The credit card and debit card charges are often rip-offs, as they are usually well over the % commission charged by the credit card companies and often are charged per person and not per transaction.

What I find also very annoying is that airlines, ( Lufthansa, BA, Air France etc ), advertise special offers such as "Europe with Lufthansa from only Euro 49.00*" and then the "*" is somewhere in miniscule writing defined as being not including taxes and other charges which usually doubles or triples the final price !
Not sure if this is a world wide term, but the Aussies call this really annoying tactic "drip pricing" and its actually illegal in Australia.
