Airport Transfers in Auckland
Auckland's city centre sits between two motorways and the water, providing easy access to other destinations in New Zealand by road and ferries from the city's wharves. It's only about 2km long (from the motorway to the water), so it is manageable to get around on foot, however it is a hilly city.
To make getting around easier, there are multiple transport options for visitors.
Types of transport. City buses, trains and ferries operate under Auckland Transport (AT). If you're hoping to go out to the wineries at Waiheke Island or the reserve at Rangitoto Island, you can hop on a ferry at the ferry terminal in the city. If you're hoping to go further afield, there are InterCity buses available from the Sky City terminal and Naked Buses available from near the ferry wharves. These buses aren't part of the Auckland Transport system, but can help you with day trips to destinations that are just a couple hours away.
Paying for transport. You can use the AT HOP card to pre-pay for travel on buses, trains and ferries. Additionally, buses accept cash. You can purchase ferry tickets on the ferry or before boarding. Cash is not accepted on trains, but you can buy tickets from top-up machines before boarding.
Best apps for getting around. The AT Mobile app lets you create trips using transit, notifies you when the bus is one stop away and reminds you to get off when it is close to your stop.
From the airport: The easiest public transport option from Auckland Airport is the SkyBus. It's $17 one way and runs 24-hours a day, with multiple drop-off locations in the CBD.
Taxi. Taxis can be pre-booked over the phone, with an app or hailed from the side of the road. You can find taxis outside the arrivals area of the international terminal by door eight. Fares range from $75 to $90 to the city.
Uber. Uber is available throughout Auckland, including the airport. Airport to the city centre fares are $38-$51.
Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty are all located in the international terminal next to arrivals on the ground floor. You can pre-book a car or book on arrival.
For a driver and car at a cheaper price, Uber is available to and from the Auckland airport. A $4 airport pickup fee is added.
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
