What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Wellington Ace rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Wellington?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Wellington's minimum age to rent a car?
Ace's minimum age to rent a car in Wellington is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Ace's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Wellington?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wellington. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to . Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Ace require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Ace does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Ace will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Ace rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Ace. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wellington definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Wellington.
Does Wellington Ace offer one-way car rentals?
Ace offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
