Getting around in Rarotonga

When travelling to a new destination for the first time you often have absolutely no idea what to expect when you arrive! The local and friendly team at Sea Change Villas try to help out as much as possible to prepare you for everything that our beautiful island has on offer. One of the many questions you may have about Rarotonga is what to expect it terms of getting around the island.

There are many modes of transport on Rarotonga from public buses, to private transport including taxis, rental cars and scooters. Recreational transport is also an option due to the size of Rarotonga, you can walk many places, bike and if you require transport around the beautiful lagoon, why not take a kayak out for a leisurely look around while you indulge in picturesque views?

As award winning boutique Rarotonga accommodation providers we strive to provide you with everything you need to get out and about and enjoy the full experience of the island. We offer complimentary airport transfers, so no need to worry about getting to and from the airport and your accommodation, and you can take the opportunity at any stage to enjoy our complimentary bikes, kayaks and paddle boards to explore the island and lagoon.

Many of our beautiful Rarotonga Holiday Packages including the anniversary, honeymoon, and wedding packages have car hire or scooter hire included for some of your stay with us. We would be more than happy to help you to organise additional rentals where required, or provide personalised advice on your transport requirements. Scooters typically range from NZD25+ per day, while cars range upwards from NZD36. Simply bring your valid driver's license from home and your ready to go!

If you opt to use bus service you are looking at approximately NZD6 per ride, however, return passes, multi passes and day passes offer a cheaper option for regular rides. The busses work on a clockwise and anticlockwise system which operate over different hours of the day. Busses on the surface can appear to be confusing, however it just takes a little planning and practice. The team at Sea Change are well accustomed to the schedule and routes and will be there to help you find your way!
