Scam alert: Avoid hidden fees when booking your next trip

This isn’t truly a scam, but it is a place where folks can be tricked into paying extra for their summer vacations.
Even when you carefully plan and budget for a vacation, additional travel expenses often crop up, thanks to a sneaky technique called drip pricing. BBB recommends the following tips to predict, prepare for, and even avoid the hidden travel fees buried in the fine print.
Watch out for resort fees.
These fees – sometimes called ‘destination fees’ or ‘urban fees’ – are often not listed on hotel aggregator websites, which means you need to click through several pages to find the hotel’s final price.
