Getting around

Car & motorcycle

Car

Huahine's three car-hire operators will deliver directly to the airport or to your hotel. Book ahead for long weekends, school vacations, Christmas and peak tourist seasons as there are sometimes not enough cars to go around. Hire periods of four, eight, 24 and 48 hours are offered, with or without unlimited mileage. If you intend to drive all the way around the island, unlimited mileage will probably be cheaper. It's worth asking about discounts. Credit cards are accepted. There are two petrol stations in Fare.

Avis-Pacificar (68 73 34) Next to the Mobil petrol station in Fare, it also has a counter at the airport. A Citro├źn Saxo or Peugeot 106 costs 9000 CFP for 24 hours with unlimited mileage.

Europcar (68 82 59) The main agent is north of the centre of Fare near the post office, and also has counters at the airport and Relais Mahana. A compact car costs 10, 000 CFP for 24 hours with unlimited mileage.

Hertz (66 76 85) Right on the main strip in Fare, Hertz has the best deal in town. Cars cost only 6000 CFP per 24 hours with unlimited mileage. They're a little junky looking, and most lack air-con, but are well worth the price.

Local transport

Taxi

Public transport doesn't really exist. For taxis, call Moe's Taxi (72 80 60). Moe speaks perfect English and will take you anywhere on the island. Prices vary but are reasonable.
