Road Runner Rentals pick up locations in New Zealand

Road Runner Rentals offer pick up and drop off locations in Christchurch and Auckland.

  • Christchurch, the “Garden City” is a primary entry point for many travellers to New Zealand’s south. You can explore the South Island from Christchurch, either on a one-way Christchurch to Queenstown road trip or on a big round-trip loop that will take you to Invercargill and back.
  • Auckland is known as the City of Sails, and is New Zealand’s largest city. Many visitors will arrive here and look around before heading throughout the North Island or the country. 

Road Runner Rentals can also arrange for pick ups in other locations such as Queenstown if you prefer a one-way rental. However, you will need to contact the team directly to discuss the timing and additional costs for this service. Enjoy exploring in your Road Runner rental!
