I actually enjoy traveling with children. I love introducing them to family and friends around the world, and I even revel in the sense of wonder they exude during the journey. Yet, myself and other new parents have discovered the most obnoxious airline charge, the international lap child fee.
I wrote a piece about it for Money Talks News, which has since gotten picked up by Yahoo Finance. I am posting all of this here at Steele Street for three reasons:
- Educate people about this outrageous fee, and how to avoid it.
- Illustrate how my experience in travel, personal finance, and credit cards often intersect in stories like this.
- Show how I write a piece for one outlet that gets carried on others.
