Christchurch, New Zealand
Christchurch has reliable public transportation and Uber is widely available. A rental car is not needed unless you plan to take a road trip to the Banks Peninsula where bus service is limited.
However, since the earthquake, many businesses have had to relocate out of the city center, so some restaurants and other attractions are not as accessible as they once were. For folks who want to go to every corner of the city, but don’t like to take the bus or Uber, a rental car might be a good choice.
Christchurch International Airport
Service to most NZ cities and a few international destinations including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong (Seasonal)
30 Durey Rd, Christchurch 8053, New Zealand
There is excellent bus service throughout the city (even to the airport) and surrounding areas.
An easy way to see the city, the tram makes a circuit that takes about an hour. Hop on and hop off where you like.
