I just booked a plane ticket to Thailand for the end of the month. The cost of the ticket is 320,000 won, which I think is a good price, but then they've tacked on a 125,000 won tax to that amount. That's like 35% tax!

Is this normal?

Cheers,

Yes, especially with fuel prices going up all the time. The tax usually includes air port usage fees, additional fuel costs and then taxes.

I just got an email back that breaks it down into there seperate airport tax charges, oil cost, and then some kind of insurance. What is that all about? Is that normal?

Thanks,

we've reserved tickets (can't book them yet they say, too far in advance) for Thailand in November and that's about the price we've been quoted........

What agent?
