  • you will need to make your internet/phone banking payment to® before you can buy a ticket.
  • you will have to wait at least one business day after you have made your payment before purchasing your tickets online, as this is how long it takes the bank to process your payment.

By registering with® you open an account (called nakedrewards) which you can deposit money into for the later purchasing of tickets.

Wow... these are somewhat amazing prices!

Wow, I just made a booking for next weekend from Auckland to Napier, and usually if I booked so late on the [competitor] service it would cost me $66, but I got my ticket from here for $23!! I also booked ahead for November and it cost me only $1!! I’m a Uni student so these are somewhat amazing prices, and I can afford to travel home! Cant wait to use this service, thanks for the low prices!
