Travel Information

· Lots of people hire cars when they fly into New Zealand so they have the flexibility to explore the beautiful countryside, and you’ll discover that there are lots of international and local companies to choose from at Auckland International Airport. You can hire a car or a camper van when you land, or organise one in advance. Get on State Highway 20, and then take the Urban Route 12 heading towards Auckland, and then hop on State Highway 1. Lastly take exit 427 towards the City Centre to be right in the downtown area.

· The SkyBus is the main service running between the airport and the city, and runs every day. You will pay a fare of about 35NZD ($33), and the journey will take about 35 minutes. Shared-ride shuttles also serve the airport, with the cost and duration of the journey being the same as the SkyBus but the service is door-to-door, which you may find more convenient. Otherwise, you can book airport transfers, which can meet you when you land, and may be better for multiple passengers.

· A taxi will take around half an hour into the city, and you can grab one just outside the terminals. Expect the fare to come to around 75-90NZD ($67-86).
