SAVING ON TRAVEL FEE COSTS WITH FEECATION MEMBERSHIP
As many of you know, I will be heading off to the United Kingdom for the month of April with my family. We will be visiting England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. With only a few days left before I leave, I’m writing this post for you all to read while I’m abroad.
I wanted to make you aware of a new service I recently discovered called Feecation. Feecation.com offers it’s subscribers reimbursement for travel fees associated with traveling like airline baggage fees, hotel resort fees, car rental fees (Families – car seats, booster seats), parking fees, etc. They charge a monthly $16.97 for this service which works out to $203.64 a year. So depending upon how much you travel a year and how many fees you think you’ll incur in each trip their service could really save you some cash. The best part is they have a 30 day Free Trial to check out their service.
One of my featured writers, Cindy Mahoney who writes www.pointsandtravel.com tip me off to this service and encouraged me to try it out on my trip. After doing a quick review of their site, I decided I had nothing to lose with their 30 day Free Trial. I’ll be gone a month so, why not! I keep all my receipts anyway.

TERMS OF SERVICE:
As a Feecation.com subscriber, you can take advantage of our Cash Back rebate program and save on certain travel-related fees every time you travel. Cash Back Rebates can only be claimed for Eligible Fees (listed below under Subscription Benefits) charged while your subscription is active, unless specifically stated otherwise.
In order to receive rebates on Eligible Fees, you MUST provide Acceptable Documentation (described below) for each fee. For your convenience, every rebate you enter in our system is tracked, and can be viewed by clicking the “My Rebates” link. Backup documentation must come from the travel provider who charged you (i.e. Airline, Hotel, Car Rental or Wi-Fi provider/ company.)
The order confirmation and/or original sales receipt for the Eligible Fee that you incurred. The sales date must be provided for each rebate submitted. If you would like to claim rebates for multiple fees incurred during the same trip, an itemized receipt or order confirmation for each Eligible Fee is required.
Charges incurred during international travel are eligible for reimbursement; however, itemized receipts or order confirmations must be for U.S. Dollars. We are not currently able to convert or reimburse for expenses incurred in foreign currency.
Fee categories and fee types covered under your Feecation.com subscription can be found below under Subscription Benefits.
Taxes, government fees and other surcharges that are considered unavoidable to any traveler, and are not covered by your Feecation.com subscription.

No duplicate requests will be honored. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to reject any rebate request.
You will receive your rebate as soon as possible, but please allow 3 to 6 weeks from the time we receive your Acceptable Documentation for processing.
So, I’m going to give it a go! As you can see from the “Terms of Service” above, the only issue I might run into is any fees that will be charged in a foreign currency will not be reimbursable. I will ask though if I can have a receipt in US currency. Doubt I will get it though. I am specifically thinking of our baggage fees flying on Ryan Air from Scotland to Ireland. Well, at any rate, I think I will save some cash and it will be interesting to see how much. I will for sure report back on my experience with this service, the processing and how quickly I receive my rebate. If you have a trip coming up soon, I would suggest trying it out too. You don’t have anything to loose with the 30 day Free Trial. Easy enough to cancel before the thirty days is up to avoid any fees.
