Car Rental at Queenstown Airport

Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s most desirable locations, thanks to its stunning mountain scenery, postcard-perfect waterfront, and as many thrills as your heart rate can handle. It’s a must-do on any Kiwi itinerary.

When you fly into Queenstown, you’ll find us located only ten minutes from the airport. We know there’s no time to waste when there are bridges, boats, burgers, and mountains awaiting!

Did you know that during business hours you can catch a free shuttle bus from the airport to JUCY Queenstown? Read further down the page to find out all the deets for picking up your JUCY car rental!

Rent a JUCY car from Queenstown Airport

As soon as you land at Queenstown Airport, you’ll be itching to get on the road. It’s hard not to feel that pull to explore when snow-capped mountains surround the airport like monolithic teasers. 

Thankfully, we feel the same, so we have our branch only ten minutes from Queenstown Airport, and a dedicated team committed to getting you behind your JUCY wheels in no time.  

As sad as we are to spend less time connecting with you, we’re stoked that you’ll get more time to hike, jetboat, ski, luge, parasail, board, bungee, paraglide, swing, river surf, whitewater raft, and more!  

Are you ready for your Queenstown thrills? Book online or call us on our freephone number 0800 399 736.

We’re so close to Queenstown Airport that picking up your JUCY rental car is as easy as picking up a pack of Tim Tams at a gas station (trust us, NZ makes Tim Tam binging effortless). Check out our shuttle bus info on the tab to the left to find out how to catch a FREE shuttle bus ride from the airport.

Heading in from downtown? You’ll need to make your own way to us. The cheapest route is to travel on Bus #11 from outside 30 Camp Street and then pick up the free JUCY shuttle bus from the airport. Alternatively, a cab is around $30. It’s only a 10-minute drive but allow some buffer time in case the traffic picks up.


After-Hours pick-up is unavailable until further notice.



When returning your vehicle, drive to 52 Grant Road in Franktown, only a few minutes from Queenstown Airport. You can’t miss our brightly coloured branch! Easy!

Check the following before you hand your keys to our friendly crew: 

  • Have you filled the petrol tank? The nearest station is BP Connect Queenstown, Cnr State Highway 6 and Frankton Road. 
  • Clear our any rubbish and remove your belongings.  
  • Bid your wheels goodbye and hand the key in at the counter.  

Returning after 4:00pm?  

  • We allow after-hour drop-offs for cars only. Drive to 52 Grant Road in Frankton and follow the signage on where to park your vehicle.
  • Clear out anything from the vehicle that is not ours – your luggage, rubbish, even that hat you nearly lost three times on the mountain.  
  • Lock the car and leave the key in the signposted key drop box inside the green shed.

All about Queenstown’s JUCY rental cars

It’s New Zealand’s most talked-about destination for a reason. Whether it’s the spectacular mountain scenery, the vibrant-yet-quaint town centre, or the range of activities to tick off your bucket list, Queenstown is the kind of place that steals your heart. We think it’s impossible not to want to return! 

Renting a car in Queenstown gives you the freedom to visit the mountain trails, stunning lakes, and local communities that make the region special. You can also discover lesser-known treasures – we’re still finding new places!  

Forget tour buses telling you where to go. When you have your own wheels, you can choose to stop by Paradise, venture to Lake Unknown or even to take a pic next to the world’s largest bra fence (yep!).    

Or maybe you want to go west to Wanaka? In summer hike the spectacular Rob Roy Glacier; in winter Treblecone has long runs and epic off-piste terrainChoose to heli-hike on Fox Glacier, take a chopper over Mt Cook, or hunt the Arahura River for greenstone with a Maori guide.  


Drive further south to marvel at Milford’s scenery aboard our JUCY Cruise boat. As a JUCY rental car customer, the lead driver even receives a 50% discount.  

Our goal is to not hold you back on your New Zealand explorations. You’re welcome to drive across the country from Queenstown to Auckland if you feel the call. Wallow one-way journeys, for a fee but remember to book in advance to make that happen!
