I like the idea of earning airpoints where possible. This is the second time I've attempted to make a booking and the first time ended up with me calling Air NZ to book for me.

 

I can successfully login but cannot complete a booking on their website before I'm redirected to home page and (what appears to be) logged out. When I log in and attempt make a new booking, I notice my previous attempts are displayed as "pending" bookings in some right hand section.

 

Since I'm out of the country right now, I'd rather not call Air NZ because it'll cost me an arm and leg. However, I'm curious to know if the problem is just with me and if anyone has used the site to (successfully) book a transfer or if this is a common problem.

Are you using an adblocker?

 

I tried their service a couple of times and found out that it would cost me $20 - $25 more than the local Wellington Combined fare from home to airport (which is already around $60) and I would get a very small number of Air Dollars back. Not worth it really.

Where are you?

 

The prices on the NZ taxi website are terrible. You might earn a few APD but in somewhere like AKL you can easily pay $30 or so more for the privilege.

It's $45 for the two of us at the moment (airport to central). I'm not fussed about the airpoints but it's inconvenient since I'm stuck with doing everything online. I'll probably end up booking with super shuttle since it'll end up costing the same.

All the major companies in Auckland have flat rates now.

 

This was the latest prices from yesterday when I was passing through.

Just Uber...

 

Wellington to Johnsonville is always around $30-40. Especially now that Wellington has Uber parking, and Auckland they come in to the Taxi parks too, not sure on ChCh.

 

Back up in Palmy North now with no Uber, and its cost $30 to go from basically middle of town to Airport - 10 minute trip.
