The superb service from Ken at Touchdown started right from us being picked up an easy 10. The car we rented was perfect and Ken explained all of the many features. We felt looked after at all times. The rates were very reasonable and we even enjoyed a lovely coffee from our hosts. Then the extra mile happened at the end of the hire, we were driven into town to get our bus, and finally I had left my glasses behind and I had tem posted to me quickly. If you are in Queenstown, please go to touchdown first, don't hire at the airport one of the big names, you will be glad you read my review.

Fantastic service. Great location, very convenient as they operate out of Commodore Hotel so pickup and drop off is a breeze. Hired a Mini from them for the weekend, so perfect for the weekend away - wonderful car.
Thanks a lot Touchdown Rentals.

Rented a few mini coopers out of Queenstown location. Ken was absolutely spectacular! Helpful with anything and all things I needed. He provided a welcoming experience that I would surely bring me back as a customer.

Queenstown, a special reunion of a US family for the weekend. We landed at the airport Saturday evening and--even with a reservation at a famous car renter for the next day--discovered that no one had any cars left for hire. It was also Marathon weekend--we hadn't known. We did find a list on the wall that included Touchdown's phone. We got hold of Ken who was delighted to help us. I didn't want to drive at night so we arranged pickup Sunday. Ken and an associate drove up to Arrowtown bright and early to personally deliver the luxurious late model car (it looked brand new) and off we went to Glenorchy. It was a wonderful weekend of driving and sightseeing in style. Amazing service and hospitality. Kudos to Ken!

Excellent service from first enquiry to car pick up and indeed extending the hire. The Subaru Outback we hired is brand new, immaculate and drives superbly.

I heartily recommend Touchdown: much better than the multi-national chains and a really top quality car.

My Wife and I picked up the new Mustang from Touchdown for a weekend escape to Hanmer Springs.
Collecting the car was a breeze and Gavin had us on our way with the minimum of fuss. Not having to queue at an airport Kiosk is great and I am sure that tourist drivers appreciate not having to negottiate Christchurch airport's carpark as their first experience of New Zealand driving.
After dropping the kids at home we set off on the highway north, the Mustang eager to stretch it's legs and careful attention is required to ensure the speed limit is respected. This immaculately presented vehicle drives so quietly, the speed you are travelling is quite deceptive.
Returning the car was just as simple as the pickup, no fuss and were on our way.
If you are looking for stress free rental cars in Christchurch (they offer the same service in Queenstwon too). You cant beat the top class vehicles and genuine service at Touchdown. 10/10 from us!

My partner and I hired a Mini Cooper from Touchdown over the recent holiday period. Absolutely fantastic! 10 star plus. The car was immaculate, the check in service was superb. They even dropped me off after I returned the car which saved me a lot of hassle. The car was perfect for our needs, as there was only the 2 of us and a reasonable amount of luggage for 2 weeks.
The car handled exceptionally well and it made the drive to the West Coast from Christchurch a lot of fun, the compact size was brilliant for taking advantage of miniscule parking options in Queenstown.
Excellent car, excellent service, excellent holiday! will use again!
Thank you Thomas and the team.

WE have used Touchdown Car Rentals twice recently in Queenstown and they have been outstanding. We received a new Subaru Outback for a very good rate and they came to the airport to deliver the vehicle and had the paperwork all sorted so we could jump in and drive away! Being a smaller operation you get personalised service, and when combined with staying at Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel - same ownership - the whole experience is just fantastic! Will use Touchdown Car Rentals every time we are in Queenstown and need to hire a car!

I had one of Touchdown's mini convertibles for 3 days. Fantastic car, in excellent condition, loved zipping around the city in it. Thanks so much for the help and support from the Touchdown team. They were very efficient and obliging when I needed the car dropped off and had excellent customer service.

My partner and I hired the Mini for Queen's Birthday weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better car to zip around in in Christchurch. It was convenient and simple to get a shuttle from the airport to pick up the hotel and vice versa. The vehicle was well looked after and in perfect condition.

We hired a pair of matching mini's for our wedding in April, one convertible and one hardtop which looked fantastic in photos. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the service we received. Nothing was a problem. The team at Touchdown even went as far as arranging for the ribbon to be placed on the cars. Highly recommended for great cars and great service.

The service from the owner was fantastic. The owner communicated personally with us and was very easy and pleasant to to deal with. We had a delay in arriving in Queenstown and therefore a day late picking up the car. The owner phoned us and offered for us to have the car for another day at the end of our holiday to make up for our delay. The car was new and the latest model with all the mod cons at a very competitive price. A much nicer car than what we have previously rented through other companies for a similar price. We were very impressed and would highly recommend Touchdown rentals.

As a company we have been hiring vehicles off and on for several years now, often several vehicles and at short notice.
The service we have received from start to finish has always been friendly, superb and highly competitive with brand new quality cars.
Initially we hired elsewhere but because of indifferent service with poor quality vehicles we researched the market and found Touchdown; they have been a total blessing from start to finish which makes our job so much more fulfilling.

These guys are awesome, I can't speak highly enough of their service, pricing or the overall experience that I had with Touchdown. Christchurch was sold out of rental cars because of the cricket world cup, but they looked after me and found me a vehicle with very little notice... and it was a top of the line model, for an amazing price. I had a bit of an issue during my time in Christchurch, and the Touchdown team were superb. They looked after me throughout and were very helpful and caring.

If you are looking for awesome service when hiring a great quality, very clean and very affordable vehicle, you should call these guys to come and pick you up from the airport (free). You will be very pleased that you skipped the queues of the major rental car companies at the airport! I'd score them 11 out of 10 if I could.

We hired a Subaru Forrester for 5 days during the Speights Coast to Coast. Touchdown hired the vehicle out with kayak and bikes racks as well as a baby capsule.

The service we received from Touchdown Rentals & the staff of the Commodore Hotel was second to none. I have no problem in recommending Touchdown for a "as new" clean and optioned vehicle with free airport tranfers to anyone seeking something different or more than the big multi-nationals can provide.

We've rented 4WDs from Touchdown many times now - their prices are sharp and the convenience of picking up vehicles from the Commodore Hotel is unbeatable. The vehicles have always been in perfect condition and very low mileage. In short, we don't go anywhere else for rental vehicles!

I rented a near new 4wd for a skiing holiday in the South Island. I found the vehicle was fantastic and was immaculate when I picked it up. Touchdown car rentals went out of their way to provide a fantastic service by providing flexibility to my needs. I found it was great being able to pick up and drop off the 4wd outside the normal working hours of most rental companies - Touchdown car rentals are located at the Commodore Hotel just a few minutes from the airport so they can accommodate after hours easily whereas a call out fee would be charged by the airport rental companies. A free shuttle was provided to me by the Hotel to pick me up from the airport and drop me off either side of rental the 4wd. Cheers for the ease of picking up the 4wd.

PS: Same great experience in 2014 too! Original review: Feb 2013 We rented a Toyota Highlander from Touchdown for 26 days for our 4000km tour of NZ South Island. Very convenient pickup as we were staying at the Commodore. The vehicle was spotless, very comfortable and roomy. When we called back into Christchurch part way through it was re-valeted. That's what I call service! Thanks guys
