Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at some frequently questions you may have when renting a car from Ace.


Slow it down with a trip to the Botanic Gardens

If you’re an avid traveller you have probably seen some botanic gardens in your time. However, this is so much more than a few pretty flowers and trees. These massive gardens could be your backdrop for a full day as you explore everything it has to offer. Enjoy a one hour walk up an extinct volcano, visit the aviary and chat to the birds, gaze at the statues or wander among the trees on a series of easy, medium and hard trails. There’s a café on site if all that walking brings about an appetite, but we’d much prefer a nice picnic spread on the grass. 

Get a glimpse or rare wildlife

There are plenty of animals to see in this region of NZ from penguins and sea lions to albatross and seals. If you’re hoping to get a look on your own, go for a stroll along the beach. Your best bets are heading along the Otago Peninsula. If you’re not having much luck, there are a range of wildlife tours given by guides who know exactly where to look. 

Pump those legs

If your legs can handle a bit more punishment, hire a bike and go for a ride. There are plenty of trails to choose from that will give you exquisite views of the city. For those who prefer a gentler ride, the compact city offers flat runs to enjoy. If you’re serious about your cycling or mountain biking, you can kick it up a notch and explore the trails in the surrounding countryside. We recommend Signal Hill; it’s approximately a 40-minute ride from the city, offering incredible views of the city and a downhill track that must be experienced.

Just walk

They say the best things in life are free, and that’s certainly true in this gorgeous city. Put on those comfortable shoes and simply explore on foot. You’re sure to find something amazing to catch your eye on every corner. Trust us, even the train station is spectacular. 

From the extraordinary Victorian and Edwardian architecture to beautiful gardens and great places to eat, a walk around Dunedin will have you set for the day. If you’re looking for a bit more structure, there are walking trails to give you a bit more direction. We recommend the street art walk, which takes around 90 minutes and features a series of impressive art works on massive walls. You can pick up the trail map at an i-SITE Visitor Information Centre or take part in a guided tour. 

Check out one of the world’s steepest residential streets

Baldwin street is a must see for tourists. It’s seriously steep and was recognised by the Guinness World Records for over a decade as the steepest street before being taken over in 2019. While it’s not technically the steepest anymore, it’s still a great addition to itineraries. Race your friends or kids to the top and prepare yourself for that burn in your calves. 

A much-loved tradition for many years was the yearly Jaffa race, which attracted massive crowds to launch a sea of chocolate racers. Bring along a packet of Jaffas and recreate the race yourself.

No matter where you end up, you’re sure to fall in love with the charm and beauty of Dunedin.
