    No 2 days insurance. The Macau permit is free and valid for 3 years, the HK closed road permit is $540 per year and insurance for Macau and the Mainland part of the bridge is around $4000 per year, depending on your car.

    Not 100% sure, but fairly certain. Since there is no 2 days permit, it wouldn't make sense to sell 2 days insurance. You also can't buy 2 days insurance for HK, can you?

    It's not really a "benefit". All highways in China are always toll free on public holidays like CNY or National Day. It's to avoid huge traffic jams at the toll exits.

    To be fair, "huge traffic jams" aren't really going to be a problem on the HZMB even if they closed all the lanes for 24 hours.

    It's also China that suspends tolls on public holidays, not HK so HKers lose revenue having paid the biggest chunk for the bridge.
