Hi there

We just want to feed back to you that our experience with RentaDent  was fantastic!

We hired a car mid-September (at the last moment) and were treated to immediate friendly service, a car that’s in better shape than our own, and easy directions of where and how to leave it at the airport.

Very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend to others!




Happy Holiday Couple


Thank-you Rent a Dent - every step of the process was easy, from your fast reply by email when I contacted you through your website, to the friendly service and the ultra-thrifty but utterly reliable car. Love the can-do attitude. You are definitely my car-hire company of choice.


Thank you,

Margie Thomson

Thanks very much for the lovely service. I will recommend it to anyone going to New Zealand.

RentaDent Nelson is changing its name to reflect its” Evolution”

Welcome to RaD Premium Rental Car Hire Nelson.

Nothing has changed except the name, we still give you new cars, great service and prices that make you smile instead of horrifying you.

We thought that it was time for a change, all around us companies are changing their brand titles to modernise or fit into the marketplace better. Shell changing to ‘Z’ and then the finance company changing to ‘GEM’ to name but two, we felt it was time to abbreviate our name and modernise it at the same time. Hopefully it will be easier for you to remember, so call us whether you need a rental car for business or pleasure we have the rental vehicle for you.

The ongoing rebuild at Nelson Airport is of course presenting challenges to all the companies working there and will continue to do so for some considerable time but as before we are enthusiastic to ensure that it is an easy process for you to book and collect your rental car at Nelson Airport.

The stress of standing in queues or wondering where to go next is negated as one of us will be there to meet you on your arrival and take you in our Transfer Bus from the Bus parking area (Located to the left of the Terminal Building) to our Depot or new Car Parks some three minutes’ drive away. This makes the collection process easy and of course we personally hand your rental vehicle over to you ensuring that you have all the information you need to enjoy your rental experience. Returning the car is even easier and we will inform you of how to do this when at collection.

You can of course collect or return your rental car to the Nelson Airport, Nelson Depot or indeed a Nelson City Hotel or Motel if you so wish. We offer a collection and drop service for Nelson Hotels and Motels inside the CBD including the Monaco Resort.

Our vehicle rental fleet is all under three (3) years of age, immaculately presented, smoke free of course and with all the modern inclusions that you would expect to find in a rental car, Airbags, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, Auxiliary Ports, CD Players to name but a few.

We offer a great choice in rental cars to meet your needs, whether you require a small hatchback, a five seat Bike Bus, 4WD’s with tow bars and bike racks, an 8-seat luxury MPV or a 12 seat Minibus, we have them all, see them all on our Vehicle Information page.

Our rates include GST, Unlimited Kilometres and Full Standard Insurance with affordable options to reduce your insurance excess liability right down to zero.
