  • Got a destination in mind?

    While Great Kiwi Trips is constantly adding new destinations, we understand you might have a specific place in mind. Feel free to drop some "strong hints" in the comments section during the booking process, and we'll take your preferences into account.

    Embrace the Unknown
    Sometimes the best experiences come from the unexpected. Great Kiwi Trips celebrates open-mindedness, encouraging you to embrace the mystery and venture into the unknown. Who knows, you might just stumble upon hidden gems and fall in love with a place you knew nothing about.

  • When to sign up?

    The early bird catches the worm – or in this case, the surprise destination! It's best to book your trip at least 21 days in advance to allow Great Kiwi Trips to plan your getaway to perfection.


    Flexibility at Its Finest
    Unlike other travel companies, Great Kiwi Trips doesn't restrict you to weekend departures. You can choose to embark on your adventure any day of the week. Simply select your preferred departure date and the number of nights for your trip, and let the surprises unfold!


    Traveling During School Holidays?
    Absolutely! However, keep in mind that trips during school holidays or holiday weekends may require a slightly higher budget. Due to increased travel demand, accommodation and travel costs tend to be higher during these peak periods. But rest assured, Great Kiwi Trips will always ensure you're headed to a destination you'll love.

  • FAQ

    Group Departures Made Easy
    Planning a trip with friends or family members departing from different cities can be a logistical puzzle. Luckily, Great Kiwi Trips has your back! Simply let us know where each traveller lives during the online survey, and we'll do our best to coordinate flights that arrive at your destination around the same time. Road trips may require a slightly different approach, depending on the departure locations of everyone involved.


    Family-Friendly Fun
    Great Kiwi Trips loves catering to families, so bring the kids along! Let us know if your children have any specific interests or strong dislikes during the online survey, and we'll include plenty of family-friendly and age-appropriate recommendations in your itinerary. It's the perfect opportunity to create lasting memories together.


    Furry Friends on Board?
    For road trips, you can even bring your furry companions along! Just keep in mind that accommodation options may be limited, so plan accordingly.


    Payment Made Easy
    Once you've completed the online survey, Great Kiwi Trips will review everything and send you a payment link. You have multiple options for payment, including bank transfers, POLi, or credit cards. It's hassle-free and designed to suit your convenience.


    What's Included in Your Budget?
    Your chosen budget determines the destination, mode of transportation, and accommodation for your Surprise Kiwi Adventure. It's a comprehensive package that ensures you have a fabulous time exploring New Zealand.


    The Solo Traveler Budget
    You might have noticed that the minimum budget for solo travellers is higher than for multi-travellers. Here's why: a significant portion of the budget goes toward accommodations, which are priced per room rather than per person. So, when you travel with a companion, the cost per traveller decreases. Don't worry, solo travelers, you're still cherished!


    Splitting Payments
    Travelling with a partner or a group and want to split the payment? Great Kiwi Trips has got you covered! Just let us know, and we'll provide you with all the necessary details to ensure a smooth payment process.


    Loyalty Points and Rewards
    Great Kiwi Trips loves surprises, but they also love loyalty. To maintain the element of surprise, we don't accept frequent flyer numbers or hotel reward points during the booking process. However, most airlines and hotels allow you to add your loyalty number after the trip or even at check-in, so you can still rack up those points and rewards.


    What to Pack?
    One week before your departure, Great Kiwi Trips will email you packing tips and let you know if there's anything specific you should bring, such as a bathing suit or hiking boots. Rest easy knowing that flights booked through Great Kiwi Trips always include checked baggage, so you don't have to worry about carrying all your essentials with you.
