Frequently Asked Questions

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


Let’s head to the world’s ‘coolest little capital’, Wellington!

Wellington is a hugely popular tourist destination, and it’s not hard to see why. As you fly into Wellington Airport across the Tasman, take note of how beautiful the city skyline and surroundings are. This capital has captured millions of hearts worldwide, and yours will soon be one of them.

Wellington is situated right in the middle of New Zealand. Sitting at the base of the North Island, it’s easy to get to both islands, making it the ideal base location. Of course, once you’ve finished exploring every corner of Wellington, you may well want to head on a road trip of New Zealand, which will be easy if you’re coming from here.

See Wellington with Ace

Wellington is a hub of fantastic culture, history, and nature spots. There is something new and exciting on every corner, which is why it makes for such a popular tourist destination.

The city is home to a terrific events calendar, so if you can organise your trip to coincide with one of these events, you’ll have an even busier schedule of fun and frivolities. You may wish to attend Homegrown, which happens each year along the Wellington waterfront. Embrace some of the best Kiwi music as the waterfront comes alive with locally grown live music. There is also the Coastella Music Festival, Wellington Cup Day, the New Zealand Fringe Festival, and the CubaDupa - a festival that celebrates the trendiest street in the capital, Cuba Street!

Even if you can’t visit during a festival period, you’ll still have a great time in this bustling capital city. Perhaps head to Cuba Street to truly understand what Wellington is all about. A melting pot of culture, art, hospitality and more, there is no better place in the city with a better atmosphere. Enjoy delicious food, drinks, fun, and more all without having to venture away from a single street. It’s something special!

A trip to Wellington just isn’t complete without a visit to Te Papa Tongarewa. Te Papa has been listed as one of Lonely Planet’s Top 500 places in the world, so make room for this in your itinerary while you’re visiting. The museum takes a bi-cultural approach to its exhibitions as it shows life from both perspectives according to the Treaty of New Zealand.

See the South Island in your Rental Car

The South Island is one of the most beautiful places you’ll ever visit, so you should make time to venture across while staying in Wellington. Drive to the ferry terminal and hop on the Inter-Island Ferry across the Cook Strait. You can take your car with you, so there’s no need to rent out a new vehicle for your South Island adventure.

Be sure to spend some time on the upper deck as you journey across the waters. It’s one of the most beautiful boat trips in the world, with the Marlborough Sounds creating an epic backdrop. When you arrive in Picton, you have the entirety of the South Island waiting for you, from Lake Tekapo to Queenstown, Christchurch to Milford Sound, and Mount Cook to Dunedin and Franz Joseph.

Wellington will undoubtedly be a trip to remember. Whether you’re here for a city break, or it’s the start of some bigger adventures, everything will be made easier with a rental car from Ace Wellington Airport.
