Default Wkly Blog- Are Travel Agents Entitled to Charge Service Fees?

My blog this week asks the question.. Are Travel Agents Justified in Charging Service Fees.

Here's the link.....

http://www.cruisemates.com/blog/201003021321/cruise-travel-agents-justified-charging-service-fees/

Click that link, head on over, read the blog and I'd be very interested in having you post your thoughts on the topic THERE. We'd like to hear from both travel agents and cruisers on this topic.

Interesting blog, Kuki.

I can only tell you how my Travel Agent does things. She doesn't like the $25.00 fee , but her agency (the "boss" ) requires that she add it to the price of a cruise. After our first completed booking with her, she's taken the fee off all of our other bookings at final payment. (I suspect she's taking it out of her commision.)

As long as they are upfront about it, I don't have a problem with a TA charging a small fee.
