The friendly team at RaD Car Hire Queenstown Airport has received feedback from dozens of customers over the years. Here are just a few that also feature on our Google Maps page.
"Really happy with the RaD hire car experience! Great airport pick up and drop off easy as .. fab car too! Will use again thanks RaD!"
Kate Jones
"Easy walk from Queenstown airport. Wouldn't recommend the $20 shuttle they offer if you don't have luggage."
Andrew Relly
"Best car rental in Queenstown hands down. The car was as if brand new and the prices speak for themselves. To take it even further after returning our vehicle we realized we had forgotten a wallet in the car. They were very cooperative in the matter despite me calling extremely late to pick up the wallet, 5 minutes from closing to be exact. I was told I could come tomorrow morning to pick it up but that wouldn't have been possible because our flight back to Auckland is early in the morning.. Vinny personally took it upon himself to drive the wallet over to to our hotel. Amazing above and beyond service! If your looking for great prices and a reliable trustworthy service look no further, RaD is the place to go!"

"Most impressed with the level of service provided by RaD Car Hire Queenstown. Their staff were helpful in getting us into what turned out to be a very suitable rental car for our Queenstown adventures. Very cheap car hire prices too!"

Javier Ignacio Reinoso Frola
"Great car, great service and very affordable! Will definitely use again in the future!"
Mizuki Rheese
"Rental car was exactly what we needed. Not flash but just a standard car. The price was up front and there were no hidden costs. We have been ripped off by 2 other car hire companies in the past so this was great. Genuine staff. We were involved in an accident which wasn't our fault and it was no trouble - the staff at RaD Car Hire Queenstown sorted everything and we didn't have to pay any excess as it wasn't our fault. I'll definitely be hiring here again!"
