Most people are used to the hidden fees they find when purchasing airline tickets or hotel rooms. A common hotel fee is the resort fee that gets tacked on when you rent a room for the night. Often the hotel does not even have any ‘resort’ options.
However, it also loops in wifi into the charge. It can also be called a facilities fee and, like you can imagine, failing to pay the fee can cost you the ability to use their facilities.
Booking websites like Booking.com plan on charging commissions on this fee. What does this mean for you?
Well, this means hotels may be pushed to be more honest.
If the fee is less hidden, they will probably find a different way to secretly pick your pocket.
