How to Go to Auckland

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

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.

By Train

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.

By Road

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.

    Monika's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Due to corona spread all was locked down. We were forced by US govt to cancel further travel in the city. Request sent for refunding our money back. But not heard on it so far. Corona is the only memory

    Birinder's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Overall a well organised trip of 16 nights in Newzealand that took us through both North and South Islands. Bella Vista Motel and Appartments at Christchurch is not suitably located near to a market and also rooms were very small. Milford Sound Cruise and 90 mile Beach Visit. Weather could be a spo
    il sport and our Franz Josep Glacier Walk & Kaikura Whale watching trips got cancelled.

    Tarun's 12 days trip to Auckland

    Raunak provided us with all that we required for our trip to New Zealand. He is energetic and was always ready to get us the best deals in our budget. Everything was taken care of before hand - car rentals, hotel booking, as well as reservations for our activities and we didn't have to worry about a
    nything. There was a slight hiccup due to bad weather - some better planning could have been better. However the refund for the cancelled event was provided to me on time - so kudos for that. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend Wanderbird Holidays!

    Yug's 10 days trip to Auckland

    Raunak Pathak from Wanderbird Holidays was our agent from Travel Triangle for our trip to New Zealand. Raunak helped us plan with the best Itinerary, whether it was wrt the activities covered, hotels stayed or rental car selected. Everything was perfect. He ensured we are aware of all the rules or s
    tuffz that are important for a tourist to know. It was never that we had to do any follow ups. The vouchers of hotel and activities were all received well before time. It was great of him to call us and discuss the itinerary in detail for an hour just before the trip ensuring we are well versed with the itinerary. His efforts showed he did a part greater than what an agent would generally do.

    Hyderabad

    Ashishjain's 7 days trip to Auckland

    It was overall a good experience. However, I would like to convey that Pickyourtrail has been really exceptional in ticketing, but in the planning of the overall trip it was poor. Follow-ups with the bookings and transfers that are required in any foreign trip was neglected, which I would consider
    as a big blunder from their end. I had faced issues like our vouchers being considered as incorrect in few of the places and in some, the agents to whom we were connected on the trip were not even aware of the booking. Their support team has a lot of people for sure but there is a lack of proper response from them. Our itinerary changes were not updated in the app which again created confusion for their support team who were not even aware of the changes. At the end of the day, there is only one person who gives the right directions and the rest of them just create confusion. I would give another shot in travelling with them only if they decide to go up a notch with travel planning rather than just giving us the tickets/vouchers. Just putting in my honest feedback, Thanks!

    Went for a vacation to North Island in New Zealand in Feb 2020. Wanderbird Holidays were of great help in planning the week long trip. All information and suggestions provided by them regarding hotels, activities, cost, location etc was so accurate, I felt as if they are sitting in NZ and planning m
    y trip for me. Raunak even helped me adjust the budget in ways so that I don't end up wasting money. Highly recommended!
