A note regarding the Department of Transportation’s new price advertising rule….
We would like to make our valued A.C.T. travelers aware of the Department of Transportation’s new price advertising rule and the steps that we are taking to be in compliance. The Department’s new rule affects all travel programs that feature air, and requires that advertised fares include all government-imposed taxes, fees, and fuel surcharges that the Customer is being asked to pay.
When you visit our website, displayed soon will be two fares, a land only price and one with air that includes all government excise taxes, government segment fees, September 11th security fees, and airport passenger facility charges. It is important to note that fares have not increased, but that the initial fare display now includes all updated, verifiable government-imposed taxes and fees, including port charges and, if in conjunction with a fly-to destination, national park entrance fees. Customers have always paid these taxes and fees; however, previously they were added separately to the invoice at time of purchase.
