Parking and Transport

Parking your car is easier than ever at Taupō Airport. Our newly-updated carpark system means it’s easy to get in and out, and stay as long or as short as you need.

Taupō Airport Parking

The Taupō Airport carpark is situated directly outside the main terminal and is just a short walk to check-in.

As you enter the carpark through the barrier, the monitor will record your number plate. Parking is free for the first 30 minutes and then charges apply, as shown below. Payment can be made by EFTPOS, Visa debit/credit card and Mastercard at the pay station outside the terminal, or at the exit barrier (paywave only) using our ticketless system. Receipts are available if you pay at the pay station. The carpark does not accept cash payments.

While secure parking is not currently available, security gates on Anzac Drive are closed at night.


  • Up to 30 minutes - Free
  • Up to 60 minutes - $2.00
  • Per hour thereafter - $2.00
  • Daily maximum (Days 1 - 3) - $14.00/day
  • Daily maximum (Days 4 - 7) - $10.00/day

Please note: A surcharge of 2.5% will be applied to payments using Paywave, Visa and Mastercard, which is in line with our cost of acceptance.
