How to Go to Auckland
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
There are no direct nonstop flights to Auckland from India. But there are multiple connecting ones that you can avail. One of the best India to Auckland flights is flown by Thai Airlines from Delhi, which takes around 16 hours 35 minutes to reach via Bangkok. Malaysia Airlines does it in 17 hours 50 minutes via Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Airlines takes 19 hours 20 minutes via Singapore. These three names are the most frequent carriers. Others are Qantas, Air India, jet Airways and air New Zealand, but they mostly operate jointly with another airline. India to Auckland flight time from Mumbai is actually even lesser – 16 hours 15 minutes is the best time provided by Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand together. From Chennai, it is 16 hours 30 minutes by Singapore Airlines and Emirates.
Auckland has a very efficient underground railway network operated by Auckland Transport. It has four lines – eastern, southern, western and the Onehunga line, which serve all around Auckland. From India, there are no railway links directly to Auckland for the same reason there is no roadway. But once you land in Auckland, this railway system will be at your service.
Auckland roadways are very well-maintained and the transportation systems are ideal for local tourism. Britomart is the central hub for all the major transportations, including bus and ferry. Different carriers like SkyBus, Northern Busway, CityLink and InnerLink Bus all have their hubs here at Britomart. Across Britomart Station, there is the Auckland Ferry Terminal as well. However, there are no roadways to go from India to Auckland directly, for the obvious reason that New Zealand is an island country.

Trip to New ZealandOur Trip to New Zealand was a well planned trip. We could customize as per our requirements. There was lot of positive support from the memorable vacations staff before the start of trip. I was very much pleased by the staff and had a satisfying hassle free booking experience. We had made all the necessary payment to our agent before the start of the trip. As we reached NZ, we started experiencing the problems, slowly, one after another, solely because of poor agent selection and lack of coordination between the staff here in india and the staff and third party members in new zealand. There were a lot of places where we faced hassles and we were literally asked to stand outside the queue since our payment was not properly done to the appropriate authorities there in NZ. 1) At the car rental office the payment was not done on time, we were stranded outside the queue and only after repeatedly calling our agent, the payment was made the the car rental office. 2) The same thing happened again and again at the south island car rental office, skytower sightseeing, gandola ride, and the glacier hot pools (inspite of continuous telephonic reassuring by the agents, that it wont happen again) . 3.) At Franz alpine retreat hotel, there was no breakfast available, although we had pre booked all our hotel rooms with complimentary breakfast. The same thing happened at our coromondel stay. At both these places we had to literally cook our own breakfast before we started our sightseeing. My biggest disappointment was that i had to face lot of hassles for no fault of mine. There was sheer incoordination between the agents.Because we faced so much hassles throughout our trip, the agents were kind enough to arrange a complimentary dinner for us at a good indian restaurant on the last day of our trip. Other than the above mentioned hassles, the trip was a well organised one. I enjoyed the trip and i thank memorable vacations for organising my trip. The hotel stays at queenstown, Milford cruise and auckland were the best part. My only request is to kindly improve upon your services specially the ones which i have mentioned so that other customers dont suffer. I would surely use your services for future international trips .

Trip to New ZealandWe had planned a customized tour to New Zealand which was coordinated and well arranged by Hub Holidays and Travel Triangle. The purpose of this holiday was for our Honeymoon, Hub Holiday agent (Prashant) had appropriately suggested the itinerary making it more memorable. There were certain phases of our trip planning which required frequent follow ups from us, that can be better organised. Nevertheless throughout the trip we had continuous support from Prashant and Devarka, sorting out any hiccups. Thanks again !!
