I have booked a tour of Turkmenstan and Uzbekstan with a UK travel agent who in turn has booked with an agent over there. Now the my travel agent is saying that I need a letter of invitation for Turkmenstan and it will cost me $100.
I am not happy with this. I thought the travel agents who have our booking should arrange the letter of invitation for free as they are getting our tour business.
Is this this usual (agents asking $100 for LOI)? Is $100 a fair price?
[I have seen Turkmenstan travel agencies on net advertising LOI for $50 even if you do not book with them.]
