Our Story 

Discount Rentals Queenstown has been locally owned and operated for over 20 years. We pride ourselves on repeat customer business – a reflection of our friendly and personalised service that you can rely on. Our journey began from a deep passion for this beautiful region. We understand that Queenstown is more than just a destination; it’s a lifestyle, an adventure waiting to be embraced. As locals, we wanted to share this unique experience with others and provide a service that makes exploring Queenstown and New Zealand a seamless and enjoyable journey. 

Our Fleet: Tailored to Your Adventure 

Our fleet of reliable vehicles is specifically selected to cater to the wide range of activities in the Queenstown area. As well as offering standard cars, we have many specialised vehicles and a large range of minibus/vans in Queenstown. Whatever your activity, whether touring around or enjoying the great outdoors, we have a vehicle to suit. For example: 

Skiing: we offer 4WD vehicles, snow chains, and the option of roof racks or ski boxes. For ski teams, we have 4WD minibuses for 8 to 12 people. 

Mountain biking: for a small group, we offer cars with bike racks. For a group of 4-5 riders, we have vans with a purpose-built internal bike rack, or for larger groups, there are minibuses and bike trailers. 

Fishing: budget 4WD and SUVs. 

Trampers: tend to request our budget-style people movers or minibuses. 

Golf tours: we have vans that seat 8 to 9 adults with extra-large luggage compartments to fit the golf clubs – so no need for a trailer. 

School sports teams: use our 12-seat minibuses and trailers. 

Small tour parties: of up to 12 enjoy our premium minibuses. 

The film industry: particularly likes our 4WD vans and minibuses.

Excellent vehicles and service. Just right for our group wanting to carry mountain bikes and people. Everyone else seems to have just cargo vans (2 pax max) or minibuses that take 8-10 pax. Couldn't be easier with airport drop off and pick up.

These guys are the best. After unfortunately being duped by another car rental company, had to look for another rental on the same day that we needed it. On the 1st of January which is one of the busiest days for them for sure. Super lucky to have found this option online, we got quite a reasonable price too. Very easy to communicate with them. Picked up the car in less than 30 mins, owners were very friendly too — got tips on where to go and all that. Highly, highly recommended! 👍

Great service, great price, very friendly locals who run the place. May not be latest model vehicles, but price reflects that and perfect for skiing. We are definitely going back.
