Optional alternative departures points:

The business operates from Mapua, so some lesser fares start from there and also Motueka. For fares from Picton just click on your preferred point of departure. For Christchurch or any other location, send an e-mail and car relocations or transfers to all tracks click here: Options and Car relocations.

If you would like to join an existing trip click here: Existing trips or e-mail me to advertise a trip for you once booked for minimum fare.

Gas is available for those that come off flights at $10:00 for a 230gm twist top cannister. Rest break and toilet stops will be offered, but please come prepared to make a direct journey to your destination, or request a stop (other than a comfort stop) before the trip quote is finalised.

Please no eating or drinking on board and expect a direct journey (except comfort stops). This includes take away coffee.

Conditions of booking:

There is a 10% booking fee if there is more than a weeks notice of cancellation given, 50% is charged with less than a weeks notice and 100% booking fee if there is less than 24 hours notice of cancellation. Depending on the circumstances, we will give a full credit on the next trip provided it combines with an existing trip, but please note this up to our discretion. For trips requested to be advertised on the "Existing Trips " page to subsidise their chartered trip, a minimum 50% cancellation fee will be charged if other persons are booked on the back of the charter at the time of cancellation.
If there are delays of more than 10 minutes that have not been made by us there will be a nominal charge to pay for drivers time. This includes stops for food items or gear forgotten, or coffee breaks of more than 10 minutes.
As a trampers transport we have more than the average challenges with weather and road and track closures. Often DOC "recommends" that trampers cancel or amend walking dates on the track due to weather or track changes. If we can change a booking at no additional inconvenience other than re booking there are no cancellation penalties, but unfortunately if we are committed on that journey to drop off and pick up trampers, the booking conditions will apply. Full refunds will only be given if the trip is cancelled by us before the start of the trip because of road closures or for safety reasons.



Conditions of booking for carriage of bikes and luggage:

Provided that a return trip is booked carriage of bikes and luggage get transport free to location of drop off and pick up. If trampers book on our services they can have their luggage stored or couriered to their accommodation or brought to the track end. There will be a small charge for this service. All bags must be labelled with name, destination and date of pick up please. Please note that though care is taken, transport of items is at owner's risk and the business is not liable for loss or damage.
