ABOUT US

This is the 3rdtime this year we have used your company at 3 different locations and I have to say we have been really impressed with the consistently high standard of staff and quality of rentals you provide. It was interesting to add that while we were waiting for our pick up Roger ambled over to a competitor counter to see what a little run about would cost for the day, try $120!!

We have always enjoyed dealing with your company  and your pleasant staff, I would like to personally thank you for making the effort to upgrade us into a vehicle better suited for our needs. Regards,

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.
