CC Charged Foreign Transaction Fees online booking at usairways.com!

Jump to last reply

BUYERS BEWARE! I recently received on my credit card (CC) bill a charge of $40.00 for "Foreign Transaction Fees" associated with the booking of two tickets USA-Europe. I used usairways.com (USA based company-- Maryland). I called the CC and the CHARGES WERE TAKEN OUT. The Customer Service Rep stated they realized this was not a foreign transaction, rather a foreign destination (irrelevant). I have been booking flights online to overseas destinations at least 3 times/year for the last 20 years and this is a first.

If booking online check your credit card bills. If it is not a foreign transaction, you should not be charged a foreign transaction fee.
