Seniors’ Travel club

Aotearoa – New Zealand – a World in one Country – have you seen it all yet?
Are you tired of waiting in long queues at Airports for Customs clearance and Boarding Calls?
Come with us instead and see New Zealand
Join our Seniors Travel Club and we will take you exploring – to your most loved spots, to the quirky, to the enterprising, and to the sensational………………..

For only $10 per LIFETIME and $16 for a couple you can become part of this great Club.

For a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP FEE you will receive two free Newsletters per year each giving the next six months’ Itinerary, discounted entry to attractions and costs at hotels including accommodation and meals. And of course, most importantly you do not have to be a member to come along on our trips – you can try us out first!

We have experienced Drivers, we own our Coaches, and have been in this business for 30 years. Our Drivers are well-versed in the beauty of New Zealand and all it offers. We plan our Tours for all budgets, sometimes we have a famous ‘boil up’ beside a river or, you may bring your own lunch one day, or a luxury lunch could be the plan at a place like “Terrace Downs” in the Rakaia Gorge.

Day trips depart each month sometimes going deep into Canterbury – trips are often planned around seasons, so you may go to the summit of Mt Hutt in the Winter and the head of Kaituna Valley to marvel at the winter colours. Lighthouses, Rose Festivals, Lavender harvesting, Saffron blooming, places of Heritage and History, White Heron and Albatross sanctuaries – we go to them all. Overnights depart three times a year going longer distances.

We can collect passengers from Retirement Centres if more than three are coming and we have three regular departure points in the city. If we are going south we are happy to collect passengers along the way, i.e. Ashburton, Timaru or if we are going north, likewise we make special stops. For overnight tours, we collect and deliver passengers to their homes.

The prices given below are for members and non/members.
