New Zealand Flexi Pass

  • New Zealand Flexi Pass

Flexipass is a hop-on hop-off New Zealand bus pass designed for the truly independent traveller. Your pass is based on hours of travel with no fixed itineraries – go where you want, when you want and see the real New Zealand your own way. Your Flexipass® is valid for 12 months from the date of activation, giving you plenty of time to experience New Zealand. Your pass won’t be activated until you start booking travel. You can travel wherever you choose on our network and top up your pass with more hours if you need.


Flexipass uses New Zealand’s largest national bus network, offering over 120 services to more than 600 towns, cities & communities nationwide. With a Flexipass you have the flexibility to jump on and off wherever and whenever you please. You can also book and/or change your travel up to 2 hours before departure on coach sectors with no penalties. Just estimate how many hours of travel you need - don’t worry about managing travel days or sectors. Travel 2 hours today, none the next and 7 the day after – it’s up to you! You don’t have to try and pack everything into a confined time period. Bus passes are valid for 12 months from activation, so you can take your time and stop whenever you like.


Some tours are totally included in your pass – no extra charges, just deduct the hours and you’re all set. Take a cruise through the sheltered waters of the beautiful Bay of Islands in search of dolphins, whales and other marine life on a Hole in the Rock Dolphin Cruise from Paihia. Just deduct 3.15 hours from your Flexipass. Or spend a day travelling to the very top of the North Island on a Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach Tour. Hug an ancient kauri tree, surf down massive sand dunes and see two oceans collide. Just deduct 11 hours from your Flexipass.


You can buy your Flexipass and manage all your travel yourself online. Keep track of your hours, plan your routes and add on extras like sightseeing day tours, all in one place.


The more hours you buy on your Flexipass, the cheaper each trip becomes. If you find that you need more hours to keep exploring, simply top up your pass with more hours like you would a pre-paid mobile phone - it’s that easy.
