International Wild Card 1 person

Unread post by Impisi08 »

I just renewed my International Wild Card again. To be clear, I have no problem with paying for acces to the parks.

What I don't understand is why an individual must pay more then a couple or a family:

individual - zar 3.575
couple - zar 5.585 (= 2.792,50 per person)
family - zar 6.685 (up to 7 persons).

What is the reason behind this?

Well looking at your figures you are not paying more than a couple.
I think you get a discount if you are a couple and the single is the base rate.

When you book a hotel room as a couple its cheaper per person than two single rooms.

Thank you for your reply KitKat1953.

Unfortunately I am a bit lost at your reasoning that an individual is not paying more then a couple.
Well looking at your figures you are not paying more than a couple.
I think you get a discount if you are a couple and the single is the base rate.
A discount is a deduction from the usual cost.

If I understand you correct the usual cost is the base rate of zar 3.575.

An individual must pay zar 3.575 and a couple gets discount for some reason and pays zar 2.792,50 per person.
If that is the same I am more then happy to exchange zar 2.792,50 for zar 3.575 with you. Many times.

Two single rooms in a hotel are more expensive then one room because they must clean and change sheets in two rooms. I do understand that. But with the Wild Card, I think, Sanparks has no extra costs.

Anyway, like I said before I have no problem with paying for the Wild Card and I don't want that the price goes up for a couple. I am just curious.

OK
Maybe its because a couple would be in one vehicle, thus less wear and tear on infrastructure ??
Anyway always good to ask why

Cheers
