Getting to Rotorua

Rotorua’s central locations means it’s one of the most accessible cities to get to.

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.
