Cook Straight Ferry Deals

As the booking agent for both Interislander and Blue Bridge ferries, MotorSport New Zealand encourages all competitors and officials to book their Cook Straight ferry travel with us to get the best travel arrangements for your trip.

MotorSport New Zealand can find you the best balance between flexibility, availability and most importantly – a sharp price.

Interislander Update – Effective 27 May 2024: As part of scheduled maintenance checks on Aratere, a part was found to need replacement. A spare part has been fitted but until a new part is sourced, the Aratere will operate on a revised schedule for the next 8 weeks. Therefore sailing options may vary from usual. 


All vehicles can be booked through MotorSport New Zealand, not just tow-wagons and trailers – trucks, support/extra vehicles and foot passengers can all take advantage of the deals.

When you complete the online booking form, this is sent to the team at MotorSport New Zealand. Please put in the time closest to when you would like to travel so the Team can find a match for you.

As a booking agent, they then obtain the pricing and timetable options for your request. You will be emailed options from both Interislander and Bluebridge services, and you then just need to pick which you prefer.

Once confirmed, the team will lock in your booking and an invoice will be issued and emailed to you with your booking confirmation. This is paid directly to MotorSport New Zealand.

Note: Until your pricing/times are confirmed with the team at MotorSport New Zealand and the booking is made, the pricing is not confirmed and is subject to change.

What if there are changes? If there are changes to your booking, you will receive this information by text message. Please note that we do not receive this information before you do. 

Freight (Truck): Booking forms are forwarded to the Freight Team who will make the booking and send the booking information back to us to advise. Payment is made directly to the Ferry Company when you arrive at the terminal and you must arrive one hour prior to departure.
