1. Its got lie-flat beds
SLEEPER buses have been designed from scratch to make room for a lie-flat hammock-style bed on the top bunk and two side-by-side bottom bunks with a privacy screen. The beds are comfortable (or at least much more comfortable than sleeping on a bud seat), well-fitted and come with pillows and a reading light so you can have a good rest during your journey.
2. Get power!
SLEEPER buses have been kitted out to answer every basic need. From the free Wifi (see below) to USB charging plugs and even 240V plugs on every bed, even your big bulky laptop will have power all night.
3. You can connect to free Wifi
Every SLEEPER bus ticket gives you access to free Wifi so you can make the most of your time in bed by catching up with friends and family back home or read our guides of Auckland or Wellington to make the most of your day when you arrive in the morning.
4. Save on accommodation and transportation
Booking a SLEEPER bus costs about the same price than a hostel night. For this price, you will save on one hostel night, since youll spend the night on the bus, plus youll save on transportation since youll be at your destination in the morning. Its the best of both worlds.
5. It gives you more time to explore
By sleeping on the bus during your trip youll wake up fresh in Auckland or Wellington ready to explore the city. Since it arrives early morning, you will have a full day to explore and make the most of the tons of attractions that both cities have to offer. Plus, if you are leaving the city you can make the most of your full-day as the bus is not leaving until 8:45pm.
6. Midnight snacks are included
That’s right, you’ll stay hydrated and enjoy a sweet treat with the bottle of water and cookie included in the journey. A lightweight pillow is also included for your comfort – just bring your own sleeping bag or blanket!
7. Convenient schedule
Leaving at 8:45pm and arriving around 8am the next morning, the sleeper buses have the most convenient timetable out there to give you more time before leaving and more daylight when arriving. Thats just perfect!
8. Wake up in a new city
Do you remember that feeling when you woke up in the plane and you were in New Zealand, realising that your adventure was about to start? Well, SLEEPER buses offer the same feeling: fall asleep in Auckland, the City of Sails, and wake up in Wellington, New Zealands capital and gateway to the South Island.
