Airport Shuttle Services
One option to get to or from the airport is to catch a shuttle.
Ready2Roll Tours & Transfers will take you
right to your destination.
The current fixed fare is $60 within Rotorua. You share
the shuttle with other passengers but it can be booked exclusively also.
Taxi chits and all major credit cards are accepted for payment. Just ask your friendly driver.

If budget is a consideration, buses run between the central city and airport every half hour beginning at 6.40am. The last bus
of the day leaves the airport at 6.10pm.
It will cost $2.80 at the present time to get into or out from the center of Rotorua.
When flying in, the i-Site (Rotorua Tourism information center) is a good place
to get off the bus. You will easily recognise the stop because the building (as
in the photo) is tudor looking. Not in view on the right is a clock
This is the central hub for buses with quite a number of backpackers, motels and hotels within a few blocks of the i-site.
Rental Car Services
A number of car rental companies can be found at Rotorua Airport; Budget, Avis, Thrifty, Europcar and Hertz. All are well-known and trusted brands in New Zealand.
Input your dates on the form below and Drivenow, a comparison website, will bring up all makes and models available for your dates. Using a comparison search engine like this makes
the job a whole lot easier.
The only one I have personal knowledge of is Budget. Having made use
of their services a number of times, the vehicles were in good
condition, clean, smelt great and there were no problems at all.
Xquizit Limousines & Tours will meet you
at the airport, deliver you to your destination and deliver you back to
Xquizit's Airport Limousine transfers are not confined purely to Rotorua
though. Also included are Auckland, Tauranga, Taupo and Hamilton
In addition, Xquizit Limousines & Tours offer various tour and corporate services.
This business is owned and operated by locals Anne and Brian
Norton. I must have first met Anne a few years after they began their
business in 2004. She is a lovely woman who is passionate and committed
to both her business and her clients.
Further enquiries can be made at Xquizit's website.

Rotorua Airport Parking
With over 400 long and short term outdoor spaces, Rotorua airport parking is so plentiful you don't even have to book. If you want to pop out of town for a time and have your vehicle handy for your return, it's a good option. Located out front of the terminal, the area has security fencing, good lighting and CCTV coverage. It wouldn't even be a 100m walk to the furthest park. Those with disabilities are catered for in both long and short term parking sections.
