The other day, I sat down to book a flight to Cabo for a friend’s bachelorette party. I thought it would come out to 500. I felt so naïve when the total was almost 1000 dollars. What was crazier to me was that half my ticket price was made up of fees and taxes. I decided to do a little research and see what the cause of all these extra fees were and why I have been paying so much extra for my airline tickets recently.
