Flexi-Pass is sold in blocks of time which allows you to travel on regular InterCity journeys or on any Great Sights journeys* or a mixture of both, in any direction as many times as your hours allow. Flexi-Pass can also be used on any GreatSights New Zealand sightseeing journey, the InterIslander Ferry and on a wide range of cruises and tours in Northland with Fullers GreatSights Bay of Islands. Lock in discounts on every seat, every service, nationwide, everyday. The more hours you buy, the cheaper each trip becomes.
Flexi-Passes are valid for 12 months so it makes them ideal for tourists or those travelling on Working Holiday Visas. If you find you need more hours you can simply top-up your pass like you can on a pre-paid phone card, it’s that easy!
