comment How can I deal with people asking to switch seats with me on a plane?
@Andy I understand the question and I agree with the OP. It can be annoying if happening all the time. But I don't think that's so general. If you're switching one or two seats I don't see a problem with moving. You can make someone else life more pleasant while yours will be the same. You just need to stand up, walk 2 steps and sit.

Thanks! I wouldn't call either sardines, tuna a paste. I don't know what you have in mind but most of the canned food I know is not a paste. Would that make a difference?

@Calchas true, but travel agents often have access to better prices and may give you a better deal. Some can even give up of part of their comission to offer a better price. The problem is that lately many online agents offer "great" prices at the expense of hidden fees. This VISA processing commission seems clearly the case.

@Calchas I am peerfectly aware of that. But that is not the problem. Maybe I was not clear. The price that I got in the travel agent website was exactly the price that was announced in the price agregator. I wouldnt call that just a coicidence. The problem was with the final (abusive) processing fees.

@JonathanReez ah, but happened to me is that they listed the full price and than in the end I got extra 150 euros of transaction costs (visa)

@JonathanReez - Kayak seems an agregator. At least I allways end up in another website when I search through them.

@Relaxed maybe not the best example than, but the situation I describe goes beyond that.

By tax I mean comission. But the agency uses that term no "agency taxes". It's like you go to the supermarket with the cheapest milk and when you check out they say, well we have a tax over the transaction. It's not their tax, fee or comission. It's the processing fee for the transaction. They "blame" a third party although you know standard transaction fees are not that high.

Hi @relaxed, this is an Internet travel agency. I have no idea which country they are based on. They have translations to several languages. If that is of interest I am in Europe. I am talking about searching in an agregator and than picking a price and going to the on line travel agent directly.
