Travel Tip: Remember to Factor in a la Carte Airline Fees

The introduction of a la carte fees by most major airlines over the past year has gotten mixed reactions. Many customers are peeved at having to pay extra for everything from a checked bag to a blanket, while others point out that the unbundled fee structure means you don’t have to pay for services you don’t use.

Whatever your feelings on a la carte fees, remember to factor them in as you bargain-shop for flights this Summer — what seems like a steal can quickly turn into a ripoff as fees rack up. Next time you get ready to book a flight, refer to this handy chart from USA Today to keep airlines' extra charges straight and make sure you're getting a real bargain.
