PICK UP INSTRUCTIONS

DROP OFF INSTRUCTIONS

Between 08:00am - 05:00pm

Dropping off your rental car at our Queenstown Airport depot is super simple, the key things to remember are:

  • Make sure you have fueled up your vehicle to the same level as when you picked it up to avoid a refuelling charge ($25). The nearest gas station to our Queenstown car rental depot is the PAK'n'SAVE Fuel just up the road on Hawthorne Drive.

  • Make sure the vehicle is left in a clean & tidy state - we don't expect it to be fully groomed or anything, but a general clean and tidy will help to avoid an additional charge.

After checking the above, simply drop the keys off to the branch staff who will do a 2 minute final handover process and your away!

Our Queenstown Airport Shuttle service does work both ways - simply ask for a lift back to the airport when dropping off your vehicle.

Unfortunately, After Hours Pick Ups are unavailable from our Queenstown Depot. If you are running a bit late for your vehicle collection please give us a call on 0800 288 699 and we will try to accommodate your request. If we are unable to provide a vehicle to you after hours, your vehicle will be ready to collect when the depot opens at 8am the following day.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE

What is the best rental car in Queenstown?

The best rental car in Queenstown is typically a bigger vehicle with a bit more grunt or a 4WD to get more easily navigate the ups & downs and rougher roads that are common in the Queenstown area.
Snap's most popular rental cars in Queenstown are our RAV4's and Toyota Highlander's or the Toyota Corolla for those who are a bit more budget conscious.

Where is the rental car drop off location in Queenstown?

You can drop off your Snap rental car at our Queenstown depot at 5 Glenda Drive, Frankton - the drop off & pick up locations at this depot are the same. Once you have dropped off your rental car, our free Queenstown Airport shuttle is available to take you to the terminal.

Where do I collect my Queenstown rental car?

You can collect your Snap rental car from Queenstown at 5 Glenda Drive, Frankton - our Queenstown depot. The best way to get there is via our free Queenstown airport shuttle, but walking is an option too if you are feeling fit (note - it's about 40 minutes which isn't ideal if you are lugging bags about)! Simply walk into the depot and one of our friendly team will be able to help you to your rental car.

How much does it cost to rent a car in Queenstown?

Car rental prices in Queenstown vary based on the type of car you are renting, when you are renting the car for and how long you are booking the car for. Popular periods such as Christmas, New Year and long weekends will typically see higher prices, as well as bigger more luxurious vehicle categories. Overall, prices typically peak in Queenstown at both the height of the winter months (when the Queenstown Ski season is in full swing) and the height of the Summer months when NZers and other tourists alike are soaking up the sun.

A tip for reducing car rental costs from Queenstown Airport – look to book your car from operators that aren’t based in the Airport terminals themselves (like Snap). These operators don’t have to pay the lofty terminal rents and so are typically in a better position to offer a better deal. Snap even offers a free airport shuttle to and from the Queenstown airport terminal to our depot!

How long does it take to walk to the Snap car rental depot from Queenstown Airport?

Our Queenstown Airport depot is located 3.2km from the Terminal, taking about 40 minutes to walk.
