Why is private transport so expensive in New Zealand compared to China


Unfortunitly we are a small country with a small population unlike most countries. We do not have big highways between town but narrow winding roads that take longer to travel on. This means we do not have taxis, urba private drivers sitting around. The busiest tourism time of the year is November to March so apart from that there is very little business. Fuel, vehicles, insurance, labor are all expensive in New Zealand. I hope this helps. Mike
