Renting a Car at Queenstown Airport

Selecting a Vehicle

Prioritise your car choice based on your journey and group size. A compact car may be ideal for solo travellers or couples, whereas families or groups may opt for a larger vehicle such as an SUV or minivan. Remember, New Zealand's highlands and winter weather may necessitate a 4-wheel drive.

Car Rental Stations

Several international car hire firms, such as Avis, Hertz, and Europcar, as well as local favourites like JUCY and Apex, are on-site at Queenstown Airport. You'll find the car rental desks in the main terminal near the baggage claim area.

Important Local Information

Driving in New Zealand

You'll be driving on the right in New Zealand, unlike in the UK. Also, take note of local rules such as the priority given to buses and the 'no right turn on red' rule.

Fuel Stations

There are numerous petrol stations near Queenstown Airport, including the BP and Z Energy stations on Frankton Road. Most accept major credit cards and are open twenty-four hours.

Currency

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar (NZD). You'll find ATMs and currency exchange services at the airport for your convenience.

Climate

New Zealand's seasons run opposite to those in the UK. Summer is from December to February, with winter from June to August. The Otago region, including Queenstown, can have cool temperatures even in the summer, so pack accordingly.

Travelling From Queenstown Airport

Super Shuttle

You may choose a shared passenger service like Super Shuttle if you're seeking cost-effective transport to your accommodation. Booking ahead is recommended.

Taxis and Rideshares

Exploring Otago and Beyond

Queenstown

Known for adrenaline-pumping activities, Queenstown is a paradise for thrill-seekers who relish activities like bungee jumping, skydiving, and jet boating. Or take it easy and enjoy the magnificent scenery of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.

Queenstown's charm and spirit await you. Begin your journey with the peace of mind knowing you're well-prepared for the adventure that lies ahead.
