Travel Tips – Our Top 5 FAQs answered
Travelling somewhere new is always exciting, but a little daunting. Here at the Norfolk Island Travel Centre, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about travelling to Norfolk Island, the Island itself or how to book a holiday to this beautiful paradise in the Pacific.
Here are five of the most common questions we are asked:
1. Is it safe to travel to Norfolk Island?
2. Do I need a Passport?
Australian Citizens – No (however they are the preferred method of identification), but you will need valid photographic identification.
Non-Australian Citizens or Foreign Passport Holders – Yes, for more information, please click here.
3. Can I connect to the WIFI at my accommodation?
As Norfolk Island has no 3G coverage you will not be able to use the Internet at all times. Most accommodation properties have a “HotSpot” on their premises. HotSpots work similarly to wifi enabling access when you’re in wifi range. Additional HotSpots are located throughout town and at various places on the Island which will also provide you internet when in range. HotSpot cards are available from Norfolk Island Telecom and a variety of stores when you arrive on the Island. Note: Plans are in place for Norfolk to have 4G service in late 2020.
4. Do I need a car?
Most holiday packages we offer already include a hire car. However, if car hire is not already included in your package, we strongly recommend hiring one. Although Norfolk Island is a small island, there is no public transport and the island is very hilly. Hiring a car will give you the freedom to explore and tour the island as you please. The only exception to this is if you are travelling on a fully escorted tour that already includes transport to all tours and activities on the holiday itinerary.
