There's a crapload of bus companies that do the trip... so you'd be able to find one somewhere that isn't ridiculous..
But I'd recommend hiring a car.. coz it's a pretty awesome trip.. but if you aren't comfortable driving in icy/windy roads maybe not.. (Although my bfs brother from aus did it last year during winter and he'd never even seen snow up until then and he was fine..)
They went with this company Car Rental New Zealand | Jucy Bunch of Cars
and they seem to be very popular..
