TRAVELLING UNDER THE RED AND ORANGE TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM FROM 3 DEC 2021: Airlines, ferries and other transport operators will require you to have your vaccine pass or negative test before you can travel, and the same applies if you are crossing the Auckland border (after 15 Dec). Whilst our industry is not required to check vaccine passes, when you collect your car or use our shuttle service, please mask up, scan in and follow physical distancing guidelines. Contactless transactions can be arranged, just let us know in advance if this is your preference, you have a mask exemption, or if you are exiting an MIQ facility - we will be only too happy to assist. Enjoy your summer adventure!

Hi we were visiting Taupo from Ireland. The guys in RAD Taupo were amazing ! From info on local activities -going out of their way to check times and availability. They were friendly and genuine in their desire to help us enjoy our time with our family .

I’d recommend them to anyone visiting Taupo.  Thanks again guys ..it’s the little things that matter!

About Us

Bay of Islands Car Rentals is part of the RaD Car Hire franchise — which means, if you don't know us, that we offer seriously good and comfortable vehicles for rental as well as smaller rental vehicles for people on a tight budget.

We offer the best deals in the whole of the Bay of Islands — and you can pick up one of our vehicles at Kerikeri Airport, central Paihia or Opua. And we'll bring a car to you if you need us to.

Short term car rentals / long term car rentals... we cover them all and are happy to help you with whatever you need.

Our vehicles are all in tip-top shape and we have back-up in case of accidents.

We're the big car rental company and we're the little car rental company. We're here to provide vehicles that people need to have a really good time in the Bay of Islands!

RaD Car Hire Bay of Islands offers free delivery and pick up within the Paihia area and airport deliveries can be arranged.

We also deliver and collect to Cruise Ship arrivals at Waitangi.

To make a booking pop through an ONLINE BOOKING request, as that is the easiest and most accurate way for you to give us the details we will need to be able to assist you.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
