Public transportation is excellent in New Zealand. Depending on the area, commuters may choose among buses, cable cars, ferries, taxis and trains. The transportation network links cities to their suburbs, and links the North and South Islands.
All major cities and most towns have taxi services available for travellers and commuters. Taxis are a quick and efficient means of getting around. In Auckland, the minimum fee is NZ$ 2, with NZ$ 2 for each additional kilometre travelled.
Tipping in New Zealand is not obligatory even in restaurants and bars. However, tipping for good service or kindness is at the discretion of the visitor. Hotels and restaurants in New Zealand do not add service charges to their bills.
The spouse programme will be provided on arrival in New Zealand.
