Whangarei is the northernmost city in New Zealand and the regional capital of Northland Region. It is part of the Whangarei District, a local body created in 1989 from the former Whangarei City, Whangarei County and Hikurangi Town councils, to administer both the city proper and its hinterland. The city population was estimated to be 52,600 in June 2019, an increase from 47,000 in 2001 – Source Wikipedia
Booking online is probably most preferred from the bookings we see come through our confirm transportation page. It comes down to personal preference, but we still prefer all information sent via email if not booking online. We follow this procedure to ensure everything is correct, and we use your information from your email provided to create our booking confirmation.
From Auckland Airport it usually takes 2 1/2 hours to the Whangarei town basin, and if you have a door to door service, then it depends if you have made the multi-stop booking or booked private ride.
The lowest price is our multi-stop service which is excellent for people who don’t mind sharing, and they are flexible with time, our booking system can work that out for you.
Yes, certainly. Our multi-stop service is pre-booked travel at a much lower rate per person, so you will be travelling with other passengers at the same time as you would on your flight. Your travel companions might not be on the same plane so you, might have some reasonable wait times if we faced with flight delays. Every journey is booked as multi-stop unless you specify private on your booking.
Private shuttle hire is very popular for couples or families who feel they want the quicker option to get home. Once you have been through processing and you enter the airport public area, our driver will be waiting for you at the pre-chartered area holding our Book A Ride signage, and then we can leave to take you home and not wait for other passengers.
Yes, we do, but booking is essential so we can allocate them to your booking. We have two car seats and one booster available, and we can store your car seats if you prefer—this all free of charge to the community.
Yes, you certainly can. We have it as an option on our booking page to pay on pickup or if you are confirming by email then note that (pay on pickup) before sending it onto us. Then we can send a booking confirmation.
Yes, we do. One trip to the airport from your pickup location we can transport 22 bags and 11 passengers to give you an idea. That’s 11 full-sized suitcases, and 11 carry on. But the trailer is allocated per booking and only if needed that day.
Once you have confirmed your booking, we will send automated emails before you travel explaining your meet and greet pick up procedure and contact details of your driver. Well informed.
