Queenstown Car Rental

The only place to ski

Ski Queenstown with one of the leading NZ rental car suppliers - Hertz New Zealand, Europcar, Budget National, Avis or Thrifty.

Winter is ski time, festival time, fun time in Queenstown as the city comes alive.

Four of New Zealand's best ski fields are within easy driving distance of the centre of Queenstown. When travelling in New Zealand's alpine regions at this time of year, it's advisable to rent a four wheel drive vehicle. These are readily available but it's a good idea to book early. You can view and compare cheap car rental.

Queenstown Ski Fields

The nearest to Queenstown is Coronet Peak. The road from Queenstown all the way to the car park is sealed and it takes a comfortable 40 minutes to an hour and a half to get there depending on traffic.

A little further away on the other side of Lake Wakatipu is The Remarkables Ski Field which, because of its higher altitude and location tends to open earlier in the season. The road is not sealed and is best suited for 4 wheel drive vehicles.

Approximately an hour and a half away in your rental four wheel drive through some of the most beautiful alpine scenery in the world over the Crown Range, is beautiful Lake Wanaka and another renowned New Zealand resort town Wanaka. There you'll find two more of New Zealand's international ski fields: Cardrona and Treble Cone.

Queenstown is the jewel in New Zealand's tourism crown. As expected from a top level tourism destination there is much to see and do in the area and you can book a Hertz Rental Car, Avis Rental Car or National, Thrifty or Budget through Vroom Vroom Vroom in Queenstown and save.

Bungy Jumping was invented in Queenstown by AJ Hackett and has become a world wide phenomenon. Queenstown is still viewed as the Bungy Jumping capital of the world and it seems visitors of all ages are keen to try this unique,exhilarating experience.
There are many sightseeing options in and around Queenstown which include organized bus tours and shuttle-bus services to most tourist destinations. However, for the independent traveler a rental car is a great way to make the most of this scenic wonderland.

Regional History

Queenstown car rental
The Wakatipu Basin offers some of the most spectacular scenery in New Zealand. It's estimated that 15,000 years ago during the last ice age, this whole region was covered in glacial ice. The lake was gouged out of the schist rock by a glacial flow, and thecraggy steep cliffs and spectacular rock faces are a testament to that era.
Within a short distance of Queenstown are a variety of stunning natural features. Queenstown and Arrowtown are steeped in New Zealand's gold rush history and there are many walking and tramping trails.
