We want to let you in on a secret, well secrets... We know your time with us is limited and you want to see and do as much as you can with the time you have available.
Kiwi Experience is a hassle free way to travel New Zealand, taking you to all the best spots with minimal effort. These tips are designed to help you get the most out of your time in New Zealand and your trip with Kiwi Experience, take our word for it.
Finding the right fit
Kiwi Experience has a solid line-up of bus passes to fit every well-minded traveller. When choosing your pass it helps to know how long are you in New Zealand for? Planning to travel around North Island only? South? Both Islands? We know that it can be overwhelming making this decision on your own, so just give us a yell through the Chatbox below, our e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via the phone number (+64 9 336 4286) if you need any help.
Don’t just do the minimum time
If you are looking at our bus passes you probably came across the “Minimum Travel Time” – it’s a great way to get an idea how long it’s takes to complete your route. However, don’t forget that we are a Hop On Hop Off Bus Company so, yes, take as much advantage of us you can. There are many stops where you need to spend more than one night – like Rotorua, Wellington and Abel Tasman. Have a day or two to play with your itinerary as you go – you never know who you will meet along the way, right?
New Zealand is a hugely popular tourist destination and over Summer time it’s full on. We might even have more people than sheep during the sunny days – ok, we are being a bit dramatic here. Truth is: if you want to tick all the items off your list of things to do in New Zealand, plan ahead. This advice is three times more important if you don’t have much flexibility. Get in touch and we are more than happy to help you put together a personalised itinerary.
Don’t you have a clue about what we are talking about? Different passes? Minimum Travel Time? Plan your trip? Don’t panic! Have a read through our article explaining “How Kiwi Experience Bus Works” or get in touch with our friendly Reservation Team – we are the experts after all!
Listen to your Driver Guide
They are locals (and absolute legends) and are there to help you to have an unforgettable trip. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions. They are the ones who know the country and culture better than anyone else – which means that they know the cheap pubs too.
Don't forget where you are
Kiwi Experience will take you through fiords, glaciers, volcanos, waterfalls and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Tongariro National Park and Te Wahipounamu. Of course, take as many photos as you want, but just remember to enjoy the breath-taking environment around you. Make sure you get away from those screens every now and then.
