Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at some frequently questions you may have when renting a car from Ace.


Auckland Airport is the start of some fantastic New Zealand adventures. From the moment you land on the tarmac, your North Island adventure starts.

Take note as you fly into the city, as there is nothing quite like that iconic Auckland skyline. With two harbours, this ‘City of Sails’ is wonderfully unique, with a rich maritime history that lends itself to some beautiful architecture and experiences.

Whether you’re staying in Auckland the entirety of your trip or this city is the starting point to some further North Island adventures, having a car will make your holiday that much easier. Thankfully, Ace Auckland Airport is located conveniently for you to pick up a rental car once you’ve landed in New Zealand. We’ll have you driving off to your holiday destination in no time at all.

See Auckland City with Ace

We’ve already mentioned that Auckland has plenty of maritime history, but the city also has a thriving culture and heritage that you could explore while you’re here. Maybe head to one of the many museums that call this city their home, like the Auckland War Memorial Museum, which explores the military history of New Zealand. Another favourite is the Auckland Gallery Toi O, which has plenty of exhibitions from all over the country and world.

Auckland is set out in different suburbs, which you can drive around and explore at your own pace while here. While visiting each area, like Ponsonby, Newtown, Glen Innes, St Heliers, and more, stop for a bite to eat and taste the local produce. Some standouts include Williams Eatery, Bestie Cafe, and Remedy Coffee, all of which have stellar reviews and standout cuisine. For a sweet treat, a visit to Giapo is a must-do. This world-famous ice creamery delights visitors daily with its unique creations and daring flavours. Bring your appetite and a sense of fun, because the portion sizes will not disappoint.

Finally, many Auckland tourists delight in the mighty Sky Tower. Easily the most prominent landmark in Auckland, this tower dominates the skyline at a whopping 328 metres high. See the city above from their observation deck – it’s a beautiful view. Perhaps those who want an adrenaline rush can try out the AJ Hackett SkyWalk and SkyJump. These are thrilling activities that delight visitors every day: walk around the exterior of the sky tower 198-metres above ground, or be bold enough to jump off the side of the building on a bungee.

Hit the Road with Ace

There are plenty of road trips around Auckland.

Maybe drive to Piha, the birthplace of New Zealand surfing. With gorgeous black sand, huge surf, and the Lion’s Rock as the focal point, it certainly has the dramatic and rugged coastline for which New Zealand is famous. While it is a surfer’s haven, there are also swim spots patrolled by lifeguards in the summer months – but always be cautious as the waters can be wild.

Further afield is the Waikato Region. This region is as rugged as it is beautiful, with areas like Raglan, Matama, and of course, Waitomo all being prominent features. Raglan boasts a beautifully rugged coast, whereas Matama features green pastures so iconic that it is the backdrop to Hobbiton in the Lord of the Rings movies. Drive to Matama to see Hobbiton in the flesh. Finally, Waitomo is home to the glowworm caves, which impress thousands of visitors yearly. This area is just a three-hour drive from Auckland, so maybe stay the night to appreciate all the areas of impressive beauty.

Auckland Airport is the start of some amazing North Island adventures. From the city itself to the coast close by, you will have a thrilling trip from start to finish. Whether your holiday will stay in the Auckland region, or you’ll go on to explore the rest of New Zealand, we hope you have a fantastic trip with Ace Auckland Airport.
