The best things in life are free – or near enough to it – and that could not be more true than in New Zealand when travelling with Kiwi Experience. As well as the incredible value already built into your New Zealand backpacker’s pass, each journey includes lots of great activities and extras as well as awesome discounts. You get all these benefits simply by being a Kiwi Experience passenger – we like to look after our Kiwi Experience whanau (pronounced “far-no”, the Maori word for family).

To make sure your hard-earned cash goes as far as possible the following stuff is included in respective New Zealand backpackers’ passes.

That’s right no extra cost – it will cost you nil, nada, nothing, zilch, zero and will give you more bang for your buck!The bigger your pass the more stuff is included.



By being part of the Kiwi Experience whanau you’ll also be able to get great deals and discounts on activities, accommodation and even food!

If you’re an ISIC, YHA, VIP or NOMADS card holder you can save up to NZD$50 more off the standard prices on our larger travel passes. Check out the passes page to see what New Zealand backpackers’ passes offer this. Gotta love that as a New Zealand backpacker! Save that extra money for tacky souvenirs or a decent meal (one cannot live on noodles alone!). Remember to always check out our current specials too.



The list is growing too fast to keep up but your driver will keep you informed once on the bus. Generally, you’ll save a few dollars at each accommodation venue and there’s often meal deals for Kiwi Experience passengers in need of a cheap feed.
