What do you need to rent a car in Queenstown?
Any rental company you choose will need these two things — your driver’s license and a credit card in your name. If you decide to opt out of the supplier’s insurance plan, proof of other coverage may also be needed. Check your policy so you know what to bring with you to the rental counter.
Can I drive in Queenstown with my U.S. Driver's license?
You sure can. But it’s quite easy to obtain an International Driving Permit, so we suggest getting one. This permit lets you drive in most countries, so you’ll have peace of mind when you hit the road in Queenstown.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Queenstown?

Where can I find a Queenstown car rental if I am younger than 25?
The ability to rent a car if you are under 25 years old in Queenstown often depends on the rental supplier you choose. Some outlets apply a surcharge for customers between 21 and 24 years of age, but other companies may not apply any additional fees for this age range. Ensure you understand the terms and conditions of your selected car rental dealer to avoid any nasty surprises at the rental desk.
