Frequently Asked Questions

How does guaranteed accommodation work?

Every day that you are travelling on the bus, we will guarantee you a bed for your first night's stay in each overnight stop. In some locations, the bus stays 2 or 3 consecutive nights (such as Taupo, Franz Josef and Queenstown) so we guarantee these nights too. In peak season when accommodation can be hard to come by, your driver guide will take care of all bookings for you as you go. If you are planning to stay somewhere longer than the minimum travel time, we recommend you contact the hostel we stay at in advance and secure those extra nights. All accommodation costs are additional to your bus pass.

Combine the social atmosphere of a guided tour with the flexibility of travelling independently. Your bus pass allows you to hop on and off the route wherever you like for as long as you like. 

You must select a preferred start date and book the first leg of your itinerary.  All other legs legs need to be booked at least 48 hours prior to departure via the Kiwi Experience app.  During the low season services may not operate every day so please check the Kiwi Experience timetables.

This means instead of purchasing a bus pass to travel from point A to point B and once getting to point B, you stop; you will be purchasing a pass that you have 12 months to travel on, so make the most of this and come for longer than the 'minimum travel time' on our passes. 

In fact, we encourage you to jump off the bus to explore more of New Zealand! Try out one of New Zealand's Great Walks, chill out on a beach for a couple of days, stop for a few months if you have a working holiday visa or try out woofing in one of the many locations around the country.

Just a small reminder, when you are jumping on and off the bus for longer than the 'minimum' time, you do need to get in contact with us via email or phone so we can get you booked on another bus or cancel a bus you may be booked onto. 

We welcome the young and the young at heart aboard our buses; there is no upper limit! There is however a lower limit; you’ll need to be 18 years at the time of travel.

Passengers are allowed one 23kg suitcase/backpack and one day bag, as buses have strict weight restrictions.

No, but we have great rates!


We have lots of mates, so as soon as you’re onboard the bus, you will get the best price guarantee on all activities along the route. Your driver-guide will book your activities for you on the bus each day so you can decide what tickles your fancy in each location. At the peak of summer, New Zealand activities are hugely popular and we promise you a spot in the line!
