Travel tip of the week

Airline lost your bag?  Well if you can produce receipts, you can get reimbursed for the cost of some of your loss.  However, until just this week the airlines have been able to keep that $25 bag check fee, even when they’ve lost your bag.  Crazy?  I think so.  If you are charging for a service that you don’t in the end provide, you should refund the cost of the service.  Turns out I’m not the only traveler who thinks so, and people you’ve been heard.  The Dept. of Transportation announced this week that airlines will now have to refund checked bag fees to travelers with lost luggage.  Now if only they could mandate that your luggage be found!
