When I returned the car at Queenstown Airport, the carpark was full and the staff was running around the carpark to vacate spaces. It would be very undesirable if flight schedule was tight.

I was hoping to get the Kia, Sportage and that is exactly what i got, love it. A good car to drive, perfect for what we needed. the location at the airport is perfect and the young lady who served me was very efficient and helpfull. Nothing!!

Anonymous Christchurch Airport 12 April 2018
This is an excellent experience. I got an upgrade to a white rav4 and it was very clean. As well it cost less in these 5days tour. It didn't provide a phone holder.

1st vehicle was swapped without any issue when notified about a bad musty smell.
