How far will your hours take you?

The best part about travelling with an InterCity FlexiPass is there is no set itinerary - go where you want, when you want, in your own time. It's the perfect backpacker bus pass for independent travellers.

  • Georgia's North Island adventure
    Georgia's North Island adventure

    I started off with a day tour from Auckland to Rotorua via Waitomo Caves – the boat ride under the glow worms was unbelievable. Rotorua was heaps of fun and in Taupo I visited Huka Falls and went skydiving! The surf was calling, so I went to Tauranga and Mount Maunganui to catch some waves, then soaked up the relaxing vibe on the Coromandel. I took my time, but you could probably squeeze this trip into 3-4 days.

  • Cam's winter escape
    Cam's winter escape

    Christchurch is a great South Island base, with heaps of attractions all in walking distance. I travelled up to Kaikoura to see seals, whales and dolphins – and eat delicious fresh seafood! Then I headed down to Queenstown via Mount Cook, a day I'll never forget. Queenstown was everything I imagined it to be – I love snowboarding so I hung around for a few days on the slopes.

  • Jimmy's North Island Road Trip
    Jimmy's North Island Road Trip

    My FlexiPass got me all the way from Auckland to Wellington, with stops along the way! I knew I wanted to see the famous Waitomo Caves, and they didn't disappoint. Taupo was another highlight, and I loved the Art Deco buildings and sunny weather in Napier. I finished my trip in Wellington with some great nights out in town

  • Leo's coasts and cultures
    Leo's coasts and cultures

    After exploring Auckland for a few days I took off to the Bay of Islands. First I got out on the water with for a spectacular cruise, then did the Cape Reinga day tour. Our driver was a crack-up and the coastal views were stunning! The sights (and smells) in Rotorua were really cool, and I went to a Māori cultural show that gave me shivers up my spine. I finished up in Taupo, the perfect place to relax after a busy week on the road!

  • Jackson's South Island trip

    Using a FlexiPass to make my way down the South Island was brilliant! There's so much to see along the West Coast, I changed my plans so I could stay a bit longer. Milford Sound was so incredible, the photos just don't do it justice.

  • Sam's Kiwi wanderings
    Sam's Kiwi wanderings

    I flew in to Auckland and out of Christchurch, so this pass was perfect for seeing as much as possible in between. I was planning to go straight to Wellington from Taupo, but some awesome Kiwis I met on the bus convinced me to check out the vineyards around Napier. I'm glad I did!

  • Annie's wild west adventure
    Annie's wild west adventure

    I started off with a bang, doing the Mount Cook day tour and Milford Sound day tours one after the other. The scenery blew my mind! Then I went all the way up the West Coast and jumped on the Interislander ferry (included in my pass and zig-zagged up the North Island to Auckland.

  • Diego's coastal escape
    Diego's coastal escape

    I've been to New Zealand before, so I wanted to get off the beaten track. After checking out the Bay of Islands I went down the east coast to see Gisborne, then crossed to the South Island and made my way along the little towns on the West Coast. A quick top-up meant I had enough hours left to get to Milford Sound – it was worth it!

  • Hannah's hobbit journey
    Hannah's hobbit journey

    Visiting the Hobbiton Movie Set was #1 on my bucket list! The rest of NZ was just as incredible though – I based myself in Taupo to explore the national parks, then explored my way around the South Island. Mt Cook was a highlight, but I think my favourite place was Wanaka!
