Very happy I went with Ignition! No other way I’d rather explore New Zealand than with these beautiful cars. I rented the Porsche Carrera 4S, the R8 and the Aston for a couple days each. Laura was absolutely lovely to deal with and gave us the full luxury experience. The entire process was easy and seamless. Well done guys you provide a fantastic service.

Such a cool experience getting off the plane and having a supercar waiting for us at our hotel. It turned an amazing trip into an experience of a lifetime. Nothing like the surreal feeling of having the top down on the V8 vantage and cruising through the breath taking mountain range. Absolute dream come true for a car lover like myself. I will highly recommend to my friends and I will definitely be to beautiful Queenstown! A very well deserved 5 stars!!

I was crazy in love with my (then) girlfriend but I'd been putting off asking her to marry me for ages (4 years). I knew I wanted the proposal to be really special because she is really special but I kept putting it off as I thought I would never be able to organise it all. I had a rough plan - I wanted to trick her into walking to the top of a mountain, pop the question, get a helicopter flight, land at a mind blowing supercar and whisk her off to a Hotel through some of the most scenic countryside in the world. But I'm just a disorganised man child...how would I get all that sorted out? Enter Laura and the team at Ignition Self Drive, during a quick phone call she listened to my plan and promised to call me back. A short time later my phone rang and Laura proceeded to run through the detailed itinerary she had created from my loose but ambitious plan. I confirmed the details and Laura put the wheel in motion. All I had to worry about was getting the soon to be fiancée up the mountain and a ring on her finger.

Come d-day I executed my part of the plan perfectly, I was able to get her all the way up the mountain without a clue and got a very happy, excited, emotional YES. Little did my new fiancée know that was just the beginning of the surprises.

From the peak of the mountain we were met by a exclusive helicopter which took us for a romantic scenic tour high above Queenstown. We then landed back at the airport, where the receptionist discreetly handed me the keys to the most amazing car I have ever had the pleasure to drive - the Audi R8.

From here we drove up the beautiful Crown Range stopping at the lookout to admire the view, then we drove on to Wanaka for a glass of bubble by the lake. The Audi was amazing, it’s in amazing condition, the exhaust note sounds amazing, acceleration is breath taking, it stops on a dime and handles like a dream. It’s a true supercar.

We then drove back towards Cadrona and stayed in the famous Cadrona Hotel.

The next day both myself and my fiancée were eager to get back behind the wheel, we took the long way back to Queenstown, stopping at Wanaka for breakfast, through Cromwell, Bannock Burn and through the Kawarau Gorge.

I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Laura and the team at Ignition, you made my plan a reality. We now have some great memories and a very special story to tell. My advice to anyone out there looking to impress or create lasting memories - call Ignition.

If you're into cars, you should definitely check these guys out. The service is fantastic from start to finish. Laura makes the entire experience absolutely seamless. We have hired the Porsche and the R8 and both were amazing. The cars are always spotless and are so much fun to drive. I would happily recommend Ignition to anyone!

My life partner & I tied the knot officially on 17.08.17 in Queenstown in the midst of winter. As idyllic a spot as Queenstown is, we added drama with a stunning red Lamborghini Gallardo Spider, incidentally delivered by an equally stunning red-head who happens to be the owner! Laura & her Lamborghini! While the Gallardo is stunning in the photos, its aural orchestra enriched our video as well! It was a magical wedding but the following day, we needed more than two seats and Laura delivered the Audi Q7 with it's potent V8 twin-turbo diesel equipped with cossetting air suspension. While the Audi delivered in spades in making our day fabulous, it saved one final surprise which I could barely believed - for all the ground we covered, the Q7 literally sipped whereas my own Mercedes ML would have guzzled. For anyone who wants their trip to Queenstown to be that extra special, I wholeheartedly recommend Ignition - fabulous cars, tremendous service & fabulous people! Three cheers for Ignition! And we shall be back!

We had a wonderful time hiring the Porsche from Ignition. Right from the beginning Laura provided fantastic customer service, she was really prompt on responding to emails which is always appreciated. The car was perfect & clean - we had so much fun driving around the great roads in the area. We definitely recommend Ignition & we will be sure to hire from them the next time we visit. If you are thinking about it - do it!

As an American, renting a $200k Aston Martin and driving on the wrong side of the road all day was a bit daunting, but Laura was fantastic. She was prompt answering all my questions, showed up on time, and even programmed in routes for our drive. The Aston Vantage is a 2009 model, but it was clean and performed perfectly. We drove the Glenorchy Road which was just fantastic. Laura and her crew did everything they said they would and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. They deserve all the success they receive.

This is the 2nd time we have hired a car off Ignition. This time we hired two different vehicles, one for us and the other for a mate.
Fantastic, well maintained vehicles both times. Laura is an absolute dream to liaise with. I can fully recommend their service and vehicles but now I REALLY want to own a 911. Our Mazda just isn't cutting it

Hired the R8 for the day from Laura and the team at Ignition. It was a day to remember that’s for sure. Laura was lovely and super easy to deal with. The R8 was even better than I had imagined. That car is phenomenal!! I’ll be back for sure!

I Contacted Laura and Ignition Self Drive by internet / email and it all went smoothly from the word go. All promises were kept. A stunning Red Lamborghini Convertible was delivered to the door of my hotel in Queenstown on time. We had the talk.....and departing words were have fun.....that was an understatement.

It was my 25th wedding anniversary and we hired the car for 5 days straight. We went all out.....a dream fulfilled...growing up watching those Ferrari commercials driving on the Italian coast.....sorry they should have had the Red Lambo driving in and around south Island New Zealand..... we had it all.....lakes by our side, snow capped mountains....bridges....autumn leaves, hills and valleys and winding roads....at the end of each destination a beautiful scenic winery or restaurant and the drive home was just as good.

I have travelled the world and done many luxurious holidays but my wife and I (who isn't the biggest car fan) we loved every moment and my wife said "the best thing you did was hire this car"

Thankyou Laura and Thankyou Ignition self drive.
We will be back....maybe the Audi R8 next time?

Laura was so pleasant to deal with. She was punctual, attentive and made the whole experience smooth. I got to experience the beautiful drive in the exotic Audi R8. No better way to explore New Zealand! Unforgettable experience! Highly recommend Ignition!!
