I was just checking out a few prices for a holiday in November and decided to look at Travel City Direct.
As it’s close to Xmas I decided to see what I could get for my money.
I was presently surprised to see that if I went first class and I stayed at pop century the whole deal came in at £3310.00 for a family of 4. And the service (on paper) does look very impressive.
I then checked the cheaper option of traveling in the economy seats for the same holiday and that came in at £1760.00 which again seems good.
(Both the above prices have had the car hire deducted as I don’t drive in the USA)
Now ive never used Travel City before and I’m not saying I will do.
But the main thing that struck me as being strange was this.
If I travel First Class the room for the 2 weeks at Pop Century costs me £781.00
But if I travel in the economy seats the same room costs me £432.00.
Why is it that if you travel first class you pay £330.00 more for the exact same room? Now some people will say you should pay more because you have more money. BULL. Also you could say they charge you more because they THINK you have more money.
The point im trying to make is this.
Are they allowed to do this? To me it just doesn’t seem fare.
PS. I wonder what would happen if someone really got a bee in there bonnet and reported this to the office of fair trading (I can assure you I won’t be) but this has to be a discrimination of some kind.
PPS. Sorry for going on.
