Thank you again for the second time this year. You delivered to my wife a spotlessly clean and detailed vehicle, the service was prompt and the vehicle delivered with a smile and local service. I will certainly recommend your vehicles to our friends, regards

Thank you once again for the excellent service I received from you and your staff. It was truly SERVICE EXCELLENCE. Kind regards Franco

Your rental vehicle was brilliant for the whole of our amazing holiday - thank you very much for supplying a motor of great reliability and hassle-free. We were all very comfortable and it cruised along smoothly at 100kmph. Returned to Christchurch on schedule. Many thanks and hopefully we will return another day to you beautiful country.

An Important Update re COVID-19 from the team at RaD Car Hire


UPDATE 12 MAY:  The following depots are re-opening under Level 2, from 14th May:

Auckland Airport, Gisborne & Bay of Islands.


UPDATE 25 APRIL:  The following depots are re-opening under Level 3, from 28th April:

We're making the process 'contactless'  - so pre-payment arrangements will be made and your car may well be made available for you to collect without any personal interaction with us at all.  We will be in touch with you prior to pick up to confirm the arrangements.


In addition, these are the extra measures we are taking to protect you from Covid-19.


How we are Cleaning our Cars...

In response to COVID-19 we have purchased additional supplies of disinfectant and will ensure that every vehicle that leaves our yard has been thoroughly disinfected, paying particular attention to steering wheels, gear knobs, door handles and car keys (which will be in a sealed envelope or lock box for you).

Preparations at our Branches...

All our teams around the country have undertaken a deep clean of their offices, and as part of their regular operation will be regularly wiping down counters, keyboards, door handles and regularly used items. 

If you have any queries at all, give us a call from within New Zealand on FREEPHONE - for RaD NZ  0800 73 68 23 and for RaD Australia 0800 32 79 48.  To contact RaD Australia from within Australia - call 1800 73 68 23.

It's still a RaD Time to Plan your Next Adventure!

Working within the constraints of the overseas travel restrictions needn't stop you from having epic adventures.  It's a great time to make the most of the country you are in - and take yourself to places you might otherwise have not explored.  The freedom of your own four wheels from RaD is by far the best way to get there!
