Car Rental Queenstown Airport – Information

Our Queenstown Airport location is conveniently located inside the airport’s terminal building.

Being located in the airport terminal means less waiting time for you when collecting your hire vehicle! The sooner you are on your way with one of our car rentals, the sooner you will be able to enjoy Queenstown and the wider Otago region.

Skiers – welcome to the ski capital of New Zealand! With the most popular ski fields of the country located around Queenstown and Wanaka, you won’t be disappointed. As you are likely to drive on some impressive kiwi terrain enjoying magnificent views, don’t forget to talk to us if you want to hire snow chains. We’ve also got ski racks for hire to help transport all the gear you’ll need for the mountain. We recommend you to book these additional items at the time of your booking as these can get booked up quickly!

Please carefully read our collection information page to prepare for your upcoming trip.


We are proud to offer you a wide range of vehicles at our Queenstown Airport location. At Ezi, value doesn’t mean compromise. As the largest independent operator in the land of the long white cloud with a fleet of predominantly brand new vehicles, you can be confident you are in safe hands. We have everything from compact rental cars – great for couples wanting a smaller option for around city use, through to larger SUV’s and Utes to transport people in comfort along with their belongings and of course, their adventure gear!
