THE RENTAL CAR PROCESS

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!
