  1. Beware of *VIVAAEROBUS*
    They will give you a total but when you view your credit card statement you will find that they overcharged you. When you call, they will say that they tacked on all kinds of ridiculous charges and refuse to refund the overcharges. I also got charged over $20 in foreign transaction fees from my bank!

  2. Mogabooboo — That really stinks! I’m not too surprised as the $9.99 fare sounds more like a come on than anything else. Still, the foreign transaction fees from your bank seem quite steep — have you considered contacting your bank to have them waived? Lots of banks already do business in Mexico so that shouldn’t be a problem for them.
