Getting to Rotorua

Thanks to its central location, Rotorua is a breeze to get to, making it one of the most accessible cities in the country!

Auckland Airport is the closest international airport if you’re travelling from overseas. From there, you’re a short domestic flight away from Rotorua Airport, or a three-hour car ride to the city. 

Rental car agencies such as Hertz, Budget, Avis and/or others are located at both airports.

Transport between the airports is also available via shuttle services or InterCity bus; travel times are slightly longer.

If you’re traveling with your bike and transiting through Rotorua Airport, you’ll find a handy bike assembly/disassembly and wash area onsite. For more information on traveling with your bike, head to Air New Zealand’s information on packing bikes
