Please read the following carefully!
TravelSiteCritic.com is not a “seller of travel” or a travel agency, we simply spread the word about great travel deals that we find on the internet, and provide a link to the travel agency that is selling the travel deal. Nonetheless, we want you to be aware that, unless otherwise indicated, the airfare prices listed on TravelSiteCritic.com may not include all applicable taxes, charges and government imposed fees. This includes vacation packages that include airfare as part of the package. The price we publish is exactly what we find advertised on the airline or travel agency website at the time it was published. The total amount of the airfare or vacation (including taxes & fees) should be prominently displayed when you click the link we provide to the travel agent’s or airline carrier’s website. Starting January 20, 2012, each new airfare or airfare-inclusive travel deal posted on TravelSiteCritic.com will show the “total price” including all taxes & fees, exactly as it advertised on the specified airline or travel agency website. Baggage fees may be additional. The following overview will give you an idea of what fees & taxes may apply to any booking that includes airfare:
Passenger Facility Charges: Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs) of up to $18.00 USD may apply depending upon the itinerary chosen.
Federal Excise Tax/Segment Fee: A federal excise tax or segment fee of up to $3.70 USD does apply per flight segment, if this tax is not included already in the advertised fare. A flight segment is defined as one takeoff and one landing.
