Haven't Found What You’re Looking For?

While we hope that our guide has helped you to narrow down your choices when it comes to selecting hotels close to Auckland Airport for your next trip away, we realise that a hotel stay isn’t for everyone. While there are plenty of offers available, such as free breakfasts, free Wi-Fi, and free stays for young children, it’s hard to get around the fact that most rooms cost a minimum of $67.00 NZD per night. For a family of four or more, the price of two rooms over several nights can quickly add up. 

If you’re looking to save money on your holiday, you may want to consider booking off-site parking instead. There are several affordably priced car parks near Auckland Airport, with rates starting at just $6.95 NZD per day, on long term parking. Of course you can’t sleep in a car park - but you’ll be able to travel with complete peace of mind, knowing that your vehicle is being kept safe and secure in a dedicated car storage facility. Why risk leaving your pride and joy in a hotel car park for weeks on end, with no one to watch over it? Wouldn’t you rather opt for a state-of-the-art parking facility with advanced security measures such as 24/7 monitored CCTV, electric barrier entry, and frequent manned patrols?

At Flyparks, we believe that every traveller should enjoy a stress-free way trip away. That's why we've partnered with New Zealand’s most trustworthy and reliable airport parking facilities, which offer quality services, a high level of security, and great prices.
