasman have come so close together over the past few years with the rapid expansion of flights on offer between the destinations of Australia & New Zealand; it just makes total sense to have this affiliation.”

    TERRIBLE! Sydney Branch Hopeless and don't care!!
    Lazy horrible staff, beginning with wrong car available, overcharging $102, 95 minutes sorting out on arrival. Finally I needed to pay and re organise a new rental with Atlas. 2 days later, coming back to Mascot, I called to advised I will be 15 minutes late, 4.45. Asked them to wait, and required shuttle (part of hire service) to airport to catch a 6:40pm flight. Got there at 5.13pm due to 20 min holdup in tunnel traffic, all the staff had left at 5:05pm Couldn't care less. Now they charged $47 fees. DO NOT HIRE WITH THIS CROWD!!!!!
