Directions for your airport taxi to Dunedin

Dunedin International Airport (DUD), also known locally as Momona Airport, is located in the Otago region of New Zealand. The airport sees over 1 million passengers annually, most of whom are visiting the city of Dunedin. DUD Airport is located around 27 km from the city centre, so taking a taxi or private shuttle from Dunedin Airport shouldn’t take longer than 25 minutes to reach your accommodation downtown.

To begin your Dunedin Airport taxi ride, your driver will head northwest along Airport Road, until they reach State Highway 86. They will follow SH 86 for around 5.2 km, before turning left onto State Highway 1. You will continue to follow this major highway for around 20 km, before taking a slight left onto Andersons Bay Road. You will finally take a right onto Princes Street, which will lead you into the city centre of Dunedin. To complete your journey, your Dunedin Airport taxi driver will use the local roads to reach your desired hotel or vacation rental.

Booking your Dunedin taxi from the airport with Welcome Pickups

Although the local Dunedin Airport shuttle drivers work 24 hours a day, during peak travel times there can be long wait times for an available taxi. To avoid these queues and the stressful, bustling waiting areas, we recommend pre-booking your taxi from Dunedin Airport with Welcome Pickups. We offer guaranteed on-time pickups, fully personalised transfers, competitive fixed-rate fares and a 24-hour customer service line, should you need us during your stay in New Zealand.

What’s the cost of an airport shuttle to Dunedin?

There’s a fixed fare of €50 (NZD 90) when it comes to taking a local Dunedin Airport taxi to Dunedin city centre. This fare can be paid to your driver in cash in New Zealand Dollars, or occasionally, your driver may accept card payments, but it’s best to ask. For routes outside of the city centre, drivers tend to use a taximeter to calculate the total cost of the ride, so the fare will depend on the distance travelled and time of day.

For a guaranteed fixed fare you can rely on, booking a private transfer in advance with a provider like Welcome Pickups is advised.

Frequently asked questions

Do Dunedin Airport taxis operate with fixed fares?


Taking a local taxi from Dunedin Airport to the centre of the city will cost a fixed fare of €50 (NZD 90). However, for other routes, your driver is more likely to use an officially calibrated taximeter to calculate the total journey fare, taking into account factors like the distance travelled and the time of day.
