Avoid the currency surcharge…are you kidding me! | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

So I get an email from sell off saying book now to avoid the currency surcharge. WTF. These operators didn’t remove the fuel surcharge despite the huge drop in fuel prices, instead choosing to pocket the money. And now they want to introduce a currency surcharge.

How about they introduce a passenger credit for the equivalent amount for having to put up with this b.s.

Unfortunately this will happen with everything pretty much that we buy. From smartphones to food that we import. Canadian dollar is loosing value while US is getting stronger. Fuel surcharge.. West Jet just announced big profits and they are buying bigger airplane for flying to Europe…
That does pi** me off. I understand though that the dollar has dropped quite a bit, so it does make sense.But at least be fair, and dorp the fuel surcharge that was brought in because oil went over $100/barrel. Well its been under than now for months, so at least play fair.

But we all knew this was going to happen with our low CAD…

They’ll push the envelope until people show signs of balking at their shakedowns. Best thing would be if everyone was to play the waiting game but we know that won’t happen

They’ll push the envelope until people show signs of balking at their shakedowns. Best thing would be if everyone was to play the waiting game but we know that won’t happen Collective action would work, except that people will not cooperate with each other. Example: if you want the price you pay to fill up your car to go down, pick one operator and collectively boycott them until they drop their price, then collectively support them only until the others follow suit. Yes, if everyone did that it would work, but people don’t know how (or don’t trust the "other guy" to stick with the group). That is why corporations always call the shots……we let them. (the price of oil has gone down a lot more than the price at the pump…..which continually fluctuates with no rhyme or reason, and is "fixed" by the companies, but somehow the laws against price fixing don’t apply to them!) Why do we put up with it? One of life’s little mysteries.

I’ve been looking at the prices out of Winnipeg for a couple of weeks now and the prices to Cuba destinations all went up $80.00 yesterday
