RaD Auckland Airport was absolutely fantastic to rent a car from. They were friendly, honest, factual and helpful at every turn. Your team even allowed us to change vehicle at no extra charge, as well as help us understand the confusing toll system of New Zealand. We warmly recommend them to anyone.
