WI-FI in New Zealand

Stray's Wifi Network is now closed

We decided to close the network as we found our passengers are just as happy using SIM cards and purchasing affordable data packs. Free Prepaid SIM cards are available at the international airport, from the Stray Travel Shop (Auckland) and with some Driver Guides.

If you have any concerns about this closure please contact our reservations team at
