Latest news

13 February, 2018


After 10+ years of servicing community groups, schools and event organisers in Australia, TryBooking is now saying Kia Ora to New Zealand!

New Zealand has a thriving events culture with a strong community mindset and love of the outdoors, socialising and new experiences. As we share many of the same ideals, the move there was a natural step. Our team have also received plenty of requests from Aussie and Kiwi event organisers to set up shop in New Zealand, which did not go unheard.

If you are an Australian event organiser who is interested in running New Zealand events, it’s easy to get started - follow these simple steps:


1. Go to the TryBooking home

2. Click on the global setting in the top right hand corner.

Some other questions you may have include:


How will my banking work?

YYou will need to have a New Zealand bank account if you are running paid events in New Zealand. This is due to the different currencies - but having a New Zealand bank account will also help you to keep costs down, and to set things up faster. There are other options if you are unable to setup a New Zealand bank account, get in touch to learn more.


Can I run or check New Zealand events from my Australian account?

You will need to create a separate, dedicated New Zealand account for New Zealand events. This helps to simplify the administration process for you so that the different currencies, GST rates and do not get mixed up with the same account.


Are you offering support in New Zealand?

Yes - for help with events in New Zealand, feel free to call our New Zealand support team on (09) 281 3468 or email for customer support.


What is your pricing for New Zealand?

TryBooking will continue to offer low fees for New Zealand. Contact us for more information.


Can I use the TryBooking Mobile Scanning App?

Yes. Like the main login to TryBooking, the Scanning App will detect your region or you can set your region on the scanning login screen.


If you have any further questions or would like help setting up your New Zealand account, get in touch with us today.


Look forward to chatting with you,

The TryBooking Team
