Ignition is owned and operated by Barry and Laura Moore. Born from a love of cars and traveling New Zealand which boasts some of the best and most beautiful drives in the world.
Originally from Scotland Barry and Laura have lived in New Zealand for the past 14 years and now consider themselves die hard Kiwis. Barry has followed his dream since moving to NZ with the launch of M Developments, Queenstown's Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche specialists based in Frankton's industrial area. Being a man who is fanatical about European cars (and his beard) you will not be surprised by the geeky info you find in the cars section of this site.
Barry's expertise in the car world not only means Ignition can offer you superb vehicles that you will love driving but vehicles that are reliable and maintained to a high standard so they and can easily handle that week long road trip that you've always wanted to plan.
Laura has held a career in the corporate world for the past 12 years from training to operations and project work. Although she finds comfort in structure and organisation ultimately she loves the outdoors, meeting new people and having a bit of fun. Her attention to detail means that you will get the same standard of vehicle for a day trip to Wanaka as you will for your Wedding day.
Their love of New Zealand and exploring this amazing country is what created Ignition Self Drive Adventures and now it's your turn to see what all the fuss is about.
Even though we love cars, we love New Zealand more and so for every 1000kms our vehicles travel we fund planting of a tree in New Zealand through Trees That Count. As all our vehicles are tracked via GPS we can easily see the distance covered by our fleet and fund trees to contribute towards offsetting our carbon emissions.
