Bus & Beds. Get a Magic Nights Sleep!

Press Release 08 June 2006

Bus & Beds. Get a Magic Nights Sleep!

New Zealand's leading backpacker & independent transport provider is pleased to announce the launch of yet another superb Magic Travellers Network and Youth Hostel Association New Zealand product initiative.

Following the success of other offshore Magic and YHA packages, the new product entitled “Bus & Beds” provides backpackers and independent travellers a Magic transport pass and YHA accommodation neatly rolled into one.

Each pass bought contains a book of YHA accommodation vouchers – one for each nights stay. YHA membership is required and where possible, YHA will upgrade Bus & Bed passengers to a premium multi-share room at no extra cost. With YHA operating the only nationwide hostel network and Magic operating a limited number of overnight stops, every traveller can enjoy more freedom and flexibility adding extra nights at their choice. The key to the product is that one price covers both components.

“Many of our passengers who book locally have long been requesting a way to buy a Magic transport pass and include pre-purchased accommodation” Rob Burnell, Magic’s Sales and Marketing manager states. “ Whilst this has always been possible, it has never been offered as a single packaged price. We have now met the market need head on, coming up with a very straight forward, simple and flexible Magic/YHA pass combination.”

Magic has packaged its more popular and best selling passes to deliver New Zealand visitors a top quality, unique, Qualmark endorsed product, both day AND night.

Magic Travellers Network operates a hop on, hop off backpacker coach service around New Zealand, offering pickups from hostels along the route. The driver/guides provide entertaining commentary and an accommodation and activity booking service. Magic Travellers Network is Qualmark endorsed and operated by Tourmasters South Pacific, a member of ITOC.
