Airport Transfers Through Your Accommodation

One option for getting between Hanan Airport and your chosen accommodation is through airport transfers organised through your accommodation provider. This service needs to be organised with your accommodation prior to arrival.

While most accommodations in Niue offer complimentary airport transfers, some will charge a small fee. On arrival, accommodation hosts or representatives will be waiting with a sign for you outside of the arrivals area. If you’re staying at the Scenic Matavai Resort or Villas, go to the Scenic Matavai kiosk.

For returning to Hanan Airport for your departure flight, airport transfer times can be organised with your hosts during your stay.

Car Rental Airport Pick-Up

The car rentals in Niue make it easy and affordable to use rental cars for airport transport thanks to the option to pick up/drop off vehicles at Hanan Airport for no additional fee.

If you have booked a car rental for pick-up at Hanan Airport, your car rental will be available on your arrival in Niue.

Picking Up Your Rental Vehicle from Niue Airport

Different car rental companies have different processes for picking up the vehicle. The most common process is as follows: Outside the arrivals area, pop-up car rental kiosks are there along with car rental staff to go through your booking. You’ll go through the car rental paperwork, as well as a vehicle inspection before you’re handed over the keys to the vehicle. The vehicle will either be parked at the airport car park or right at the entrance of the airport – either way, it will not be too far to walk.

Alternatively, some car rental companies will leave you instructions on where to find the vehicle at the airport. The car will be open with the keys in the ignition. There should be a booklet in the glove compartment outlining the car rental policy.

Returning Your Rental Vehicle at Niue Airport

You can also use your car rental to return to Hanan Airport when catching your departure flight. The process for returning your vehicle at the airport is simple: park the vehicle in the airport car park and leave the car keys in the car (we recommend leaving the window down if it’s a newer vehicle with the threat of locking itself). There is no additional paperwork or procedures to be done.
