Credit card surcharges for travel tkts and taxis

There has been plenty of objections to credit card charges of 1-2% (either labelled merchant or bank fees depending on who is thought to be harvesting the surcharges ) for travel accommodation and transport tickets in Australia. How about the outrageous 10% surcharge on credit care payments for taxis to and from airports-incurred on top of booking fees, higher tariff during peak and after-hours, airport and toll fees? This alone added $6 to a $60 fare from Tullamarine to central Melbourne. I have not encountered this type of gouging in London or New York, where a justifiable currency conversion fee of 1-1.5% is all that is added to credit card transactions.
