Re: Merchants may be allowed to charge extra for credit cards

I hope you are right about the surcharges Dave. Especially for airlines and hotels as a credit card is highly recommended.


Although most airlines and hotels do charge credit card booking fees in places where surcharges are already legal like Australia. I really hope that doesn't happen here. Americans have a different mindset with their credit cards and airlines and hotels to a lesser extent are already on the public's bad side with regard to fees.


As a frequent traveler I would hate to see that happen. In no instance would i pay the surcharge but it will be a pain trying to monitor my bank account if I happen to have multiple airline and hotel reservations at the same time I would risk my account being overdrawn due to the holds.
