Auckland airport to Whitianga

Arriving in Auckland on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 12:50. What are my options to get from here to Whitianga?

I know that Go Kiwi operates a shuttle but it leaves at 14:00 and a delayed flight or time in customs would mean that I would miss the shuttle, which would need to be pre-paid.

Are there any other options other then car rental?

Short answer is no- It's not on a busy bus route, the shuttle will be your best option- have you talked to them to see if they will wait for you. It may be that they give you a little leeway with flights. Our staff often catch a shuttle to Tauranga from the airport and it has waited for them in the past on small delays.

i agree

Whitianga has a small airport but if you can't catch the flight available - need to get car or shuttle-

Or bus to Thames and hitch from there.
