Electric car sharing

Zilch offers zero emission cars by the hour or by the day. With hubs at Christchurch Airport and six more located around the city, Zilch provides a great, emission-free way to get around.


You can book a Zilch electric car for the duration of your stay in Christchurch, or simply use one to get between the airport and the city centre.

You can also book and drive Zilch electric cars from any of the other six hubs around the city during your time in Christchurch.

How does it work?

  1. Sign-up on the Zilch website. If you're over 21 years with a full valid licence Zilch will post you a Zilch card - this is your key to drive Zilch cars.
  2. Book via the Zilch website or on the Zilch app. You can book by the hour or by the day.
  3. Head to the Christchurch Airport Zilch hub and unlock your car with your Zilch card by taping the card reader in the front windscreen.
  4. Drop your car to the Zilch destination hub you picked at the time of booking. 

To view rates, locations and find out more, please visit the Zilch website.
