InterCity FlexiPass gives you:
New Zealand’s biggest bus pass network: When travelling with a InterCity FlexiPass® you’ve got access to over 120 daily bus services to more than 600 towns, cities and communities nationwide – letting you hop on/off anywhere! PLUS Free WiFi nationwide!
Catch the Interislander Ferry on your pass: To make it easier to travel between the North and South Islands, ferry trips on the Interislander ferry are included in your pass.
Day tours are available on your FlexiPassDay Tours: A number of GreatSights® and awesomeNZ® day tours are also available with InterCity FlexiPass®. To book, you just deduct the allocated tour hours from your pass – it’s that easy! InterCity FlexiPass® covers the travel component only and you just pay for the extras, like entrance fees and lunches.
Manage your pass online
You can buy your InterCity FlexiPass and manage all your travel yourself through the InterCity website. When you buy your pass you’ll be asked to choose an access code (like a password or secret phrase) – you’ll use this plus your pass number to log in. Keep track of your hours, plan your routes and add on extras like day tours, all in one place.
Top up your FlexiPass easily
The more hours you buy, the cheaper each trip becomes. If you find that you need more hours to keep exploring, simply top up your pass with more hours – it’s that easy! (Top-ups don’t extend pass validity).

Our network is the way Kiwis travel around New Zealand, so you’ll meet regular people doing regular things, as well as other travellers and backpackers just like you.
We operate a modern fleet of low-emission vehicles, specifically designed for New Zealand conditions.
