SAFE DRIVING IN NEW ZEALAND

Hi Greg
I just thought I'd send you a quick note to say how much I loved the new pickup system - it's so much easier than the old one. From landing to being on the road took about ten minutes - brilliant!
Thanks heaps
Nic

Your rental vehicle was brilliant for the whole of our amazing holiday - thank you very much for supplying a motor of great reliability and hassle-free. We were all very comfortable and it cruised along smoothly at 100kmph. Returned to Christchurch on schedule. Many thanks and hopefully we will return another day to you beautiful country.

Me and my friends have used RaD a whole lot the last few months and hired cars from different branches. It has been a great experience with great service and neat and easy booking. We will be back next year.

At RaD Car Hire we want you to have a safe and enjoyable trip around New Zealand.

If this is your first time driving on our New Zealand roads please take the time to familiarise yourself with our road rules. Here is a quick guide to the things to look out for...

DriveSafe.org.nz has been developed to help visitors to New Zealand safely enjoy their self-drive holiday. Driving in New Zealand may be different to driving in your home country, or other countries you have visited. This site provides basic information about New Zealand road rules and etiquette, along with links to more details about everything that those unfamiliar with our roads need to know. And, here's another link that will help you understand 'What's different about driving in NZ'

If you are arriving after a long-haul flight we respectfully suggest that you get some rest before embarking on the next stage of your journey. Consider organising some overnight accommodation and picking up your rental car the following morning!
