Sneaky Travel Fees
Local-Telephone-Call SurchargesWhy you’re being charged: In hotels without a wireless Internet connection, you may be charged for using the phone line with your computer modem. If you use it for at least 20 minutes, you’ll be charged a long-distance rate or a flat fee that’s usually around $25.
The cost: $1 to $2.50 a call (including 800 numbers).
How to get around it: If you plan on using a modem, ask about the charges for this before your make your reservation, and write down the day, the time, and the name of the reservationist, in case you need to dispute a charge.
