Name it right, and fly without a fight: Photographic ID for Domestic Flights in New Zealand

Heads up, travellers! When booking your flight across our beautiful New Zealand, make sure your first and last names on the ticket are a perfect match to those on your photographic ID. Trust us, you don’t want to be “John Doe” on your passport and “Johnny D” on your boarding pass—airlines aren’t fans of nicknames.


Why is this important? Well, unless you fancy spending your holiday at the check-in counter debating your identity, make sure to double-check those details. Whether it’s your passport, driver’s license, or any official photo ID, keep it consistent. After all, the only surprises we want for you are the stunning landscapes and hidden gems of NZ, not a last-minute dash to correct your booking!


So, before you jet off to your next adventure, remember: name it right, and fly without a fight. Happy travels!


Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
