Nakedbus is a New Zealand coach service that has learnt a thing or two from LCCs and US based Boltbus by selling at least one seat on every bus for $1. Unfortunately, they also appear to have learnt the excess luggage trick. I found a few fares at the advertised buck (Queenstown – Christchurch in July) but (unsurprisingly) never for two passengers travelling together. Travelzoo reckon they had success finding the fares on routes between
- Napier to Taupo
- Palmerston North to Wellington
- Auckland to Rotorua
Regular fares, however, seemed to be in the same ballpark as competitor Intercity.
Unfortunately, Nakedbus might be, well, just a bit of a tease.
