Moneyville was doing a series of articles about extra fees. So I mentioned my experience ordering tickets for the International Festival of Authors at Harbourfront Centre.
Then I heard from others who were shocked at the size of the ticket fees. Is there a way to get around them?
Seems to me there’s a trend to advertise lower prices and then zap you with surcharges. It’s hardly informed consent if you don’t learn the total cost of the transaction until the very end.
Are the ticket fees here to stay? And why do you get less and less service for the charges you pay?
