Ryanair makes incorrect charges
Saturday, 20 October 2007 00:10
Every time you make a reservation with Ryanair, they charge extra for using a credit card. According to Visa, businesses are not allowed to do that, unless the local laws says so. Mr Karl-Henrik Sax therefore got his money back when turning to the card issuer with a complaint, tells Swedish daily Expressen. Despite the fact that Ryanair know that they are breaking the rules, Ryanair continous to charge extra for credit cards. Another example of the company's rudeness. Swedish Ombudsman for Consumers is taking Ryanair to court for violating the EU regulation on re-embursements for delayed or cancelled flights.   Swedish website reports further and wants everyone to claim their money back.

Should I change at home or when I get there?
Friday, 19 October 2007 17:54
Money exchange isn't always easy. With the Euro, travel in Europe has become much easier. Travelling to other countries can be trickier. Not only do you need to consider the exchange rate, but also look into issues like: what are the fees for cashing out money in an ATM? What restrictions are there on how much I can cash out at once? In the US and Europe you can often take out relatively big amounts - and thereby only pay one fee. In other countries this is not the case. In Argentina for example you can only take out 300 pesos (600 SEK or 100 US $) at once. If you need bigger amounts of money you have to cash out many times - and pay the charge each time.

TUIfly flies from Stockholm to Hannover and Stuttgart. Viking Airlines flies to Beirouth, Thassaloniki, Erbil and Heraklion. There are also more airlines that offers lower prices but aren't typically a low fares airline, like Air Baltic with services to Riga for 29 Euro. Checkin Apartments has a listing over airlines on it's site and Svenska Dagbladet also carries a list. Even the Vatican state is opening up it's own low fares airline.
