How it Works:
It’s simple! you Hop-on and Hop-off anywhere on our New Zealand network. From top to bottom, we run an extensive network of coaches that circulate around the highways and byways of New Zealand, taking in all there is to see and do. How much or how little of the network you utilise is up to you, what you want to see and the travel pass you buy. You can hop-off anywhere around that network, and get back on when the next bus comes through, or whenever you’re ready to. Each travel pass has a minimum number of days it takes to complete and once you start your travel you’ve got up to 12 months to finish. Our friendly drivers also act as guides, offering help and advice when and where you need it to get the most out of your New Zealand travel.
