June 13 (Reuters) – Vacationers planning to go abroad this
summer can save big on their foreign currency transactions if
they plan ahead.
The best strategy for international travelers is to use a
credit card that doesn’t charge extra fees for converting
currency, according to a study released today by Card Hub, a
web-based comparison site () where
consumers can apply for credit cards.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Just when you thought airlines were done with ridiculous fees and onerous policies, Spirit Airlines’ announces it’s raising a charge for carry-on bags to $100 and United Airlines says it will no longer allow families with small children to board early. And that’s not to mention that it’s becoming common practice to put a premium on aisle and window seats, forcing families that want to sit together to both pay for an upgrade and pay a fee to be assigned seats.
With this new line in the sand comes the suggestion of regulation. U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, this week asked for changes in federal policy to regulate airline seating so families aren’t forced to have to pay extra to stay together on flights.
