It seems almost too good to be true doesn’t it? If you are a budget traveler, this sounds like a dream rather than reality. You can buy one dollar bus rides in New Zealand for routes between major cities such as Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Naked Bus is the company that offers these ridiculously low fares. Don’t get turned off by the name, this is a legitimate company that follows a very similar marketing strategy to Air Asia. Proactive travelers who plan their trip well in advance can get rewarded by having the opportunity to purchase one dollar bus tickets on nakedbus.com. According to their site, these super cheap fares are released anywhere from 3 months to 6 months prior to the date of departure. Typically, the first ticket purchased on every bus is sold at 1 NZ dollar. Then, as the date of departure approaches other seats get progressively more expensive. In other words, booking early saves money.
