Locals' Specials

Because we love our locals, we'd like to invite you to enjoy a discount of up to 50% off some of your favourite Queenstown, Fiordland and Stewart Island experiences. 

Who can book locals' specials?

This offer is available to Southland and Otago residents. It applies to new bookings and it only applies to adult fares.

Regardless of how you book you will need to have proof of address with you at check-in. This could be a current power or household bill that includes your name and address. 

If you don't live in Southland or Otago, unfortunately, you won’t be able to use our locals’ specials. So, instead, head over to our specials page to check out the other deals on offer.
