How to book using Nakedreward Payment
Research your journey(s) online at in order to estimate the cost of your trip.

Set up nakedbus as a bill payment payee. If you are with one of the banks below, you can do this online by searching for the word “nakedbus”:

  • ANZ
  • ASB
  • Bank Direct
  • HSBC
  • Kiwi Bank
  • National Bank
  • PSIS
  • Southland Building Society
  • Taranaki Savings Bank (TSB)
  • Westpac

If you are with another bank you will need to set up manually using the account number 03-0104-0394083-01.

For phone banking, make a one-off phone call to your bank. The bank will ask for your email address and nakedbus 6-digit member number.

Make a payment to nakedbus. The minimum amount you can deposit is $10, but don’t worry – any left over money will still remain in your nakedrewards account for use when purchasing your next nakedbus journeys. It is wise to deposit more than the price of your future tickets in case they go up during the time between depositing your money and booking your tickets. The price of® tickets depends on how early you book. If other people book during the time your payment is being processed by the bank the prices will go up.

Also, remember to deposit enough to cover the booking fee ($1).

Enter the following information:

Write your 6-digit nakedbus member number in the reference box (this is so nakedbus knows who has deposited the cash!). Do not enter anything else in this field or your payment will be delayed. Only enter six digits (numbers).

Put your email address in the Code Box (don’t worry if it doesn’t all fit - put in as much as you can fit), and put your last name and initials in the Particulars box. For example:

Details to appear on their statement:

Particulars: * Code: Reference:
Bloggs, J bloggs@hotma 009999

Wait at least one business day.

If any of these days is a public holiday, there will be a delay of a further day.

Check to see that your nakedrewards account has increased.

Then: Purchase your tickets using your nakedrewards account.

Retain your nakedbus reference number to show the driver on the day of your trip.

The following table tells you when to expect your money to become available:

Customer Comments

Friendly, courteous, polite & efficient

I know just how often people don’t let you know the good things … well, I would just like to pass on to you my highest praise for the driver from Whangarei to Auckland. He was friendly, courteous, polite, efficient and especially made the travel for my daughter and our international students easy and relaxing - especially as some had not previously used a city to city bus before, and none of us had used the nakedbus service.

His personality and manner is a credit to himself and to your company. We are all Naked Bus Converts now …. no more grumpy [competitor] bus for us!!

Well done to everyone!

What a way to go!

What a way to go! Being a pensioner it is just so wonderful to make this trip possible for me!
