Overcharging

Jump to last reply

Second attempt, the previous just flipped off screen....

We came back from Sri Lanka a few weeks ago after a great three weeks travelling and having adventures we thought were fantastic until we got talking to a couple on the plane on the way back.

It turns out we paid three times as much for the taxi to the airport than they did, and loads more for that marvellous safari in Yala. They'd done the same tour a week before us...

This hurt and took the shine off our holiday completely.

But what can we do about it? And how does anyone know what the right costs is?

Jim
