The staff were really helpful both at pickup and drop off. Pickup was really busy as everyone arrived at the same time to collect their cars. The shuttle back to the airport was great.

The car was extremely clean upon pick up, and as described, or better. Unfortunately there was an issue with outdated information on Ace's pick up instructions in our pick up location. After some initial difficulty and being unable to get a hold of Ace rental in Greymouth, NZ, staff were very responsive to our difficulties and chased up the company, seemingly straight away, to confirm the correct pick up process.
