Can You Bring Your Bike to Niue?

Before we dive into the bike rental companies in Niue, you might want to consider bringing your own bike to Niue, especially if you’re a keen cyclist.

The sole airline flying to Niue is Air New Zealand. For checking in a bike onto an Air New Zealand flight to Niue, you need to pack the bike in a bike box or bike bag. Bike boxes are available to purchase at the Auckland Airport for around NZ$30.

For packing your bike in a bike bag or box, you don’t need to deflate the tyres, but you do need to do the following:

  • Remove the handlebars or turn them sideways
  • Remove the pedals or turn them in
  • Make sure the pressure of any nitrogen gas mountain bike struts is no more than 200 kPa (kilopascal) or 29 PSI (pounds per square inch)
  • Make sure that any cartridges for inflating tyres are less than 50 ml (1.6 oz) and contain non-flammable gas.

Remember to seal the box and label it with your name and phone number. It’s a good idea to place accessories in a bag within the bike box/bag.
