I love the NZ International Film Festival series - it starts in Auckland on the 10th of next month and rolls through each week: Wellington, Christchurch then Dunedin - but the tickets all have service fees now. Every class of ticket and mode or issuance now carries a service fee. That annoying little * that means your ticket is well and truly being clipped. It's 50c per ticket in "service fees" at the counter if you pay in cash! Include it in the door price or you are just being wankers.
*TICKETING AGENCY SERVICE FEES
Mail and telephone. A ticketing agency service fee of $8 per transaction applies
Internet (www.the-edge.co.nz). A ticketing agency service fee of $5 per transaction applies
Counter Bookings and Door Sales. A ticketing agency service fee of 50c per ticket applies
**A $5 transaction fee (i.e. 50 cents per ticket) applies to the Ten-Trip Pass when purchased over the counter.
