We have used this company on several previous occasions and until this year all had gone well. However this year our experience was very different. Despite having booked a 0 - 3 years vehicle for a 5 week rental period the car we were given at Auckland airport was in poor condition with 160000 km on the clock. As no suitable alternative vehicle was available we reluctantly had to take it. Within 24 hours the car had broken down with a fault which the roadside repair guy said was potentially dangerous and should have been detected in the pre release check. We then had to wait 48 hours for a replacement vehicle to be supplied and had lots of communication difficulties. We subsequently sent several emails to Ace requesting compensation for the period we were without a vehicle but to date have not received a response. We shall not therefore be using this company again.

Would not recommend cars are old and scruffy ours had done nearly 200000 km and it stunk like homeless people had been living in it ( had to buy an air freshener) and they gave us a GPS that didn’t hold its charge had to use phone instead very unprofessional and Auckland staff very unfriendly find a better option it would be worth the extra money

I was going to do a relocation of an Ace rental car and it did not work because the staff said my credit card is not a credit card! Staff was really rude, unwilling to find a solution. My card has been accepted in many rental companies with no issue. I found the staff was challenging the nature of my credit card to impose their insurance policies on me, when I had already purchased insurance with a specialized company. An extremely bad customer experience with Ace rentals. And a very poor conversation on what a credit card is, with a stubborn person not willing to check any information.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY - After calling all 3 phone numbers on the confirmation sheet we had to call Auckland head office to get someone to pick us up. More than 35 minutes later someone arrived who had no customer service skills stating "we were on the phone". No apology. Nothing. The office is a shabby and untidy shed. Our vehicle was dirty, covered in cobwebs, had seat knobs missing (you couldn't adjust the passenger seat back), key remote didn't work and the key itself was very loose in its holder. The car sounded like it needed a new gearbox. Overall the experience was abysmal. Next time I'll use GO Rentals again, they cost a bit more but the service is slick and professional and the vehicles top knotch.

Booked Ace Rental Cars through rentalcars.com as we have used them in Christchurch with no problem. We were left waiting at the airport for 40 minutes, we phoned several times (there’s also a technical issue with the phone system as we were cut off constantly) and kept being told the shuttle shouldn’t be too long because they’re very busy. When we were finally collected, no apology and arrived at the office to find two other shuttles not being used. The staff were overwhelmed and clearly the process is poorly managed. The car’s front bumper was damaged and overall the condition was poor and the car was old and in need of updating. We have used many other rental companies and always found a fast and efficient service with modern and well serviced stock, even when choosing low price. It is highly recommended to stay clear of this company when choosing a good value option.

We booked a number of rentals with Ace through Rentalcars.com for our three month stay in New Zealand. The first we were given was a very tired Nissan with well over 100,000 on the clock and smell to match. The second was supposed to be a Toyota with capacity for two suitcases but turned out to be a tired Mazda with boot space for only 1 suitcase !! There was no choice apparently. On the second day of the rental the central locking froze and we were unable to use the car until someone passing suggested we put the remote in the sun for a few minutes - hey presto it worked - but a few days later the car again locked us out. We called Ace who put us onto the AA and when the mechanic turned up he diagnosed a faulty remote control and showed us how to override the remote.
We lost a lot of time over these delays and the absence of the offer of a replacement car so we cancelled all of the future bookings with Ace Car Rental.
They should be called “Rent a Wreck” for the knackered cars they push out to unwitting customers.
I would NEVER rent from Ace EVER again !!
The staff are lovely but their cars are total crap.
