Locals' Specials

Because we love our locals, we'd like to invite you to enjoy a 50% discount on some of your favourite experiences from 12 October - 29 November 2020. Read on for great locals deals in Queenstown, Te Anau, Milford Sound, and Stewart Island. 

Who can book locals' specials?

This offer is available only to Southland and Otago residents, and accompanying friends and family. Friends and family must travel at the same time as the local. It only 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. 

How to book this offer

  1. Choose your trip from the list below
  2. Click to book, selecting your date and passenger numbers
  3. Enter the promo code at checkout - LOCAL2020

The discount will be shown in your booking summary before the final payment. Once you have paid, you will receive a confirmation email which you should read carefully as it includes important information about check-in times, locations and what to bring. You can only use one promotional code per booking. 

Don't feel like booking online, our friendly team are happy to help. Make sure you mention 'locals specials' when you call, email, or visit us in-store, to ensure you get the deal.

Please note: For us to be able to go ahead with our 2020 Locals’ Specials we have had to include an extra condition. This years specials are only applicable if the Otago and Southland regions are operating in Alert Level One Covid-19 Restrictions (or lower). Due to capacity restrictions, if we move into Alert Level Two or above, guests will be offered the option to upgrade, a full refund, or a Real Journeys credit to use on any experience.
