Book a Rental Car and Pick Up from Taupo Airport

rental cars Taupo

While always a popular tourist destination because of its natural beauty and exciting range of activities (especially for the more adventurous among us), New Zealand has become one of the must-see destinations in the world because of the

Lord of the Rings phenomenon – everyone wants to visit the amazing and dramatic snow-capped mountains and walk along the banks of the pristine lakes that were featured in the series of films. The other huge draw of New Zealand, of course, comes in the form of breath-taking and awe-inspiring attractions and activities such as bungy jumping, jet boating, sky diving and white water rafting.

One of the best places in New Zealand to be based if you’re interested in participating in any of these activities is Lake Taupo, which is situated in the middle of the North Island and is the country’s largest freshwater lake (in fact the lake is a similar size to Singapore). The area is jam packed full of interesting scenery and great attractions such as the geothermally heated prawn farm (the only one in the world), volcanos, geysers and some of the best trout fishing in the world.

The lake is in itself a major tourist attraction, and people are often rendered speechless after seeing its beauty from the air when arriving at Taupo Airport, the main airport in the local area. The Airport is centrally located and is very popular as it provides a base for several companies who offer sky diving services and scenic flights.

From Taupo you can board a scenic plane to almost any destination in the country, from the beautiful unspoilt beaches in the North to the spectacular scenery on the South Island. Imagine seeing the wonders of nature from above – it adds a whole new sensory experience then just seeing it from the ground. Taupo Airport also supports and provides private charters and jets, and can provide all the necessary services for truly VIP flying experience.

It is no wonder that the Airport was awarded NZ Regional Airport of the Year Award in 2011. Of course it also provides a range of other services for tourist and locals alike such as information on local attractions, a cafe and a door to door shuttle service. If you are looking for car rental Taupo Airport they can provide that as well.

Driving in New Zealand is one of the best ways to see it’s natural attractions at your own pace, and because there is so little traffic on the roads you can often feel like you have the whole place to yourself! The country has a very well maintained road system, so you will be able to reach any destination that you think looks interesting in safety and comfort.

Visiting New Zealand, or seeing more of its extraordinary natural scenery, is on most people’s list of things do to in life, and a region such as Lake Taupo, with its exceptional airport and exciting range of activities is a great base from which to start exploring!

If you’re in Taupo on holiday or for business, be sure to book your Taupo motel early as this is a particularly popular location in New Zealand.
