Enjoy a new level of comfort on board our new overnight buses between Auckland and Wellington.
Stretch out on your comfy bunk and drift off to sleep while our drivers do the work. You’ll arrive feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day!
InterCity SLEEPER buses have a mixture of standard seats and InterCity SLEEPER bunk beds on board. Top bunks are single hammock-style beds, with two bunks side by side underneath, divided by a privacy screen.
Each bunk comes with a small lightweight pillow and has a three-pin power point and a USB power point so you can keep your devices charged and enjoy our free onboard wifi. PLUS we’ll also include a bottle of water and some cookies in case you need a midnight snack!
InterCity SLEEPER will be available from 8 August on our new overnight services 6513 and 6514 between Auckland and Wellington.
It’s easy to book an InterCity SLEEPER bunk on your next overnight bus trip. Just look for the InterCity SLEEPER icon under Service Info in your search results.

Here are some tips to make your InterCity SLEEPER bus trip as comfortable as possible:
Each bunk has a three-pin power point and a USB power point, and there’s free WiFi on board. Remember to bring charging cables/power cords for your devices.
Make sure you don’t sleep through your destination and wake up in the wrong city! Set an alarm on your watch or phone for 15 minutes before your scheduled arrival time.
If you want to change your booking from a bunk to a seat or a seat to a bunk during your trip, check with your driver when the bus arrives at the next stop. Your driver will let you know the upgrade fee and whether there’s any availability.
You must not swap seats or bunks without permission from the driver. You must not attempt to convert your bunk to a seat or vice versa.
As well as all our standard InterCity terms and conditions, the following terms also apply to InterCity SLEEPER services:
SLEEPER passengers must be able to climb unaided into a top bunk. Please note there is no ladder access and climbing into the top bunk involves stepping up from the footrest of the seat below.
Maximum height and weight restrictions apply to all SLEEPER passengers due to the design of our bunks:
If you are over 120 kilograms or taller than 200cm, you'll need to book a standard seat, or choose to travel on a service with InterCity GOLD premium seats instead.
InterCity will provide a small lightweight pillow for each bunk. Please bring a sleeping bag or blanket.
We can’t guarantee requests for specific bunks. When you check in your driver will allocate you a bunk. You must follow the driver’s instructions and you must not move to a different bunk during travel as there will be other passengers boarding during the trip.
If you are travelling alone, you may be given a bottom bunk bed next to another single passenger. There is a privacy screen between the bunks. InterCity cannot guarantee that passengers will be next to another passenger of the same gender.
Unaccompanied minors are not permitted on SLEEPER services. The minimum age for solo travellers is 16. Passengers aged 3-16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18 or older.
Infants (under 3 years) are not permitted on SLEEPER services. SLEEPER berths are not designed for adults and infants to share, nor can infants occupy them alone.
Each passenger can have 1 piece of checked-in luggage weighing up to 20kg, plus carry-on luggage.
On rare occasions, for operational reasons, we may not be able to operate a SLEEPER bus or there may be insufficient bunks available. If this affects your travel we will provide a standard seat and we will refund a maximum of 50% of the fare.
For your own safety and the safety of all other passengers you must follow all driver instructions. You must also pay attention to and follow the instructions of all safety signage on board.
