Best of New Zealand Pass

Best of New Zealand Pass

The Best of New Zealand travel pass (tel 0800 NZ BEST (0800 692 378); website www.bestpass.co.nz) is a good travel option for the independent traveller.
The pass works on a points system where you buy a pass worth a certain number of Best Points and use these points to purchase travel at a discounted rate. Generally this works out at around 30% cheaper than buying individual tickets.
This pass allows the holder to travel by Tranz Scenic trains, InterCity and Great Sights coaches and the InterIslander and Lynx ferries.
The Best of New Zealand Pass is available in either 600, 800 and 1000 point passes and you can top up an extra 100 or 200 points during your trip if your points start to run low.
