Niue’s Taxi

Your final airport transfer option in Niue is to use the island’s one and only taxi. It is recommended to book “The Taxi” in advance for airport transfers, as it is usually busy on plane days. Simply put, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to simply hail down The Taxi at the airport.

As the taxi can only be booked over the phone, you will need to either get your accommodation provider or the Tourist Information Centre to give him a call. Otherwise, you’ll be able to call him yourself if you have a Niue SIM card with a compatible phone, as explained in How to Get a Tourist SIM Card in Niue.
