Overnight Bus New Zealand

Catch an overnight bus and save on travel while you sleep!

InterCity overnight bus

One of the best ways to save money while travelling in New Zealand is to take an overnight bus – that way you can get where you’re going without having to pay for accommodation as well. Just like that you’ve saved time and money!

InterCity runs overnight buses between Auckland and Wellington on modern double-decker vehicles with free Wi-Fi. Overnight buses will get you to your destination refreshed and ready to spend the day exploring instead of catching up on sleep.

There is an InterCity overnight bus travelling in each direction every night. They depart from Auckland or Wellington at 7.30pm and has a mixture of standard seats and premium InterCity Gold seats on board. Gold seats are extra-large leather reclining seats with extra legroom and USB charge cables, so you can charge your phone or your tablet on the go.  The InterCity Gold upgrade is available for an extra charge.

You can take the night bus from Auckland or Wellington and choose from a range of locations along the way, including the popular tourist destinations of Rotorua and Taupo. During your overnight bus trip you’ll stop for food and toilet breaks as well as to pick up other evening travellers, including locals and other backpackers.

Overnight bus tickets don’t cost too much, so you can save on your travel and get some sleep along the way!
