Nelson City Taxi Services

Nelson City Taxis provide a range of taxi services to meet all our customers' needs.


Whether you are catching a flight or touching down at Nelson Airport, we will get you where you need to go!

We recommend you pre-book ahead of time (just to be safe) and your driver will pick you up and get you to the airport.  If you are touching down, your driver will meet you at the Nelson Airport terminal front.  We still recommend you pre-book your ride, but if you forgot, simply jump in a Nelson City taxi parked outside at the terminal front.

The airport is located about 8km from Nelson City centre and 9km from Richmond.
