Take advantage of our tertiary student discount - pay less, experience more - our Labour Weekend rates are very competitive!

Looking at the harbour with Brad RaD Car Hire

As a tertiary student you get 10% discount* when hiring a car from  Rent a Dent (RaD) Car Hire Auckland City over the full academic year, making our Auckland CBD car rental rates great value for money.

You get 10% off if you book by email, phone or walk in. The discount is automatically included in online quotes for all car rental bookings between April and October because all customers can get 10% off over winter if they book online.

Duh! So what's so special about this special then for tertiary students?

  • You get the discount if you phone, email, walk in OR book online. 
  • You get the discount from March until the end of November. (Other customers only get it mid April until mid October)
  • If more than one of you intends to drive you don't have to pay extra but you must list everyone who will be driving for insurance purposes!

How do you get the tertiary student car rental discount?

You need to show us -

  • Your tertiary student ID to prove you really are a tertiary student.  
  • Your credit card details (required of all customers)
  • Your driver’s licence and the driver licences of anyone else who will be driving (required of all customers and must be a full licence).

What do you do if you only have an overseas driver's licence?

You can legally drive in New Zealand for up to 12 months if you have either a current driver's licence from your home country, or an International Driving Permit (IDP). After 12 months, you are have to convert to a New Zealand driver's licence. 
All drivers in New Zealand, including visitors from other countries, must carry their licence or permit at all times when driving. You will only be able to drive the same types of vehicles you are licensed to drive in your home country.

English translation required

If your overseas driver licence or permit isn’t in English you must provide an accurate English translation when you are driving. There is a service you can access at our office once you're arrived to pick up the car - just ask us for the contact details. It will take up to an hour and will cost $40. Alternatively, you can organise your translation before you come to pick up the car. Here is a link to a list of approved translators, including a large number in Auckland.
