Terms & Conditions

Bill Richardson Transport World enjoys sharing its experiences with visitors daily. Thank you in advance for understanding and complying with these terms and conditions.

These terms and conditions are subject to change at any time, with or without notification by Transport World. You must agree to these terms and conditions to purchase tickets to any affiliate event or for admission.

Terms and conditions for the purchase of tickets will be available at the time of purchase through Transport World or a designated sales agent(s). If, in the event, the designated sales agent(s) terms and conditions conflict or contradict these terms and conditions or make no specification on a matter, these terms and conditions will be considered superior and will apply.


All credit card or contactless payments will incur a surcharge of 1.95% per transaction on-site. This fee is calculated before payment is submitted and is included in the total transaction amount. There is no surcharge for EFTPOS or debit cards that are inserted or swiped on-site. 

If payment is made using a credit card or debit card issued outside of New Zealand, any currency conversion will be carried out according to the terms and conditions of the card and there may be additional fees charged by your card issuer.


By purchasing tickets for a Transport World event, you agree to abide by these terms and conditions, including conditions of entry. By purchasing admission tickets to a Transport World attraction, you also agree to abide by these terms and conditions, including conditions of entry.

These terms and conditions apply to all areas of the collection and/or event, including the venue, car park and café. Violating these conditions of entry may result in denial of access, immediate ejection, or referral to the New Zealand police if deemed appropriate. No refund will be provided if you are denied entry or ejected because you have not adhered to these terms and conditions.

All attendees on-site must have a valid form of admittance, which must constitute one of the following forms (but not limited to):
Valid attendee accreditation once on-site
Valid authorised event accreditation

Physical, electronic, and other forms of accreditation are designed to allow exclusive access to the Transport World event and admission ticket they have been acquired for. Any attempts by attendees to manipulate (including entering the collection or an event without proper accreditation) will be construed as an attempt to contravene these conditions of entry and may result in denial of entry or immediate ejection.

Those believed to be attempting to contravene these regulations or assist others in breaking these conditions of entry (including the admittance of those without valid tickets or wristbands) will be denied access and referred to the New Zealand Police if required.

There are no refunds, credits, or exchanges on event tickets or admission tickets.


Tickets cannot be refunded, exchanged, or cancelled once issued except in accordance with the applicable laws of New Zealand.

In the instance an event is altered, delayed or cancelled due to reasons beyond Transport World’s control, Transport World will be excused from liability under the Consumer Guarantees Act.


Attempts to damage other attendees' property or Transport World's property will result in denial of entry, immediate ejection, or referral to New Zealand police if deemed appropriate. Additionally, attempts will be made to recover costs if appropriate.

Transport World is a cooler venue; please ensure you bring warm clothing. Entry is at the attendee's own risk, and attendees assume that there may be risks inherent in admission to the venue. Transport World will not be held responsible in the event of any injury, loss, or damage sustained entering the venue, including damage to private vehicles in any adjacent car-parking facilities.


  • All attendees on-site must comply with all official directives in the event of emergency evacuations or situations.
  • All attendees must comply with the directives of Transport World staff. Failure to do so may result in denial of entry, immediate ejection, or referral to New Zealand police if deemed appropriate.

Media must always stay within the defined events space; they are authorised to be inside specified areas, entering via defined entry points as authorised by the Transport World team. Failure to do so will result in the loss of entry privileges and accreditation.

The attendees agree that where it is impossible or unreasonably impractical for the event to take place due to any cause or event in connection with a pandemic that is not reasonably within the control of the organisers, then the event will be cancelled or postponed, and the organisers and attendee shall have no further liability to each other.

If the event is unable to take place on the advertised dates due to government regulations regarding a pandemic, the event may be cancelled or future dates postponed. No refunds will be given. Please ensure you can attend the show date and delay date prior to purchasing, as there are no refunds unless required by law if the event is rescheduled due to pandemic regulations.

At the time of purchasing an entry ticket to the event, the attendee understands that they must agree to any conditions of entry imposed by the government at any time up to and including the event to control the spread of a pandemic. Failure to meet any pandemic government regulation will result in denied entry without the organisers giving the attendee a refund.
