Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

Hitchhiking is fairly common and quite doable.

Cheap travel options

Rental relocations

TransferCar offers free one-way rentals for short-term relocations, e.g. Christchurch to Auckland in 4 days, including ferry pass and a full tank of fuel.

If you are hiring any kind of car you will need to know the road rules (the "Road Code") as police have been cracking down on tourist drivers recently. You can learn the necessary rules for free at this site.

Budget bus travel

Bus travel tickets between cities in the same island can be as cheap as $1, but usually range between $10-50 with companies such as Naked Bus and InterCity


If you have regular travel requirements for a short period you can try carpooling. The NZ Government carpool initiative is here and Jayride is here
