Most Annoying Travel Fees 2011
Travel Fee: Hotel Wi-Fi
The Cost: $24 per day average.
How to Avoid It: The same hotel that
charges for Internet access in your room may offer free access in public areas.
Or, hoof it to a nearby coffee shop with free Wi-Fi. Frequent traveler? Use a
MiFi card for your laptop to tap into cellular networks. It’s often free when
you sign up for a two-year contract with a company like Verizon and pay $35 per
month for 3GB of data. The tech savvy can jury-rig their Bluetooth-enabled cell
phone as a modem. And remember many hotel chains, such as Fairmont and Hyatt,
make Internet access available for free to guests in their loyalty programs.
