20 Dec 2012 Kelly asked


I don't know if this has been asked before, but is WiFi on the bus free or do you have pay and if so how much? Also how is the strength of the connection?

    I have a friend who is currently on a contiki tour in New Zealand who posted that they have wifi on there bus, I am heading on a contiki in New Zealand in a week and the information I have read says they have wifi on the bus though there was nothing i read to suggest you had to pay for it. Not sure about the buses they have else where.

    Hi I live in New Zealand – if you need sort term cell phone use I would suggest 2 degrees. I pay $19 per month have internet, texts and 100 mins talk time.

    I was reading for the England and Scotland Summer trip and it says that they have one, but it doesn’t say anything about price so I was just wondering. Thanks!

    I think I remember my TM telling me that they’re slowly phasing in WiFi on the buses in Europe. Maybe by the time you go, they’ll all have it. And as for price, it shouldn’t cost anything

    April last year I did a contiki in Europe. Our TM said they were testing it then rolling it out. I met a few people from my tour a few days ago who are doing a contiki in NZ, where I live. They think wifi is on the NZ Bus. I think it’s true as they posted a facebook message during the day.
