Queenstown Airport Car Rental Location Information

If any city in New Zealand is responsible for the country’s reputation for combining stunning natural landscapes with adrenaline-pumping thrill rides, it’s Queenstown. It goes without saying that action sport enthusiasts and thrill-junkies choose to spend most of their time here at the lakeside city when visiting NZ – and for good reason. 

So, pack an extra pair of undies, make sure to have a light breakfast and set out into this stunning Alpine-looking village for a memorable and action-packed experience.

Allow an additional 30 to 40 minutes prior to the flight check-in time for car rental return & transfer from our Airport branches to the International and domestic airport terminals.

Park outside our branch, lock the car and place keys in dropbox at the front door.

After-hours pickups are unavailable at our Queenstown City & Airport branch.

If you are running late and you won't be able to collect your rental car at the allocated time, it is important to get in touch with the branch you are collecting from so that we can make alternate arrangements. Call our toll free number at 0800 502 277 and we will do our best to accommodate.

Ace Rental Cars is an ‘Off Airport’ company. Our office is located just minutes away from the Queenstown Airport Terminals. We provide a shuttle, to transfer all our customers to our office where vehicles are collected and returned.

Shuttle Collection

Ace Rental Cars offers a pick-up and drop-off service to our branches for customers who are collecting or returning their car rental.

Explore Queenstown with Ace

Queenstown is a great place to visit no matter what the weather is like. In the summertime, it’s an alpine haven, with plenty of hikes, water-based activities, and summer sunshine to enjoy. In winter, it’s a skiing paradise, with Coronet Peak and the Remarkables providing many days worth of fun.

The natural attractions here are some of the best you’ll come across, so if you’re a keen adventurer, you can make the most of it. Why not drive across to one of the many trails that are sprinkled throughout the town? There are heaps to choose from, like the Tiki Train, the Queenstown Hill Walking Track, the Ben Lomond Track, and The Queenstown Trail to just name a few. Just remember that these tracks may be covered in snow in the cooler months, so plan your trip according to the seasons.

For many, Queenstown is simply the best place on earth to get that much-loved adrenaline rush. And, there’s no better place to seek the thrills than at one of the many AJ Hackett bungy jump locations throughout Queenstown. Experience an adrenaline hit like never before with choices like Kawarau Bridge, the Nevis Swing and the Nevis Bungy. Be brave, test your limits, and face your fears - it’ll make for an epic memory.

And of course, no trip to Queenstown is complete without a burger at Fergburger. This popular eatery has a heap of burger options, including veggie and vegan, so head here for a feast! It’s a pretty easy place to find - just look for the long queue on Shotover Street and take your place in the line. It’ll be worth it.

Hit the Road in your Rental Car

Queenstown is at the centre of some seriously pretty nature.

Drive out from the town limits and head to the mighty Milford Sound. Straight out of a storybook, the mirror lakes and misty mountains are out of this world - and that’s before you even get to the main view! Milford Sound has been described as the eighth wonder of the world and with good reason - book a boat tour when you arrive and see it for yourself.

Queenstown Airport is the start of some incredible adventures. Perhaps it’s your gateway to the South Island or your final destination on an unforgettable New Zealand holiday. Either way, Queenstown is worth visiting - and you’ll want to come back again and again after your holiday here is over.
