The time per job is standard, the cost of parts is standard, its the hourly rate that differs regionally and per dealership, hence the differing costs.
As Hybridrob has said, the scheduled servicing is not covered by the same national pricing structures as the brake pads/exhaust/clutch etc on Honda Happiness.
That said, keep the jazz for 3 years and you will at least come out the same, if not save some money. Don't forget, its also transferrable when /if you sell the car so added value when you come to sell it.
