Car rental location Raiatea Island Airport

Location information for Raiatea Island Airport

Raiatea Island is the second-largest island in the French Polynesian Society Islands chain, with its main village, Uturoa, set in the north of the island. One small road runs around the entire landmass, taking in its small airport, which is located just outside of Uturoa. The facility hosts Air Tahiti, which provides domestic flights to Tahiti and other islands in the chain.


Raiatea Island Airport facilities

Car hire in Raiatea Island – Airport is the practical option for visitors planning to tour the remoter regions of the island, as ground transportation here is basic at best. The airport's tiny terminal provides minimal facilities, such as seating, a coffee shop and souvenir stands, with parking available on request.


Raiatea Island Airport excursions

Fewer tourists visit Raiatea Island than most of the other islands in the archipelago, meaning its remote, volcanic beauty and black-sand beaches can be enjoyed in comparative peace. The village of Uturoa has a few hotels and restaurants, several pretty parks and a large harbour used by local fishing boats as well as container vessels. The ancient Polynesian site of Taputapuatea Marae is easily reached with car rental in Raiatea Island – Airport.


Best time to visit

Tempered by trade winds, the tropical monsoon climate of the islands is never too cold or too hot, although it's very wet in the long monsoon season from October through July. The two short months of the dry season also see rain, which is at its heaviest in December and January. Occasional tropical storms hit the island but they usually cause minimum disruption.


Car rental in Raiatea Island Airport

The best way to see the cradle of Polynesian civilisation and the island's lovely lagoon is to self-drive. Taking into consideration the single good road and the unpaved tracks, driving here is a variable experience. Care should be taken if driving in the wet season as the tracks can flood. Tourists planning to visit the island can compare car hire rates online in advance, thus ensuring the best deal.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
