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!

ABOUT US

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!

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 finally made it home last night after a couple of long days! Thanks again for the car - it was a pleasure to do business with you and I'll happily refer my friends and family to you. All the very best for a successful winter.
