The country's tourism officials are hoping potential taxes on visitors to Auckland will go towards tourism reinvestment.
Auckland Council's looking at airport departure taxes and visitor charges among other options which would help fund the city's transport projects.
Tourism Industry Association CEO Martin Snedden hopes the council will involve tourism representatives in their discussions.
