Getting There

By Plane

Nelson Airport (NSN) is a small airport located near to Nelson. Right now commercial flights only fly domestically and there are flights with Air Nelson to/from Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington, with Air2there to/from Paraparaumu, and with Soundsair to/from Wellington. Currently international private jets can also land and take off from the airport.



Getting Around

By Car

Some of the other options to rent cars include the following companies:

Before you rent, ask the rental company if they have any relocation deals. Even in high season there can be a bottle neck of cars and campers at certain locations that the hire company is willing to offer discounted sometimes free rental to move the vehicle, possibly right to where you want to go. The only down side is the vehicle often has a time restriction, but even this is negotiable, depending on how much the rental company needs the vehicle moved.
