Child Policy:

Tracknet Cancellation Policy applies to all reservations.

NB: Departure time is from the town of origin of each service.
Eg. Queenstown to Milford Sound – departure is 6.55am regardless of where you join the journey. Please ensure you are ready 15 minutes prior to your scheduled pick up time.

Tracknet are committed to ensuring your comfort and enjoyment when travelling. We will make every effort to maintain our services as per schedule. We also advise that where inclement weather conditions occur, we reserve the right to make timetable alterations, route changes and / or cancellation of a service in the best interest of our passengers.

Change Policy:

If necessary, one change is allowed to your initial booking with no extra charge (must be made more than 6 hours prior to departure). Each subsequent change or cancellation to your booking will then attract a $10.00 admin fee.

If you change your booking and then later cancel your reservations, the cancellation / change policy shall apply from the departure time noted on the earlier of your bookings.

If you miss your Tracknet bus connection due to circumstances beyond your control, (including flight disruption) and you are able to advise us prior to the departure time, we are able to offer the option to travel on the next available service (which could be the following day subject to timetables and seat availability).

Should you not wish to travel on the next available service then the cancellation policy as above applies to your bookings.

Should you simply miss your bus due to poor time management this is considered a “No Show”.


To ensure the comfort of all passengers all Tracknet vehicles and boats are non smoking areas, brief “comfort” stops may be made along the way – ask your driver.
