Handling Procedure of Speed and Parking Tickets and Toll Road Notices
The Supplier as the Owner of the vehicle is liable for all parking and traffic violations. The Supplier does not query any issued fines and pays the outstanding balance. The Supplier often receives traffic and parking tickets after a vehicle is returned and will charge any outstanding balance to the Cardholders’s credit card. The Supplier will not contact the hirer prior and after the charges to his/her credit card, but will explain the charges and send copies of the parking and traffic violations if contacted by e-mail or on the phone. The Supplier will charge a NZ$35 handling fee for each issued parking or traffic violation. The Supplier will charge a NZ$20 handling fee for toll road fees.
