New Zealand tourism industry against pillow tax
from New Zealand Tourism
The tourism industry remains adamant a hotel and motel levy isn't the way to fund Auckland Council's tourism body. Mayor Phil Goff wants to introduce a targeted rate on accommodation providers to fund the Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development agency. He says hotels and motels hike their prices during major events like last month's World Masters Games, and should contribute to the agency which sponsors them.
