Mini Guide to Picton
Why Use the Interislander?
Whilst many people would be happy to fly between the two islands, others who don’t want the wait at the airport or who want to see the Cook Strait from the water prefer to take the ferry. You can drive your hire car onto the ferry and off at the other side but with the high cost of the car ferry ticket, you’re better off dropping your hire car off in Wellington
before crossing on foot and collecting a new hire car from Picton Ferry Station.
How Easy is it to use the Interislander?
If you arrive in Wellington by train, you should be able to get off in the North Island ferry terminal. Hire cars can also be dropped off easily and quickly at the offices of the companies there too. Once you disembark from the ferry, it’s a short walk to the car hire companies’ offices and once out of the one way system around the port, you’ll be on your way.
What Facilities are There at Picton Ferry Station?
Most of the facilities are there for passengers returning to the North Island and in a small precinct you’ll find various places to eat, a gift shop and a newsagent plus the offices of several companies that use the ferry regularly. The offices of the car hire companies are there too for dropping off or collecting hire cars. You’ll find an ATM for cash and a post box for cards from the South Island which you can buy from the newsagent.
