What's the difference? 

  • Freestyle Passes are flexible - you can hop on and off the bus at different destinations - Journeys follow a set itinerary
  • Freestyle Passes can be used for up to 12 months from the first date of travel - Journeys tour dates are fixed.
  • Freestyle Passes do not include accommodation and activities, you pay for these as you go - Journeys have accommodation and top rated activities included in the price.

Freestyle Passes are the flexible way to get around New Zealand for people who have more time to explore.
