Queenstown Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Often called the adventure tourism capital of the world, Queenstown attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Lying on the eastern shore of Lake Wakatipu, the city is as famous for its majestic sights as it is for things to see and do. These are three of its most interesting attractions:

  • Winter Sports. Although New Zealand is the southernmost country on the planet, it is also a global hub of skiing and snowboarding. The city is surrounded by alpine scenery and plenty of high-quality slopes like Coronet Peak and the Remarkables. There’s plenty of options for everyone from first-timers to seasoned pros. Also worth checking out is the Snow Farm, an area famous for cross-country skiing — although less breathtaking than going down the mountain, it’s a great way to explore the surrounding nature. The ski season in Queenstown generally runs from late June to the beginning of October.
  • Adventure sports. Even if you’ve come to Queenstown during the Southern hemisphere’s summer, don’t despair — there’s plenty of thrill on offer during the warmest time of the year as well. Activities like mountaineering, bungee jumping, parasailing, paragliding, and many more are offered to visiting daredevils by tours and companies all around the city. Visit the adventure section of the city’s official tourism website to learn more. 
  • Mount Aspiring National Park. A land of green valleys, snow-capped summits, and deep fjords, New Zealand (and especially the South Island) is epitomized by its nature. The national parks of the country are the right places to enjoy this wilderness at its most untouched. Whether you want to feel like a hobbit on a quest by following the hiking trails or try to spot local fauna, Mount Aspiring is the right place. The town of Makarora, a gateway to this national park, is about 130 km (80 miles) north of Queenstown and can be reached in less than two hours. The park can be visited on a day-trip, but there are also lodging options. Fiordland National Park, a similar natural wonder, is about the same distance southwest of Queenstown.

Finally, Air Milford has flights to Milford Sound and Te Anau, small, but busy, airports in popular tourist destinations.

Terminals

One single-level terminal serves both local and international flights.

Location

The airport is around 8 km (5 miles) from the Queenstown central business district. Motorways 6 and 6A/Frankton Rd. are the main roads connecting Queenstown Airport to the city.

  • Small cars - from $22 per day
  • SUVs - from $49 per day

Europcar and Enterprise (including Alamo) have desks in the airport’s terminal near the domestic baggage collection area. If arriving on an international flight, take a left after exiting the international arrivals area.

All other rental companies serving the airport provide shuttles for their customers. A free phone can be found outside of the terminal by the check-in area with which you can call the specific company.

Find out which are the easiest to find and more in our list of the best rental companies in Queenstown.

Services and facilities

Nearest gas station

A BP station located at the Highway 6 roundabout is on the way to the airport from those coming from most directions. If approaching the airport from the south, it is also the most convenient station, even though it requires a circle to reach, as there are no other stations south of the airport.

If renting from NU, Discount, or hitch, an NPD station located on the roundabout of Highway 6 and Hawthorne Drive is the best station for filling up before returning a rental car. It is directly on the way to the locations of those companies.

FAQ

I am 20 years old. Can I rent a car in Queenstown?
Yes, It is possible for drivers as young as 18 to rent a car in Queenstown, but only from certain rental companies (be sure to select your age when searching). You might be charged an additional young driver fee, though.
How many drivers are allowed?
A maximum of four drivers can be added to the rental contract. Customers can add additional drivers on the booking page of our website or at the rental desk. Note that there is usually an additional fee for each additional driver.
Is it possible to know the registration number of the rental car in advance to be able to book a ferry?
No, in most cases it is not possible to know the license plate number before picking up the car as often times the rental company will not know which exact vehicle they will provide you with. Ferry companies are aware of this and allow you to book ahead (e.g., on Blueridge by choosing Rental Car as the make).

May rental companies don’t allow their cars to be taken on ferries and instead have cars on both sides of the Cook Straight. In this case, you’d drop off a car on one side and pick up another on the other side and book your journey on the ferry as a foot passenger. Be sure to contact the rental company in advance to find out whether you can take the car on a ferry or not.
After how many days will the rental company unblock the deposit?
It can take up to 20 days for a rental company to unblock the deposit amount from a customer’s credit card after the car is returned. Often this is due to checking for things such as traffic violations.
I would like to rent a 4wd vehicle, how can I be sure that the vehicle I select is such?
AS 4wd vehicles are popular in Queenstown, multiple rental companies offer them. Look for the 4x4 badge in the search results or use the 4x4 filter under the car specifications on the left-hand side of the results. These vehicles are guaranteed to be either 4wd or AWD.
Are snow chains provided for the rental car during winter?
While almost all rental companies have all-season or winter tires on their cars during winter, most do not include snow chains. You can, however, rent them from most companies for an additional fee.

Our Customers Reviews

Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.

Generally a good all round service value for money. Improvements, didn’t get the Nissan as hired, very bad brakes gave us poor confidence, no snow chains available so extra bus trips up mountain. Probably book earlier next time and likely look for 4 wheel drive option.

We fitted in a lot of activities in our 4 and a half days. We spent one night in Te Anau, one night at the Lodge in Milford Sound and went on a 3 hour cruise the next morning. A must-do trip that compares with nothing else in the world. We spent 2 nights in Queenstown. We managed a short trip to Arrowtown, Cardrona and Wanaka, and also to the Lavender Farm. Back in Queenstown we went up the Gondola and down the Luge, which was great fun. Went on the Go-Orange 1 hour jet boat trip which was also great fun, but prepare for the cold and to get wet. Try the FergBurgers, they are great! A great trip had by all. Wish we had more time to see and do more. Nothing compares to NZ.

Most things can be accessed from the city but it’s good to have a car for a couple of days to head out to some off the track spots

Great being able to travel easily to Wanaka and Glenorchy independently. Able to make last minute decisions as to where to visit as had own transport rather than relying on public transport.

You'll get to see so much more with your own car in the Queenstown area with much better flexibility. Milford Sound, Franz Josef are easily do-able.

I rented from the cheapest place I could find, but it was still more expensive compared to renting from other cities in New Zealand and around the world. When you turn your rental car in, make sure there's someone there to check it in for you. If you have to turn the car in the day before and just take a taxi or rideshare to the airport, do it.
