Travel Guide Oceania Polynesia New Zealand North Island Hawke's Bay Region



Hawke's Bay is world-renowned for its superb wines, especially red varieties. Set along the east coast of North Island, New Zealand, Hawke's Bay attracts many visitors in search of a fine drop. The towns of Napier and Hastings are both known for their Art Deco architecture.



Getting There

By Plane

Hawke's Bay Airport (IATA: NPE, ICAO: NZNR) is 8km North of the city and mainly serves domestic destinations. There are daily flights to Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Gisborne, Tauranga, Hamilton and Palmerston North. International charter flights can be arranged for aircraft with fourteen or less people on board with prior arrangement.



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.
