I wrote a little while ago about hidden charges at hotels Click Here to read – Hotels and Hidden Extras
I subscribe to different travel blogs and sure enough there are other travellers also having doubts about these hidden charges being managed by massive search engines and what they are actually offering the travelling public. Reportedly Booking.com want to earn commission from these ‘resort fees’. They don’t want to save the travelling public money they just want to earn more themselves.
Have a look at this report about hidden resort fees and the OTAs missing out on commission opportunities.
Really it isn’t fair if these Online Travel Agents are going to make money from the extras that the hotels are levelling at their customers without passing the savings onto us!
