Resort fees, ticket fees, service fees — you just can't go anywhere without a fee being tacked on. And some of them are...creative. Let's let our blood collectively boil as we scroll through these 16 ridiculous fees people were charged.
1.This Airbnb cleaning fee that you'd have to put a dollar toward every day for a year to cover for one night.
2.The fees this person's university charged them for a semester that was completely online.
3.This person who was surprised with a 4% "economic recovery fee" after treating themselves to a night out.
4.This $50 gift card that had dwindled itself because of fees.
5.The $800 in ticket fees here. I'll never understand why tickets have so many fees.
6.This up-front "no surprises" bill that doesn't hurt any less.
7.This cruise fare that seems like it purposely tried to negate all of its discounts with fees.
8.These Uber fees that nearly doubled the cost of the ride.
9.This air show that charges $10 in admission and a $150 parking fee.
10.This to-go fee that truly proves we can't just pay for food anymore.
11.This employer who makes their employees pay a 3% surcharge on credit card tips.
12.This $100 "convenience" fee someone was charged to pay their rent.
13.This dining fee that's as much as a tip — and the tip is still expected.
14.This $46 "service charge" to pay $1,735 in tuition.
15.This Wi-Fi fee that isn't even included in the resort fee.
16. Finally, this outrageous fee incurred because the airline had to print two paper tickets. SMH.
Hey @Ryanair, my parents who are in their 70s and 80s, had accidentally downloaded the return flight boarding card instead of the outgoing ones and you charged them £110 to print them at the airport. £110 for 2 pieces of paper which took 1 minute. Shame on you
