I wonder too. I just posted on this on the OAT site. I posted yesterday, as did three or four others and the posts were unreadable.

I'm not happy about this $100 charge and wonder about the explanation. I'm being charged the $100 for my fall trip and am doing land only, making my own air arrangements.

I have a bad feeling about it -- hope there are no more surprises coming.

The posts on that topic are back in their proper place today but I don't know if any are missing.  I suspect the problem is related to a recent change that reduced the long list of places visited in posts which is a change I was pleased to see.  However, it appears they implemented the change before doing adequate testing.

Hello All -

There was a technical issue late yesterday with our display feature.  This has been fixed and all posts are displaying correctly now.  We have not deleted any posts.

If all the posts are available on this site, where are they? I only see the ones that refer to the 100.00 charges and the one praising the trip.....Is this part of the technical problem.

Thank You,

According to our invoice on "My Account" for our OCT., 2011 trip the $100.00/person  increase is listed as:

"Currency and Transportaion Price Increase".

Hello good people!

What is this 100.00 fee posted by a few travelers?  I had traveled three times before and am planning another in April.  So, what am I supposed to look for?  Thanks for all your help.

Hello anonymous ,

If you haven't been notified of an increase, then it's unlikely that you were charged the $100 fee.  To verify this, go to your account information and look at the invoice for the April trip.

 It seems people are getting different explanations for the $100 charge per person. I called to make a final payment for a trip in June and asked what the additional charge was for. I was told it was because we were having some transfers on our trip!? We've always had transfers on our trip and why is this answer different from others?
