Among the most noteworthy extras: casinos and independent hotels that charge non-negotiable "resort" fees, such as the Golden Nugget Las Vegas, which recently added a mandatory $5 nightly "downtown destination" fee to its room rates. Travelers say they're sick of being nickel-and-dimed. "We're being fee'd to death," says Marty Lewis, a minister from Dallas. "Baggage charges, seat charges and so forth - I'm surprised there's no charge to use (airlines') spacious bathrooms." Interestingly, the Federal Trade Commission, which is supposed to protect us from anti-competitive, deceptive or unfair business practices, calls the system of adding fees to your final bill "drip" pricing. It warned several hotels about their pricing earlier this year, although the practice appears to have continued virtually uninterrupted. Like water-drip torture, it may be only a matter of time before travelers snap. Get the full story at USA Today
