Funky Chicken

Hi, I am thinking of doing the Funky Chicken pass from Auckland-Christchurch and then flying back to Auckland. I need to fly out of Auckland to Hawaii on July 10th (pm) and was wondering how many days you would recommend doing (I understand it says min 21 but don't know if that's pushing it)? I will be flying to Auckland from Australia so trying to get a better idea of dates.

Hi Melissa,

Thanks for getting in touch.

If you have the time spare- its definitely worth taking some you take some extra time to explore the country.  Some great ideas for places to spend - Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington, Abel Tasman, Queenstown, and Christchurch.  You could also look to add on one of our add-on passes- such as the Bay of Islands/ Cape -to visit the "winterless north" of NZ - or explore the south of the country with our Deep South pass.

To help your planning - its a great idea to download our free travel app in either google play or the app store- it will help you plan your trip.

 If you let us know how long you have we can create a customised itinary for you.

Happy planning- see you soon!


Hi Ben,

Thanks for your reply. From my understanding all those places are a part of the Funky Chicken pass so definitely will be visiting them. I think I am in need of a customized itinerary as you mentioned so that I know when to book flights and how long I will be in each place. I have from June 17 (start in Auckland) -July 9th (finish in Auckland) and if it's tight on time I will fly from Christchurch to Auckland (if that allows me to do Milford Sound).



Hi Melissa, flying from CHC- AKL is definitely a good way of freeing up some extra time, will reply to your email.
