I’m so sick of falling for travel scams and I just learned about one in Las Vegas the hard way. Yesterday, I took a taxi from the airport to Mandalay Bay and the $17 fare quickly turned to $24 because of tip and a $3 charge for using my credit card!
Ooh, does it tick me off to get suckered, and the City of Las Vegas should make it illegal for taxi drivers not to disclose the fee in advance. While they are at it, they should make the company (VeriFone) that owns the machine change the wording from ‘voucher’ to ‘fee’ (see photo above).
Travel tip: No matter where you are in the world be sure to ask if there’s an extra charge for using your credit card because I know they do it in England too.
