New Zealand 'Bans' Low Spend Tourism

Posted by Ed 6 mths ago 

Tourism Minister Stuart Nash says freedom camping in vehicles that are not self-contained will be banned as part of efforts to market New Zealand to super-wealthy overseas tourists.

Speaking on RNZ’s Morning Report, the incoming minister said he plans to introduce regulations that ban the leasing or hiring out of vans that do not contain toilets to tourists.

 “Gone are the days, as far as I’m concerned, where you hire a cheap van that’s not self-contained,” he said.

“We get all these vans driving around at the moment that are not self-contained, so if the driver or the passenger wants to go to the toilet – we all know examples of this – they pull over to the side of the road and they s... in our waterways.”
