Airport transportation + ATMs

What are the options for transportation from AUCKLAND airport directly to the hotel in the city center?...(no bus) And approx. prices.

Are there ATMs in the airport?

Is one night enough in Franz Joseph? We have booked an early glacier hike. Do we need 2days to see the area?

Should we book Milford Sound boat tickets now? We will be there at the end of March.

Thanks !

Welcome to TA. If you don't want to take a bus then there are always taxis (quite expensive as AKL is quite a long way from the CBD). Somebody here has mentioned "Discount taxis".

1 night is not really enough time at FJG if you are doing a glacier hike. Which direction are you heading after the hike? If south, then it is pretty much a full day's drive to Wanaka or Queenstown. If you are heading north and staying at Hokitika or Greymouth then you could manage only 1 night but remember you might be soaking wet/sweaty/stiff/tired after the hike and driving for 3 hr straight after is not the best plan. Far better to jump into a hot pool or shower & relax for the evening.

No need to book Milford cruise until you arrive in NZ.

I agree that two nights would be best for you to really enjoy the FJG experience. There's no need to book a Milford Cruise until you get to NZ. It's good to get a weather forecast closer to the time especially if you've a choice of days.

Hi again nan,

Sorry, I also meant to say that there are plenty of ATM machines through the airport which accept all major credit cards. There is also a currency exchange in the centre of the first floor.
