What is the VIK Program?

Holiday Inn Hotel’s are known for their family values with the Kids Stay & Eat Free program being popular among parents (plus a big wallet saver). Here at Holiday Inn Rotorua hotel we have gone the extra mile for our families by creating the VIK (very important kids) Program. Put simply, it is a free green wrist band for kids upon check-in that unlocks savings at some of Rotorua’s best family attractions. What’s the catch? There is none! We put families at the heart of everything we do.

How to join the VIK program ?

Being a part of our VIK Program is easy and free. On arrival to Holiday Inn Rotorua hotel you just need to collect your free kid’s wristband on check-in. To receive your discounts just show the green band at your chosen attraction – the logos are on the band and you get a detailed booklet explaining each one.
