I am hoping that Zapper and other NZ experts can tell me what to do here. We leave for a three week vacation (self drive) in early March. Lot's of help in formulating our itinerary from Zapper and others on this site - gold stars and thanks. Here is the latest question:
We fly into Auckland and want to rent a car which we will drive throughout both islands. The booking company says we need to cross from one island to the other by ferry and the costs involve both passenger fees and the car fee. They also mentioned there was only one car company Maui that is allowed to cross over. Any thoughts on where we should fly roundtrip to Auckland or fly into Auckland and then drop off the car in Queenstown and then fly to Auckland from there? Hope this makes sense. I am all planned out.
You are the best. Mapita
