It has come to our attention that some travel agencies are starting to assess a surcharge for the use of their service.  Our understanding of this surcharge is that travel agencies are attempting to recoup lost/reduced commissions normally paid to them from the airlines.  No additional service is being provided for this surcharge.

Please be advised that this surcharge may not be paid by state agencies, and as such should not be vouchered for payment.  Inquiry should be made with the travel agency prior to doing business with them to ensure that no surcharge applies.

If you have questions regarding this surcharge, please contact Cheri Greene at (850) 414-7861 (SUNCOM 994-7861) or Sharon Schrader at (850) 414-7835 (SUNCOM 994-7835).
