By Shore Shuttles Airport to Door (the fastest option):

SHORE SHUTTLES LTD

Ph: 64 9 480 0248

Email: shoreshuttles@xtra.co.nz

An airport to door service, which must be pre-booked with email. They require flight number and credit card details and you will be met within the airport building. The driver holds a card with your name on it as you emerge from the arrivals hall and then helps with your luggage. Cost: About NZ$75 for two people. We normally use this operator when we travel with luggage. The ride over the harbour bridge can be a great introduction to Auckland. The ride takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on traffic.

Taxis are also available at the airport and are about twice the cost of Shore Shuttles.
