Peak Season:

Flights to and from Auckland during the peak season (which runs from December through February) aren’t the cheapest, but they do offer tourists with the best opportunity to soak up all that is New Zealand, given the pleasant and hot weather. If you’re looking to pay less for flights and accommodation, try securing a flight during the spring or autumn months, which falls between September to November and April through June respectively.

 

Off Season:

Auckland’s off-season mainly falls during the months of November and April. These months are much cooler and you might find that hotel and flight prices are considerably cheaper and widely available during these months.

Yes, Auckland’s public transport is very cost effective, efficient, and safe to use. There are a number of buses that transport commuters around the city, but you can also make use of the various water taxis, ferries, and trams.

With a mere 15km from the Auckland International Airport to the city center, there’s a wide variety of options that will get you from the airport to the city center.  You can use the taxis (parked outside the arrival halls at the airport), but it will cost you NZD $50-60 (R500) and can take up to 20 minutes, depending on traffic. You can also take the Super Shuttle which will cost you NZD $30 (R270) but can take up to 1 hour to get you to the city center since it’s a hop-on-hop-off service.
