    My first question is 'what classifies as a child'
  • admin2009/02/07 19:47:13
    ahhh - one under 12.

    Ha - how much of a rip off is it that they charge you $25 per ticket for payments made with charge or credit cards. Also - dont bother ring the telesales... thats going to cost you another $50 or $60 per adult.....

    Like the idea of the deal - reckon they're being pretty sharp though with their charges.

    $25 for a CC sale :eek: that is ridiculous!

    but I guess some banks are charging 2-3% on transactions paid with via CC.

    QF have been charging like that for a while; it's not something new to this sale. Sadly, many other Australian alrlines are pretty similar. After all (from their perspective) why not...?

    Its more and more common isn't it.

    Think the thing that made me snap to attention was more that it was 25 bucks than it was a sly (but small) charge.

    For a flight to the UK for example it represents 1.25% of the ticket cost. At $2000 for the overall ticket ok its not much - but if you bought a ticket costing $500 its 5%. There's not a whole lot of options to buy online except by credit card (or ...cough... paypal.... ripoff......) so either you pay it or perhaps take the telesales option where I'm assuming they charge you the telesales fee + credit card fee.

    Bugs me.... the sale itself is good value - half price for you and junior but I personally think the sly scummy 'add on' charges stink.
