A traveller's guide to New Zealand cities

New Zealand’s spectacular cities might not be particularly large compared to other nations – the country as a whole only has a population of just over 4 million, after all – but that doesn’t mean they are anything less than superb. In fact, Aotearoa has a wonderful small town feel like few other places on Earth, mixed with gorgeous scenery, exciting adventure and everything else you could want in a road trip holiday.

So where to start?

A quick guide to: Wellington

Many think that because Auckland is the country’s largest city, it is also its capital. That’s not true, however, as the culinary and arts centre of New Zealand is its primary city: Wellington.

Whether you’re passing through on an end-to-end road trip holiday of Aotearoa or you want to explore the southern North Island on its own, this great place is one of the country’s must-visit destinations.

Wellington is the world’s southernmost capital city.

Here are 10 fun activities to help you explore Wellington and its surrounds.

Why should you choose a NZ rental car over a tour bus?

 

When you decide to take an exciting holiday to a country such as New Zealand, you’ll likely want to explore more than one region. That’s because there is, quite simply, more awesome stuff to do here than you could ever pack into a single escape! However, if you are planning on hitting the roads on your next Aotearoa adventure, you’ll be faced with a pretty big question: Should you book a rental car or tour bus?

With 8 locations conveniently situated in some of our country’s top tourism hubs, you can imagine that here at Ace Rental Cars, we’re a pretty big fan of the former. Here are two reasons why we think you’ll agree with us.
