Getting There

By Plane

Queenstown Airport (ZQN) is technically located in Frankton and serves the Queenstown area. This airport handles more then 700,000 passengers a year and has limited international service to towns like Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Only flights to Sydney are year round. There is daily service to Christchurch, Auckland, Wellington and Rotorua year round. It is possible to take helicopter and charter flights to Milford Sound.



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.
