TRAVELLING UNDER THE RED AND ORANGE TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM FROM 3 DEC 2021: Airlines, ferries and other transport operators will require you to have your vaccine pass or negative test before you can travel, and the same applies if you are crossing the Auckland border (after 15 Dec). Whilst our industry is not required to check vaccine passes, when you collect your car or use our shuttle service, please mask up, scan in and follow physical distancing guidelines. Contactless transactions can be arranged, just let us know in advance if this is your preference, you have a mask exemption, or if you are exiting an MIQ facility - we will be only too happy to assist. Enjoy your summer adventure!
