New rules have come into place recently that are supposed to prevent companies charging what the OFT feels are excessive credit and debit card charges.
An investigation by the BBC, however found that many travel companies are still flouting the rules.
It’s been the case in the travel industry for many years that airlines and travel companies advertise lower prices and then make up the difference with high card charges. Hopefully this will now change and there will be more of a level playing field.
Just for the record, here at Global Holidays, we only charge 2% for payments by credit card and 0% for debit cards.
Now that’s a good reason to book with Global Holidays !
