What is FlexiPass

InterCity FlexiPass is an hours-based bus pass designed for backpackers and independent travellers who want to experience the real New Zealand. Go where you want, when you want and see New Zealand your own way, travelling alongside Kiwis and visitors alike. FlexiPass also includes travel on the InterIslander ferry and travel on selected day tours to top locations.
