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!

Thanks for the great car! Keep up the fantastic service guys.

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
