UPDATE: Services to return for the summer!

We are pleased to announce that the Northern Explorer and Coastal Pacific trains will be returning to the tracks this spring and summer and the Tranz Alpine is running as we are in Covid- 19 Alert Level 1.

The Northern Explorer running between Auckland and Wellington will recommence its normal weekly timetable from Wednesday 07 October 2020

The Coastal Pacific returns from Tuesday 13 October 2020, running between Christchurch and Piction and returning the same day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The TranzAlpine running between Christchurch to Greymouth  runs on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Cook Strait ferry bookings and some daytours and bus routes are also open for sale. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries on 0800 143 669 or info@newzealandtravelteam.com

We understand that Covid-19 continues to add uncertainty in planning, and indeed all the train services rely on the country being at Covid - 19 Alert Level 1. Should there be cancellation of services due to Covid 19 restrictions, we will offer affected customers a transfer to an alternative date, a credit for 12 months, or a refund, regardless of the fare purchased less a $30 processing fee for the entire reservation.
