coach from christchurch airport to kaikoura


I will be arriving Christchurch airport at 10.30 and would like to take a coach direct from airport to Kaikoura.

Please advise if there are any such coach services and if, yes, who is the tour company plying this route. Thanks

Intercity has a bus departing 4pm from the city - this would allow plenty of time for you to get into the city. Not knowing what date you plan to travel, I did a search for Oct 24th which shows the bus fare to Kaikoura is $1 - these $1 fares never last long.

You could try a Google search to see if anything else is available.

Best of luck :)

Is there a coach from Kaikoura to Christchurch airport

I hope to stay one night in Kaikoura on Feb 11 having explored south island for a few days (not long enough I fear)

my flight back home to London is 19.35 on Feb 12 (via Auckland) so have to get to airport say 15,00

thank you

There appear to be only afternoon services with Intercity, the earliest arriving in Chch at 3:25pm. Does your flight LEAVE CHC at 4:00pm or at 7:35? Have you tried Naked Bus?
