Naked Bus Releases Thousands of $1* Bus Fares as Fuel Prices Rise

Despite rising fuel prices and the peak school holiday season, Naked Bus continues to deliver its promise of providing super cheap nationwide bus fares.

Famous for it’s $1* Bus Fares, the low-cost bus service provider has just released new booking dates right up to December 2014.

Those familiar with the young and innovative company, will be aware that date release at Naked Bus translates to thousands of $1* fares becoming available on the company’s website. So not only will customers be able to start booking their upcoming summer bus travels - but their chances of getting the incredibly low bus fares that Naked Bus is famous for is extremely high - this is keeping with the company’s mantra of ‘the earlier you book, the cheaper it is’.

Launched in 2006 by founder Hamish Nuttall, the company successfully implemented a low-cost business model similar to that used by British transport company Easyjet and revolutionised cheap bus travel in New Zealand by introducing initiatives such as paperless tickets, an easy self-service online booking system and of course its famous $1 fares. Its price beat guarantee assures customers that they are getting the best deal.

Since its launch, the company has gone from strength to strength and The Naked Bus network currently extends from Kerikeri in the North to Invercargill in the South, with daily services across the country.
