Getting to New Zealand


New Zealand is an island nation and if you’re coming from another country you’ll need to cross the ocean to reach us. Your two options to reach us, therefore, are by air or sea.

Flights to New ZealandFlights to New Zealand

New Zealand has 7 international airports as well as a network of smaller domestic airports dotted around the country. When booking your flight to New Zealand, remember that most campervan hire companies have their main bases (or depots) in Auckland and Christchurch so your best bet is to fly to or from these airports if you plan to pick up a campervan or motorhome rental when you arrive.

Which airports you choose to fly in and out of will depend on which parts of New Zealand you’d like to visit, and how much time you have.
