The largest and busiest airport is the Auckland International Airport. An average cab ride from the airport to Auckland’s CBD will take approximately 30 minutes. Air links exist between all the main cities and towns.

Ground transport

The variety and standard of public transport varies between cities and provinces. Most cities and towns have public bus services, all offer taxis and rental car services and a smaller number have train services.

For the business traveller, taxis, rental cars and air travel are recommended for convenience reasons.


Pre-booking travel and accommodation, especially between major centres is advisable (e.g. Auckland to Wellington). 


Restaurants and food vendors are abundant and offer a wide range of food at reasonable prices. For restaurant guides and reviews, visit Menus and ATEED (Auckland Restaurants).


Tipping for services is optional and is generally not expected.
