Beware the 3% credit card fee

Planning to buy tickets online from a foreign airline? Well watch out. My husband sent me a link this week to an article on the Consumerist.com. In it a person who purchased airline tickets online from Aer Lingus, in dollars, is assessed the 3% foreign transaction fee. Further investigation showed that the website he used is actually located in Dublin.  However, I don’t believe a transaction conducted in dollars should be assessed this fee.

Time to check your credit card’s fine print to see if this could happen to you.
