So, I have to ask

Jump to last reply

So, I have to ask, has anyone ever used a service i.e. driver or hotel or anything where the company's fees to M.C. or Visa were passed along on your bill? We had a lovely trip to Ireland early this summer using 4 different private drivers and one of them charged us an additional 3% to cover fees charged by the bank. Now, mind you, this was not our bank. We use a card without foreign transaction fees and that generally shows up only on your billing statement as fees, doesn't it? This was an additional charge by the transport company and separate from the charge for services. Our email correspondence prior to booking said nothing about this even though I specifically inquired about any additional fees. Anyone ever heard of this? Crazy, right? Maybe even unethical ?
