Rental car: There are a number of car rental companies at Auckland Airport but most of them expect to have their cars returned so do not allow a one-way trip to Whangarei. Compare rental car prices here
Taxi: A taxi ride from Auckland Airport to Whangarei would cost hundreds of dollars so we do not recommend this. If you still wish to consider this option, we suggest that you get several quotes from different taxi companies from the taxi stand outside the International Terminal.
