Don’t Be Fooled By Ads Offering $99.99 Hotel Rooms Print

They’re all over the computer screen when you’re planning that springtime trip. Not just the phony penny off to make you believe the price is lower, but hiding the actual out-of-pocket rate you’ll pay.

At check-out time, that quoted price per day will grow to $120 or more. The come-on ad failed to mention taxes, resort fees and other add-ons. So, when booking by phone, internet or travel agency, demand the actual price you’ll have to pay. And don’t forget to demand: How much off that price is the senior discount?
