Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Christchurch Ace rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Christchurch?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Christchurch?
Ace's minimum age to rent a car in Christchurch is 18. Make sure to check Ace's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Christchurch?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Christchurch. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Christchurch trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent from Ace. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Ace car rental?
Ace does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Ace will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Christchurch. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Ace car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Ace rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Ace.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Christchurch?
Christchurch certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Ace?
Ace offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another Ace. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
