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

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

Hi there We just want to feed back to you that our experience with RaD 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! Regards, Happy Holiday Couple

I wish to acknowledge the assistance given during our rental, compliments of the staff regarding the standard of your vehicles and the attitude of yourself and your staff were very positive. Nothing was too much trouble.
