EXPLORE CHRISTCHURCH

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,

Thank you again for the second time this year. You delivered to my wife a spotlessly clean and detailed vehicle, the service was prompt and the vehicle delivered with a smile and local service. I will certainly recommend your vehicles to our friends, regards

Thank-you RaD Car Hire - 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.

Explore Christchurch and Beyond

Christchurch is the gateway to exploring the Canterbury Region as well as a great place to start your travels around the South Island with a large and modern Domestic and International Airport and RaD Car Hire located close by.
 
Christchurch was rattled by earthquakes in 2010 & 2011 resulting in significant damage across the city and the loss of some of its most iconic historic buildings. Since then NZ’s Garden City has rallied to rebuild to be better than before and now is more modern, greener and more creative. Impressive art can be found splashed over high building walls, clever uses have been found for still vacant lots and the city has now been regenerated with vibrant cafes, restaurants and bars. 
 
With so many things in offer on Christchurch’s doorstep a RaD rental car is one of the best ways to see and do whatever takes your fancy.
 
The quaint French seaside village of Akaroa is only a short drive away or head towards the Southern Alps to see our highest mountain, Aoraki with the spectacular alpine scenery of Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki just a little further afield. Hanmer Springs is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate with gorgeous thermal pools in which to soak and is just two hours’ drive from Christchurch.
