Scooters, the most common form of transport

The most common form of transport around the island is by motor scooter. Small 50cc to 100 cc scooters are favored by locals as well as tourists. Driving is on the left hand side of the road and a temporary Cook Island Driving license is provided by the reantal company and then you must go to the police station in Avarua to obtain the permanent Cook Islands Driver's License. You must produce a driving license from your home country and your passport and take a driving test. The cost is NZ $25.00 per person and is valid for 12 months. You can purchase a license that is valid for 5 years fora higher price.

Push bikes are also an excellent form of transport as the main road on Rarotonga Island is basically flat and makes for easy cycling. It takes approximately 3 hours at an easy pace to cycle round the island. Push bikes are available for hire at all major hotels and motels around the island. The cost ranges from $15 to $20 per day, dependant on the rental company.

There is a circle island bus running every half hour from 7:00am to 4:30pm and again from 6:00pm to 11:00pm. Please check the fare with the bus driver before embarking on the bus. It does not matter in which direction you catch the bus for you will end up at your destination. The bus travels clockwise on the hour and anti clockwise on the half-hour.

Taxi service is available upon advance booking. There are no meters and rates vary substantially from one taxi to the next. Always obtain the fare before entering the taxi to avoid any problems. Taxis are sometimes difficult to obtain in the evening hours so it is wise to book ahead by telephone.
