Avoiding Outrageous fees when cashing in frequent flyer flights

Frequent flyer miles might seem like a good deal, but there are often hidden surcharges and taxes that result in the flight being a not-so-good deal. Martin Millican found this out when he cashed in 120,000 points to take his son on a trip to Edinburgh. There was an additional $780 in surcharges and taxes on each ticket he got with his points, which meant the tickets were only $373 cheaper than the price advertised on Air Canada’s website.

What Millican found in the fine print was that there was a fuel surcharge of $473 on each ticket, which he says is a lot of money to pay for a ticket that is supposedly “free.” People who use their points are upset because the fuel surcharge is included in the base price of a ticket bought through the airline’s website or a travel site, but when bought through a points plan, the surcharge is separate. There are some ways around this: choose an airline that does not charge a fuel surcharge or keeps it minimal, use a different credit card that will allow you to pay off the balance with your point, and try different travel points programs.
The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
