Taxis in Akaroa
If you need to get somewhere in a hurry, or are sneaking back after a late night, there are a number of taxis in Christchurch to get you home. They're all regulated and metered, but do agree a fare before you get in.
Christchurch Taxis are a zippy way of getting from A-B because it's such a car-friendly city. Being flat, most people use their cars anyway, so taxis are prevalent. You can find ranks outside the Airport terminal buildings, and around the city. Pick up a business card when you land, to keep for future reference. Sample fares from the airport into the CBD are anything between $30-$50 for a 20 minute journey. You can get to places like Lyttleton, on the coast, for about $35. As always, agree a ballpark fare before you begin your journey.
