Hi,
Can anyone give me a rough idea of how much a taxi for 3 people would cost from AKL to Seaworld, Universal, Shopping malls (I think it's called Prime outlets)
Thanks, just want to keep on top of my budgeting/spending money :cool1:

Mears have fare estimator on their website:

Just back and we were staying beside Wet and Wild, so quite close to Universal - we were $45 from our hotel to hollywood studios (this includes the fee to get into hollywood studios of $14 and tip) and from Downtown Disney to our hotel it was $30.


This is with City Cabs (yellow cabs), our hotel would order us abc taxi's which were several dollars more expensive unless we said otherwise. There were 4 of us.

Hope this kind of helps! :thumbsup2

An alternative is to use Mears shuttle which used to be $16 pp return. We have used it a few times, it is basically a Mears mini bus that picks you up from the hotel and may make other pickups on the way to SW/Uni etx. You give them a call a couple of hours before you want to return and they bring you back. You can ring the noght before to arrange a pick up for the following day.

PS we used a cab from VWL to Universal and did Universal to AKV, each trip about $50 plus tip

The shuttle is now $18 per person
