I know the licences are a novelty item, but for those of us who call there a lot it has become a money making rip off.
Last trip $20 for a years licence - NO $20 for a licence that will expire on your next birthday. CI Tourism you need to talk to some of your politicians and service providers, some of they are just getting into rip off mode and do not care about service. Rental cars are a disgrace, we got a car that leaked like a sieve and got told all the good cars go to returning locals, not good enough, Budget you need to improve, stop the tourists (about 70% from NZ) and see how you go. Stop spoiling a greaty place by chasing the almighty dollar at any cost.
