We just booked our first trip to Sandals Whitehouse using a travel agent. We paid for our airfare in full and paid a deposit on the hotel. After booking our trip, I received a letter from the travel agent, asking me to sign a form acknowleging that the airline tickets and hotel I purchased are subject to supplemental price increases due to additional costs imposed by a travel supplier or government. The form basically authorizes the travel agency to charge my credit card for such additional amounts.
According to the travel agency's letter, this is in accordance with the new Department of Transportation Consumer Airline Protection Rules.
I have never seen anything like this, and I was not told about this prior to booking our trip. Can anyone shed any light on this? I'm not inclined to sign anything authorizing the travel agency to charge me more for a trip I've already booked.
