Guaranteed accommodation, booked on the bus with your Driver Guide


You don't need to worry about booking your accommodation in advance, Kiwi Experience have you sorted. Each day you will be asked by your driver to fill in an 'accommodation sheet', here you will put your name down to stay in our preferred accommodation for the night. Staying in our preferred accommodation guarantees you a bed on your first nights stay, at each of our compulsory overnight stops.


So where do we stay...


We mainly stay in backpacker hostels, but we also stay on an outback farm or at an adventure lodge in the middle of nowhere! Most rooms are 4-8 bed dorms and most places have the option of a twin or double room for a bit of extra privacy. Your driver guide books you into dorms, but if you wish to stay in a double or a private you will need to book that yourself in advance as we can't guarantee this.


Is it included in my pass...


Your New Zealand bus pass doesn’t include accommodation but in many places there will be accommodation discounts or a cheap meal deal. Most passengers want to stay together but if you wish to stay somewhere else that is totally fine too but you do need to let us know as your pick up point may be different to everyone else.
