Booking well in advance is the best way to say money when it comes to holidays. But affording next year's summer holiday just after returning from this year's summer holiday is not easy.

Here at Interislander, we help you snap up the best Cook Strait ferry fares months in advance by using our interest-free instalment option, Cruisey Pay.

Common Cruisey Pay questions

Who can use Cruisey Pay?

Anyone making an Interislander Cook Strait ferry booking over $100 at least six weeks in advance of travel and can pay the monthly instalments with a credit or debit card can use Cruisey Pay.

Does it cost more?

There is just a one-off $5 fee that is taken along with the first instalment. Other than that, you pay exactly the price of the fare.

How does Cruisey Pay work?

Our system will setup a recurring payment that will automatically take payment on the dates specified during check out.

Can I change my booking?

Yes, you can change your booking. The payments you have already made to Cruisey Pay will be added to the revised basket and you will be able to either pay the entire balance or start a new Cruisey Pay plan.

If you have a Saver fare then additional Change Fees will be added to your revised basket.

Can I cancel my booking?

Your cancellation policy is not affected by Cruisey Pay.

If you have a Refundable fare you will get all payments refunded when you cancel, apart from the $5 administration fee.

If you have a Flexible fare you can postpone your sailing to a later date free of charge.

If you have a Saver fare then you can pay additional change fees to move your booking to a later date and as well as paying the full balance.

What if I miss a payment?

If a payment is declined by your credit or debit card, then the system will automatically re-submit for payment the following day.

If payment is declined a second time, we will email you to advise that the payment was declined.

We will then re-submit the payment five (5) working days later. If this third payment is declined, we will cancel the booking and advise you of our action by email.

How do I get my ticket?

Once your final instalment has been paid, your Booking Confirmation will be available for download from your account (you exchange your Booking Confirmation for your Boarding Pass(es) at check in - there is no such thing as an Interislander "ticket").
