If the flexibility of self drive appeals but you would prefer to sit back and enjoy the journey rather than to drive yourself, then coach travel could be the answer for you. Taking in all of the major routes, many coaches also make a point of going ‘off the beaten track’ so you really do get to experience something different.
Designed for the independent traveller, why not choose a flexi-pass? Sold in blocks of time, these passes allow you to travel on the reliable, regular InterCity bus journeys or on any premium Newmans Coach Lines. Experience some great sightseeing tours or use the buses to get from A to B, available seven days a week, 365 days a year. Travel in any direction, hop on and hop off as many times as your travel pass hours last. The more hours you buy, the cheaper each trip becomes. Flexi-passes are valid for one year and because they are pre-paid, you do not have to watch your budget as you travel. We recommend that you need 55 hours of travelling time to see the beautiful islands of New Zealand or 35 hours just to see the major highlights.
