Flying to Austria: Some airports – including Bristol, Liverpool and Luton – charge for the privilege of using the ‘fast track’ security lane.

Many also make a tidy sum out of selling resealable, transparent plastic bags to put liquids in to carry through security –

WHAT TO DO: Get to the airport in good time, and buy the bags from your supermarket, where they’ll cost about a quarter of the price.


Being charged extra at hotels for breakfast, and for VAT and other taxes, can get me worked up.

But what makes my blood boil more than anything else is paying through the nose for internet access.

From my experience, the more you’ve paid for your room, the more likely it is that you’ll have to pay extra to go online.

I’ve just checked internet rates at a couple of five-star hotels in London, and 24 hours’ access will cost me more than my monthly connection at home.

WHAT TO DO: Check what is and isn’t included when you book – and if you’re threatened with an extra charge for wi-fi, march off to a nearby cafe, where the chances are it will be free.

Car hire

Rental firms often try to persuade you when you pick up the car to upgrade to more comprehensive insurance that reduces the ‘excess’ (the amount you have to pay if there’s damage to the vehicle) to zero.

Excesses on car rentals are often hundreds of pounds. But you can pay as much as £10 a day for the additional cover.

My other big bugbear is petrol. Many firms insist you pay for a full tank, and expect you to return it empty (which is impossible), or charge up to 40% more than pump prices if you’re supposed to return with a full tank and don’t.

WHAT TO DO: Buy in advance a much better-value stand-alone excess waiver policy.

If given a choice, opt to be allowed to return the car with a full tank of petrol uncharged – and before setting off, establish where the nearest petrol station is to the rental depot to refuel at the end of your trip.
