British Airways - Credit Card Fee
British Airways has announced that they will introduce a £4.50 fee on all bookings made with any credit card, starting on 1st March 2011.
The airline has advised it is going to bring global distribution system / travel management bookings in line with other distribution channels like their own website, where they already charge the fee on credit card transactions.
Wexas Travel Management expects other airlines to follow suit in the coming months.
We recommend clients pay by credit card or Lodged Card programmes. In addition to extended credit terms, many card issuers also provide additional benefits such as points accrual and management information.
