Our roads are often impacted by weather events, roadworks and sadly, crashes. In fact, this summer there are more roadwork projects underway around the country than ever before. When it comes to travelling long distances to catch the ferry, it's always best to give yourself plenty of time and plan ahead.
The last check-in time for your Interislander Cook Strait ferry is one hour before the departure time if you are taking your vehicle onboard.
It does pay to check the Waka Kotahi Journey Planner to get the latest on roadworks, road closures and any other delays. It will also give you a good idea of travel times.
Please drive carefully.
