Prior to landing in New Zealand, one would usually have a plan as to how to get to their destination once the plane touches the ground. However, for first time NZ visitors, doing so can be a bit challenging.
The good news? There are many airport services to choose from, from buses, taxis, shuttles, private limo hires such as Xquizit Limousines & Tours, to dial-a-driver and much more. All these transport services have their respective pros and cons.
Therefore, here are some things you might want to consider to help you book the right vehicle for your trip.
Are you in the country for some business? Or are you travelling for leisure? The purpose of your visit is one of the greatest factors that affect your choice of vehicle. If you do not have the time, hiring and booking a car before your arrival is a more practical choice, not to mention a convenient one.
But if you have time and want to explore the city, public transportation like buses and shuttles can be an option.
Travelling in a huge group of say 20-30 people would be hard to manage as compared to going with just your spouse or your child. When travelling in huge groups, it is better to hire a private vehicle to help you get around.
If you are here for businesses, then hiring your own limo or hailing a taxi would be more practical instead of trying to navigate your way around the city.
Do you travel heavy? Or did you bring your whole closet for your OOTDs shots? Carrying five huge pieces of luggage and chasing the bus is nearly impossible, especially when you are travelling alone. Thus, you should also consider your luggage in choosing your mode of transportation.
Keep these considerations in mind and never have a hard time getting to your destination from the airport once again.
