Ace Rental cars comparison

Compare Ace NZ Car Rental Prices

Ace Rental Cars is one of the largest and longest established discount car rental companies in New Zealand. They have been operating in NZ for over 30 years and also have depots in Australia.

Ace is backed by Hertz, the world's largest car rental brand, who bought Ace in 2011. Ace operates as an independent subsidiary focusing on the budget end of the market.  

Ace keeps costs down by having rental locations outside of airport terminals and provides complimentary shuttle transfers for clients. Ace appeals to a broad range of tourists, especially independent travellers looking for low cost rental cars.

Vehicles in the Ace rental car fleet vary depending on the category you book. Premium category vehicles are the newest and 2+ years old. At the other end of the spectrum are older, high mileage 'Super Saver' category cars. Typically these are 10+ years old and have clocked up 180K to 220K kilometres. These are popular with backpackers and others on a tight budget.

See below for extensive information about Ace depots.

Shopping around for the best car rental deal can be frustrating. Of course, you could take the old approach and spend your time searching through the Ace website for available rental cars.

Then, to be sure you've got a good deal, you'll need to spend even more time hunting through other car rental firms' websites comparing prices.
