How Does Kiwi Ex Work?

Here's what you need to know to get started

​​


CREATE YOUR OWN NEW ZEALAND ADVENTURE WITH OUR FLEXIBLE BUS TRAVEL NETWORK.

Providing the ultimate hop-on hop-off adventure for 30 years, Kiwi Experience takes you to all the iconic spots and helps you to book the most epic activities and accommodation throughout the country. We help plan your trip to suit your needs while ensuring you see New Zealand’s iconic spots and experience heaps of free stuff along the way.

1. CHOOSE YOUR PASS

Decide what you want to tick off on your bucket list and how long you want to travel to choose your perfect pass.

2. CUSTOMIZE YOUR ADVENTURE

There are so many ways to do New Zealand right. But only one way to do it like you. To start planning your trip, get in touch with our reservations team who are on hand to support you with mapping out your adventure. If you are travelling over summer (December – March), please confirm your start date at least 2-3 weeks prior to reserve your seat.

Contact our Reservations Team by jumping on live chat, sending us an e-mail (travel@kiwiex.co.nz) or giving us a call (+64 9 336 4286) if you need any help.
