We’re building a hub

We're developing our locally owned and operated website into a travel hub - a mix between a search engine and your favourite booking site. It will help connect adventurers with local tourism operators, and enable direct bookings. We don’t charge booking fees or commissions, and operators will always have the option of a free listing. Listings can be upgraded, but right now, we’re focused on getting New Zealand tourism back on its feet.

To change the tourism status quo

This is just the start of our journey and we have big plans for the future of Hopskip. It’s been a background project of ours for some years; and while operators have been keen to adopt a new status quo, adventurers needed a reason to make the change. We believe that time has come.

Where experience counts

As a team of three - Bill, Julie and Jeremy – we have considerable experience in delivering value online. Bill and Julie founded HolidayHouses.co.nz and built it from the ground up, into New Zealand’s leading holiday home rental site. Jeremy is co-founder and operator of New Zealand’s largest online tradie and home improvement marketplace, Builderscrack.co.nz.
