Assistance in obtaining a rental car
Apr 2021
I made a last minute decision to take a trip requiring a rental car. I didn't realize it was school holidays and that it would be challenge to get a car. Through the Kaiapoi i-Site I interacted several times with Gwen who went above and beyond to assist me in locating a car. Eventually she was able to obtain a car for me through Smash Palace in Oamaru. The car was easy to collect, in good condition, and friendly staff. I was able to leave my car there secured in the lot for the week which was a huge help. I really valued the assistance from both Gwen and Smash Palace. Thanks to both of them I was able to have an amazing holiday!

Local Information

This is a very convenient place to stop and gain all the local information you want for around the Waimakariri area. Ladies are very helpful and if they don't know, they will ring around to find what you are needing.

I-site Kaiapoi Center, Kaiapoi, NZ
Feb 2019 • Couples
My wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to travel to Kaiapoi, New Zealand in February. Our trip was certainly one of the most wonderful travel experiences we have ever had. One of the highlights was being able to meet Gwen Creek the I-site manger at Kaiapoi. She was exceedingly helpful in planning a good portion of our trip through February-March and deserves the credit for guiding us to spots we probably would have never seen. From transportation to lodging and sites to visit she arranged it all. Extremely knowledgeable, helpful and a very pleasant woman. It was a pleasure to have met her.
I would highly recommend using the I-Site visitor information centers and in particularly Gwen if you are so fortunate as to be able to travel to New Zealand. Kaiapoi is a wonderful little town with many nice restaurants and shops and a friendly and peaceful vibe. We look forward to our return.
Thank you Gwen!

Wonderful help and advice
Mar 2018 • Couples
The Kaiapoi i-SITE team gave us excellent help and advice to make our tour of South Island and then later the Far North so fantastic. We were based in Kaiapoi, but were travelling round as much of New Zealand as we could independently, but looking back it is hard to imagine how we could have done so much without them. They listened to what we wanted and on each visit, a few hours later we left the office, with an itinerary, coaches and accommodation booked and even an overnight cruise on Milford Sound which we would never have known about had it not been for them. We had wonderful value for money, as they knew all the good places to stay, often with special extras, which suited our needs and budget. Nothing was too much trouble or took too long and we can only say a BIG Thank you to Glenna and Gwen for all their help. There's a great coffee shop in the building too, to look over all the plans with a scone and flat white !!

Gwen Creek and the staff are the friendliest people we've meet. Full of great suggestions on places to visit and see.
We also had to catchup on some legal business back home in au. The staff were fantastic and couldn't be more helpful.
5 stars isn't enough!
Thank you again :)

Many thanks to Gwen for her excellent advice on our first day in the South Island. We didn't know which direction to head, and Gwen helped us develop a wonderful itinerary for our 2 week campervan holiday. We covered some amazing places and loved the scenery. A very special holiday thanks to the great advice we received.
