PLEASE NOTE: The process for booking the Gift Mobile has changed. We are no longer taking bookings for the airport shuttle and the shuttle will run on a continuous loop.
The Gift Mobile is a free service for visitors to and from the Fairs courtesy of the NZ Gift Fairs.
AIRPORT: The Gift Mobile will operate on a loop from 8am daily between Auckland domestic terminal and the ASB Showgrounds departing the airport on the hour and every half hour (approximately) – please note this is dependent on traffic and so the timetable may alter +/- 15-20 minutes.
PARTNER HOTELS: The Gift Mobile will pick up and drop off at partner hotels including Grand Millenium, Quest Newmarket and Novotel/Ibis Ellerslie. Operating times are approximately 8-11am for pick up and from 3-5pm for drop off (3-4 pm on Tuesday or day 3 of the Fair). Note the Gift Mobile will start at the Grand Millenium at approximately 8am then on to Quest and on to Novotel/Ibis and back again. This loop takes approximately 90 minutes. There will also be a schedule at the hotels concierge desk.
PLEASE NOTE: The Gift Mobile is not a bookable service and whilst we endeavour to pick up and drop off all visitors who request the service please don’t be disappointed if the service is full.
