TRACK TRANSPORT - BUS OR CAR?

Including the Routeburn, Milford or Kepler Track efficiently into your travel itinerary requires advance planning.  

While Easyhike specializes in vehicle relocation, we are still here to help if you are set on bus transport. There are several factors to consider when perfectly planning your travel logistics.  ie. What is more important to you? Seeing/doing more, or spending less money (but more time) riding the bus?

FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR TRACK TRANSPORT

Rate/Consider your most important factors - this will vary; depending on your plans, your vacation style, how much time you have, and how much you want to see and do in New Zealand. Have you considered:


Saving money
Simplicity and efficiency
Safe driving on New Zealand roads
Convenience - your own time schedule and vehicle/belongings
Flexibility to visit other places or stop/take photos/camp along the way

Saving time
Luggage requirements (belongings you won't take hiking)
Back tracking or taking a round trip
Rental car costs
Visiting/staying in Milford Sound at your leisure


Thank you for the wonderful service, it made our experience in the Routeburn that much better knowing we didn’t have to meet a shuttle schedule. I will highly recommend Easyhike to my friends and family visiting NZ.
